    Here is a website where she shows how to impliment rick rack in your quilt binding. I think it looks adorable, especially for baby quilts.

    BEAUTIFUL - word of advice - before using rick rack please prewash and dry because it does shrink and you could ruin your quilt when washed later - hope this saves someones quilt. Quilt teacher and author Michelle Linder told me this when I was working on an embellished Christmas quilt.

    I wonder if the author meant to say "binding" when she said "bias." I have not had good luck using bias binding on a straight-edge quilt.

    I'm not sure but I think she cut her binding on the bias. 45 degree angle. I think. :?:
