Ribbonry is done and Blog Hop Party begins

Ribbonry quilt
My Ribbonry quilt is complete. Woo hoo!!  I finally figured out a very quick and easy way to make this quilt using nickel nine patch quilt blocks and I have written a pattern for it too. Keep reading to see how you can win one! The nickel nine patch block is simply a block made from nine 5" squares of fabric and is the basic block in several of my patterns including two FREE patterns that are posted here.

I even quilted this one myself!  I used irregular lines of quilting across the width of the quilt.  It actually turned out exactly like I planned.  I also pieced the batting.  It was way easier than I could ever imagine.  I just butted edges together that I could tell had not been cut and used a wide zigzag stitch to sew them together.  Very easy and thrifty!  I have so many scraps of batting from all those quilts I made last year and I need to use them.



Those of you who are familiar with this blog may remember voting for which quilt I should make next during the last Blog Hop Party in December.

This is the rough design that received the most votes-

Ribbonry quilt
Blog Hop Party with Give-Awaysand my Ribbonry quilt is the final product just in time for the next  Blog Hop Party hosted by Quilting Gallery.  Starting Saturday, March 17th, you can join in on the fun. There will be lots of sites to visit and each one will be having a give-away!  Please tell all your friends too.


For my Give-Away, I'll be giving away 5 FREE patterns of Ribbonry and 5 FREE patterns of  Triangle Confusion, another recently released pattern. To be entered in the drawing, leave a comment on this post telling me which pattern you would like to have. Make sure I have an email address for you so I can send you a pattern if you are chosen.  All winners will be chosen at random on March 24th after the hop ends on the 23rd.
