    Went to the Quilt Show in Bay City, Mi yesterday and they had made all their own ribbons....so much work but I just loved them....the director said they had a committee of 8 women that made them and their were 5 kinds...blue-first red-second-yellow-third salmon- honorable mention and green for something.... first quilt I think....just added so much to the show

    some quilts had as much as 3 ribbons

    Yeah, even if I knew my quilt didn't have a chance to win, I'd still enter "just in case" I might win one of those unique ribbons :lol: :lol:

    I'm surprised no one's thought of it before.

    Hi LindaR,
    I think this just might catch on! So neat!

    I have thought about you a lot this last week. I pulled out my christmas fabric to try and figure out what to make with it. I love it so much, I hate to cut it up. LOL!

    the ribbon ends were really stiff and I think that what they did was wonderunder the two fabrics together. There was a raw seam in the back so they must have ironed the fabric over a strip and then folded the fabric over and ironed to finish.. they then cut the ends in a upside down V.

    That should be industry standard. Winning a ribbon is great of course, but that design really adds so much more meaning. Excellent idea. Glad you shared.

    (When I was a kid, we had a cabin in Rose City that we'd go up to mostly in the winter to snowmobile.)

    The quilt ribbons are one of those ideas that make me slap my forehead and say DUH!!!!!!!!! I mean, it's a quilt show, right??
    Seriously, what better keepsake for the winners of a quilt show.
    Thanks so much for sharing.
