"They Came From Outer Space" by bakewell 

Have you finished a quilt top but found that it needed a little bit more sparkle?  Why not add a touch of something from the sewing department of your local fabric store?  The trim and edging section is filled with dozens of ways to add unique details to a project.

Sold by the yard or pre-packaged, edgings include many options such as piping, rick rack, lace, and ribbon with beads.  You just may find the perfect piece to set off your quilt.  bakewell found that black rick rack was just the touch she needed for her "They Came From Outer Space" quilt.  So, the next time a quilt has you stumped for ideas take a stroll through the sewing department for inspiration.
