Woven Ribbons

Here’s the Woven Ribbons quilt all finished and ready for the auction.  I can’t wait to get started on a second one for me. I think I’ll make it larger to fit my bed.

Now, what’s wrong with this picture of the design wall?

  Hmm the quilt that was on the wall is now laying on top of the tv in the lower left of photo and there seems to be pieces missing from what’s left on the wall.  A gust of wind in the window has rearranged my design wall – not for the better.  So I have to go stick things back up there.  In the meantime I came up with a plan for those pieces that are left up on the wall.  I’m going to add a section to each block of it’s respective middle fabric to make them more elongated.  And then set them together like this.

 Reminds me of stained glass church windows.

I’ve been busy reclaiming the bedroom floor – washing summer clothes that had been in storage to get rid of their wrinkled mess, bagging up clothes to go for donation, some to just toss, and finishing straightening out the closet.  All that between changing wash loads, folding, made some german potato salad for dinner to to with a pork roast – yumm – and even knit a few rows on my sweater.  Even tho a lot of running back and forth between laundry, bedroom and kitchen, a very low key day. 

 Also found hanks of yarn stashed in various places so got some of them wound into balls ready to go when I want them — some I had forgotten about so like getting new yarn all over again!

Now I just need to write up a few cutting directions for a project and I can go back to my knitting.

  1. oooooooooooooI like the stainded glass window. Thanks for sharing. I do want to do the quilt. Also and idea for odd triangle pieces, which I have thrown in a basket.

    • Thanks Joyce – I think the black will really make those batiks pop. I may have to add some more blocks from the stash to it.

  2. The stained glass window does grab the eye, doesn’t it? The woven ribbons turned out really nicely but I wonder when you will have time to make your own with all the knitting, lol!

    • I’ll find time to make my own Woven Ribbons – it’s actually a quick one to make. I think it will go along with me and my featherweight when I go to a cabin up North next month for a week or so. The trick will be to see if I can find time between now and then to get it all precut. Not holding my breath on that!

  3. Love the stained glass quilt idea!!! how large were the HST’s??? I have so many in various sizes from over the years…Denise your design for them is fabulous!!!!!!

    • I haven’t trimmed up the HSTs yet but think they’ll probably be 2 – 2-1/4 inches or something like that. Would be easy to do with any size HSTs tho.
