As promised, here is the ribbon quilt I was talking about last week.
My daughter made this quilt with most of her Fair ribbons.
I didn’t think that the ribbons would be a problem stitching through and they
weren’t. It was my first ribbon quilt. There are not many of these around.
Julie made this cute sheep quilt. I really love all the colors and fabrics. How can you
not love a cute quilt like this? It made me smile the whole time I was working on it.
“Popcorn” was the name of the design stitched all over the quilt. It kind of looks like
wool so that’s why it was chosen. We even went further and used a bright lime
green polyester thread for the top and the backing.
Here’s a colorful quilt I worked on recently.”Soho” is the name of the overall
stitching design on the quilt.
A close up for you. Love all the bright colors in this quilt.
Roopa made this quilt for her son. I’m not sure who designed the tiger
but it looks like something Violet Craft would make. She designs alot of
fractured geometric patterns and this one fits perfectly into this category.
I did manage to finish it yesterday so I will have to post some
pictures of the finished quilt, in all of its glorious texture.
Due to all that’s going on right now, I am trying to sketch daily.
Here is what I drew last week.
Can you guess all the items in the photo?
I have even started challenging my kids to draw with me. It helps to take our minds off what’s
going on and helps us to be able to do something together. My son isn’t living at
home right now so it works out even better.
I read an article last week, that mentioned how Winston Churchill took up
painting, at the age of 40, while the second World War was going on. It
actually helped him to de-stress and get through the war.
What are you and your kids doing to stay busy and entertained? Maybe
try something you have done before? You may be pleasantly surprised.
Have a good week and stay safe.
One thought on “A Ribbon Quilt…”
I’m so impressed with the ribbon quilt. Creativity runs in your family, Ruth. And, not to mention, that’s alot of ribbons. I think I see a trend happening. Can you do anyth with soccer trophies!
