    Double Line Decorative Stitching

    I have had this quilt top "Vintage Vacation" done for a couple of years from a pattern that I designed. A friend of mine gave me the fabrics that her mom had from the 1970s. When it came to quilting, I thought a double line decorative zig-zag would be a fun choice as it resembles ric-rac to me.

    Interesting idea. I have that stitch on my Bernina. I never have used it before.

    The patterns and colors of those fabrics are just a delight. I use that stitch a lot on my Babylock . I have made ribbons sewn on flannel with that stitch to make eyeglass covers.

    I love your quilt. I'd like to see pic of the whole quilt. I love 70's fabrics. That stitch is perfect for the quilt.
    Blessed are the quilters, for they are the piecemakers.

    I have used that stitch and others on quilts. I have liked the effect-especially when I used a high contrast thread on a border. It is fun to do.

    You are right, it does look like rick rack.
