Add Dimension to Your Quilt with Shirring; An Example

April 25, 2009

Gabriela at Gabi with an Eye sent to me these photos of a quilt she made for her daughter. As you can see, she inserted shirring as one of the borders.


In this next photo you can see she also edged the shirring with a length of lace. How pretty and dainty for a little girl! P1010101

This is a very special quilt! Thanks for sharing Gabi!!
