    Woven Ribbons

    I pieced this over the weekend. It will be a snuggly ‘sofa quilt’ so will have a plush back also in green (to match sisters decor). I have pinned it all and will now begin my least favourite job of quilting.

Size:  481.4 KBI used the same pattern only in Christmas fabrics. It was a very fun quilt to put together. Sometimes you have to watch directional fabrics. This will be a seasonal day bed throw. I like your green one too.

    I really like that pattern...it obviously makes up wonderfully in different colors. I love the greens/yellows and I’m sure your sister will cherish it.

    BattleAxe, I like your version in Christmas fabrics too...great finish.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    I love the pattern. Every time I look at something I have not tried I say to myself, " I have to try that ". This is one of those. Is the pattern available in a magazine or where can it be purchased? Love your choice of colors.

    I love the greens you chose. That will look so nice on her sofa. What a nice sister you are. By plush do you mean minky? Please post a pic of completed quilt and good luck quilting.

    I also am drawn to this pattern every time I see it. I does look really confusing although everyone is saying it's so much fun!! I may bite the bullet if I can find the pattern.

    It’s really pretty. I love that pattern too. My least favorite part is the sandwiching and pinning.

    That pattern has always intrigued me.

    Is it hard to do?

    Thanks for posting up the link Watson - I wasn’t able to get on yesterday. Bearisgray - it really is a very simple pattern as long as you keep your piles for each row together. I’ve only been seeing 28 months and I did it all in a weekend (including the cutting). It is easiest if you use non directional prints but there were some I wanted to use so you just have to make those the horizontal rather than vertical ribbons.

    The pattern says you have to use WOF strips and 1/3 yard of each fabric. I managed perfectly well with fat quarters which helped to make a little dent in the stash (although you do get a chunk of each FQ left over)
