To all edge tatters, my question goes out to you.
How do you pick any ole edging you like, just because it is
THE EDGE you want for a project,
and know it will fit on your pre-made piece you are planning
on attaching it to, how do you know that a center motif, if there is one
will end up in the center, the corners will actually FIT in the corners...
Sure it is easy to do if you are making the center to fit from scratch,
I have done that many times, and I have done a few dozen straight edges,
and a small seam mistake is easy to fix or fudge.
but I want a particular edge, say a very fancy wedding piece, with
lots of steps up and down, and it is going on a square piece, and I want the
corners to match up with the fabric exactly.
Do you spend the time making swatch pieces of lace and measuring?
Do you need to be a math wiz and add a into b plus 5 over xmc at the witner games?
Do I need to know how fast my shuttles will fly compared to the speed
of an European swallow if leaving a northbound train when a
volcano erupts in southern Italy on a Tuesday?
I seem to run into being just a couple hairs off either short or over, and my
fabrics just don't match up with my tatting, and when it is just
simple rings and chains, I can adjust the chains and either scrunch them
a little or stretch them a little in the last set, and it works out, but
any tips, what do you all do, how does everyone work around this dilema
for measuring just right and getting the corners to match perfect?
Please let me know how you all do it, I want all the suggestions I can find,
I want to try different things, and see what works best for me
because what I currently do, is only
