    I don't think the new rick rack shrinks but if you have a store of old cotton rick rack it needs to be washed in hot water and dried in the dryer so that it is done shrinking or it will shrivel up something awful. I have lots of rick rack too and also lace. I did a fan quilt with gathered lace along the edges of the fan and the base of the fan and it is beautiful.

    Thanks for the advice! I bought a sew box for 10.00 that was full of sewing stuff and lots of rick rac and I was wondering what to do with it. I love the idea as flower stems. Thank you for letting me know that I should wash it first. I also like the idea of sewing the edges like an applique

    If the whole r/r will be exposed-down the middle the sewing goes. If it's going to be half-exposed, if it's embedded in a seam then it's a little trickier. I follow this tut by Wendy Gratz. Comes out perfect. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uKnUKfyNtvc

    I've washed ric rac in the washer. I just use the smaller lingerie bags and wash in warm water with Woolite on delicate or handwash cycle. Then toss into the dryer for about 10 minutes. I use a cool setting on my iron with a pressing cloth for the really delicate lace.

    That is beautiful Joellyn!

    Here is a vest my Mom made me several years ago. It was a crazy quilt. She said she would never do a crazy quilt again! LOL I requested it. I liked the crazy quilt pattern. I still wear it now and again.

    The last rick rack I purchased was 100% polyester, which did not shrink or curl. I sewed it into the binding. Sorry, if it is hard to see in the attached photo.Name:  baby quilt for care center director.JPG
