“Our Quilting Family” a Stunning Success!

The Pioneer Quilters Unbroken Thread Quilt Show, “Our Quilting Family,” opened to an enthusiastic crowd of quilt lovers this past Tuesday, April 23, 2013!  Our featured quilters, Joyce Garrett and Jamie Wagle, were busy throughout the day, sharing their wonderful exhibit with attendees.

These sisters have done many projects together throughout the years, and in many cases have their quilts displayed side by side, as the Twisted Ribbon Bargello quilts are.

    Would either of you be interested in selling one of the “Twisted Ribbon” wall hangings, or in making another to sell?

    I found a kit for the twisted ribbon, confused about the directions for the background fabric. Do you cut this into strips as well add to the strata?

      Some of the background is incorporated into the strata, I believe. It has been years since I made a twisted ribbon myself, but I recall that at some points in the design the ribbon portions are only separated by a small piece of background. I recall making the strata, following directions to separate the strata between two fabrics, then add a piece of background the same width but at varying lengths to create the entirety of that strip. This is a complicated design, I would check online for tutorials. Good luck!
