First Little Corner Fan Finished....


I knew that embroidered rick rack would give me lots of bang for the buck!
These little corner fans are now all edged in the rick rack you see here. I like how the white stitching in it picks up the other white that is in the fans in this quilt...just another little unifying factor.
The blades are so small that to keep in scale with my seam treatments, and to avoid extra busyness, I am just outlining the seams with 2 ply silk floss...this is acting like quilting, getting the fan to flatten against the surface of the quilt and not be poofy.
One down, three to go, which I'll undertake during the first Rockies game tonight...

Such patience on the stitching and isn't ricrac just made for embellishing fan blocks? Hope the game was good-we have a sport fest weekend coming up with World Cup rugby.

Perfect. The black and green stitches on the rick rack are also unifying elements. Very elegant!
