I made this Valentine quilt to show a wide variety of techniques using Ribbon Applique.

I love working with Ribbon on my quilts and developed a technique to stitch directly on the background fabric using ribbon - 7mm and 4mm. The flowers and leaves are lovely and the stitches are just like embroidery but on a bigger scale. Ombre Ribbons that measure 2" are used to create birds using the ribbon instead of fabric. The shading in the ribbon is perfect for birds. Thinner Ombre ribbons can be woven to make a vase or basket. I have also used the wider ribbons in the borders of quilts as accents. Trims can be used to accent blocks, borders or as shapes in the blocks. There are 25 Ribbon applique blocks, 4" finished, each one made using different techniques.
