Re: How to Make Hairpin Lace

Memories! I had a made a dress in the early 1970's, burgundy colored bodice with mock wrap skirt in a gray & burgundy abstract design. I worked burgundy yarn into hairpin lace, used as fringe to outline the mock wrap skirt edge and bottom of skirt. It looked like a thicker version of the line on Mr. King's left notebook page.

But look at that pale green ribbon worked so tight that the loops can be cut and the piece holds together.

Think about hairpin lace made of 1/2" bias stips of chiffon weight print fabric. It could make a boa effect to trim a neckline or other places you would use a ruffle instead.

Re: A Satin Stitch Adds Elegant Detail to Quilts and Garments

This quilted jacked with satin stitch trim is amazing. A little more info if you please: Did you piece and quilt to create a fabric before cutting pattern pieces? What did you use for filler? You created a quilted fabric that doesn't look as thick as a quilt would be. Beautiful workmanship and even more beautiful finished jacket. Wow!!
