    Ruffles

    Does anyone have any bright ideas for using up the bags of lace that I've been "blessed" with? LOL.. I was thinking pillows, with all the different types stitched side by side, vertically.. but how about an idea for something in a quilt... some of you gals come up with the best ideas.. and my brain is stuck on this one..B

    If you have pre-gathered lace, how about twirling some up to make roses to embellish a quilt or pillow. I would use the same technique as using ribbon to make roses minus the hot glue and take a few stitches to hold them together.

      In one of the snap bag tutes there was a bag with ruffles. It was cute for little girls.

        If you have wide, flat lace it might work to overlay it on a solid strip of fabric in a quilt.

          This is made with ruffles, not lace...but you might be able to do something similar with pretty lace pieces.

            I like Bubby's idea, swirley flowers sound very springy, and we could use that right now!

              you could make a crazy quilt with lace overlays and ruffles. Ruffled lace can always be unruffled and used flat.

                I've seen strips of lace used as the frothy waters edge in seascape landscape quilts. Looks real.

                  As soon as I read lace and quilts I also thought of Crazy Quilts! LOL

                  Eleanor Burns has a pattern where she makes hearts and surrounds it with lace. I can't remember which pattern book - It might be Quilting Through the Seasons. It would make a pretty girly quilt.
