    Fons and Porter braided the ric rac and made it look very cool. They took 2 strands and wrapped them around each other. Made it look like a rope. Then they sewed down the center over a seam. I love the look and if you use the right colors you will have a wonderful boy baby quilt!!!

    I think that it may shrink a lot - at least it used to when I sewed for my girls.[/quote][/quote]
    -------------------------------------
    Years ago when we were square dancing, every piece of rick rack that I used in my first dress shrank and had to be ripped out, washed in HOT water and resewed. On a quilt it might be pretty on an ocean background, but not in areas that need to lie flat.

    I agree color has a lot to do with the choice boy/girl. Red rick rack on top above looks quite boyish to me.

    I've seen rick rack to give the illusion of waves in a baby sail boat quilt
