With or Without - Ric Rac

On the first Breast Cancer quilt completed, there is just something "extra" missing to me.  Also, I know the center two rows were mismatched on purpose since they had to be cut at 4.5" versus the 5" because they came too small.  However, to others, this may look like the quilter was having a nip of the whiskey and didn't line things up completely :-)

So, I have an idea.  I ordered several yards of 5/8" ric rac from eBay and I'm thinking of adding it to the quilt.  I mocked it up on eBay what I anticipate it looking like.  I just can't grasp how big 5/8" ric rac will look in the seams.  But, what do you think?  With, or without?  Remember, the photo below with the ric rac is computer generated, so it may be a different color/size when it comes in.  Thanks so much for your input!

Thanks for stopping by!  


  1. This is a great quilt with a great cause. I actually like it without the ric rac.

  2. Im not sure but would a black thinner ric rac be better?
