    Default scrappy rickrack

    Several weeks ago Jenny had the rick rack quilt tutorial. It looked interesting and we all discussed it. Carol came up with a new color way that changed it immensely. ME too. Can we call this the ME TOO MOVEMENT> I was interested in the pattern for all the negative space because I wanted to use my embroider machine but I really didn't like the individual solid colors surrounding it. So...I took the box of strips that were driving me nuts because they just kept piling up and I used them. This is one of my favorite quilts so far. It feels like a modern twist on an old timey quilt.Click image for larger version.

    Oh WOW, that does make a difference in the look. I like yours much better than Jenny's (sorry Jenny).


    Was it hard to embroider thru all the seams?

    WOW, Terry, just love it! Don't know where you get the energy to keep on stitching! Had to look up the tut; was traveling so I missed it originally. Jenny's is lovely, but yours, well, more WOW again!

    All I can say is oh wow your quilt is incredible!! I just love it. Way better than Jenny's. It does look sort of old fashioned and I love your colors and all the white. You sure are fabulous about putting things together!! I would join your Me Too Club in a heartbeat.
