    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

    Hi, Some time back I had some pretty print but way too bright, enter curtain fabric. The design was only 6" squares with tram tracks and cornerstones. I cut the lace to cover the squares and used softer colours in the rest of the quilt. My elderly friend was very pleased with it.

    I have been doing some research on rick rack and you can make some beautiful flowers with rick rack. I was thining a wall quilt since you would not be able to wash it. If you search on utube you will see some video. Very, Very easy to make.
