Bias Tape Patterns
Can you stand the cuteness of the little lambies? These are perfect for aprons or pillows or even quilt blocks. I wonder why they fell out of vogue? Today we have "stained glass" quilt patterns that use black bias tape to outline a shape, making it resemble the soldering in stained glass.

You find the neatest things, Barb! At first glance, I thought this was an advertisement for the tape used in making tape/Battenberg lace. But after a closer look, I am fascinated with the concept of using the tape to make pictures. I've never seen anything like that actually made up, have you?
