Ribbons 'n' Hearts

from bdieges.com
(7) Name: 'Quilting : Ribbons 'n' Hearts
Ribbons 'n' Hearts ribbonsnhearts

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Rotary Cutting
  • Advanced Machine Piecing Skills
  • Familiarity with setting in seams

Pattern Description:

Hearts all wrapped up with a sweet ribbon. A wonderful quilt for a baby or another love in your life! The Hearts are easy, but the Ribbons are definitely for the experienced quilter. The border is a wonderful addition to any quilt and suggestions are given in the pattern to make it larger. My Sewfasst(r) technique for making the hearts gives you Bonus Patches for an Instant Quilt, which could be made into a pillow to go along with the quilt.
