Quilt Edgings Part 1
This next image is another treatment that I tried. I liked it so much I did it on another quilt too. It gives a very feminine touch to a quilt. This is purchased eyelet lace that has been basted to the top by matching the upper edge of the eyelet to the outer edge of the quilt top. Since the plan was to tie this quilt, I layered the batting, then the quilt top right side up, then the backing right side down and stitched around the outside edge leaving an opening to turn it right side out. Once that was done, I slip-stitched the opening closed and tied the quilt. It is a nice finish and easy to do.
