    Default Dust ruffle

    I'm going to do this in steps... mainly because I can't do it all in one go.

    I bought two easy eyelet dust ruffles to get the length of 'fluff' (as Mike calls it) to go around the edge of the hexie quilt. I carefully removed the row of elastic that was about 3" from the top edge. (Boy, my floor is going to require the heavy duty vacuum cleaner!) From there I used Best Press and steam make all of those little holes disappear.

    That part done, I stitched two rows of basting around the upper elastic, to keep the gathers. Then I cut the elastic off.

    I just finished wonder clip clipping the eyelet onto the back of the quilt. One thing is for sure. I won't need many PT exercises today! Don't look at my unmade bed.

    The plan is to zigzag the eyelet on. I've left the excess eyelet, because I want to see how it hangs before I cut it off.

    I'm going to pin the dickens out of the eyelet when I start working on the binding so it will stay out of the way.

ID:	159777 Here's the eyelet on the quilt.

    I'm going to break for the day, as much as I'd like to keep going, it wouldn't be a good idea.

    Tomorrow, the binding will go on. I think I'm going to attach it to the back and pull to the front and use a decorative stitch in the ditch. I'll see what inspiration hits me tonight.

    that looks soooo good. where did you find that dust ruffle? it looks so nice and long. i ended up buying an 18 inch for my bed. just a tad too long, but much better than the ones i had before. Love your adaptation to your lovely quilt.
