Another Sneak Peek from Improvising Tradition
I'm excited to share another project from my new book Improvising Tradition. The Ribbons Placemats are found in the Slice and Insert section of the book. This pattern shows you both how to cut and sew curves improvisationally. These are great skills to add to your toolbox of quilting techniques.
The ribbon-like flow of the curved pieces is emphasized by the quilting on the Essex linen as well as the use of ombré fabrics. All the elements combine to make a very simple design into one that is so dynamic.
