Twisted Ribbon Quilt

I first published this over at Suture for a Living on February 2, 2008.


I made this quilt in 2004. The white is a cotton flannel. The black is a cotton velvet left over after making a dress for one of the nieces. The print is a cotton-linen found in the bargain bin at the fabric store. The limited amounts of the black and print determined the size and helped dictate the border. I found the block design in Jinny Beyer‘s book, The Quilter’s Album of Blocks and Borders (copyright 1980). A friend found the book at an “antique” store for $4. It is a wonderful book.

The quilt is 45 inches X 56 inches and usually lays over the back of my husband’s lazy-boy chair. Rusty insisted on getting in the picture.

A close-up. Sorry the quilting doesn’t show better. The centers are quilted with roses. The ribbons are out-lined quilted.
