Work In Progress Wednesday - New Ribbon

Sharon of Pintangle has made another bare cq block. It looks great with curves and lace. Have a look here. Then click on the comments to see what other needleworkers have achieved.

My Work In Progress Wednesday report is only on the crazy quilt this time.

Do you remember the little disc I bought? I blogged about it here.


Anyway, last weekend I returned to the shop, Natural Kitchen, and bought some more cheap stuff:


Among them two packs of ribbon. They are called Tyrolean Tape, and I thought they were charming. I proptly used the one with diamond pattern:

  1. your natural kitchen is well worth visiting, it is so great to see what is available from different countries. The tape works very well on the block

    1. If you have a chance to travel, then collecting small items to use for your quilting/embroidery is a great way to make a 'memory quilt'.

  2. It's surprising where one can pick up bits and pieces isn't it... I found the perfect centre for one of my 'crazy' blocks in the form of a pair of earrings from one of the large chain stores. Everyone who see it can't get over how perfect it fits with the rest of the block I had struggled finding something for the centre patch and then when I wasn't looking there it was...I have a definite bower bird tendency... My craft room bears testament to that... The braid looks great... Look forward to seeing more...

    Cheers...

    1. It offers ME so much pleasure when I look at a block with items I have picked up in various places, and yes, a pair of earrings could well live on a cq block.

    1. The ribbon was hard to stitch, some kind of tightly woven polyester, that is why I have worked mainly on the sides of the ribbon.

  4. Amazing how different it looks on your CQ. It always turns out right if you echo the colors of the fabrics on both sides of the ribbon. (the blue and pink embroidery)

    1. Thank you Marjolein, it is so good to get feedback from someone as skilled as you are. The ribbn itself was tough to work on (see comments above).
