Sashing Quilt Blocks with the Rick Rack Die

This rickrack die is absolutely fascinating. I wanted to see what would happen if I added rickrack to the sash of a quilt. Recently I bought a great novelty print that was meant to be a soft book. The soft book prints often make great baby quilts. But in order to add a little pizzazz, it’s nice to do something special in the sash or the border when using this kind of novelty print. Thus, the experiment with the rickrack die.

It took a little time to realize that it was important to have the curves turned in the right direction. The first image is the EQ7 rendering and the second is the actual quilt top that I put together. If you watch the video, you will see how I marked the die to make sure that I had a curve in the exact middle of each sash strip.
