Ribbon of Hope

Project Description

What are you most proud of? How awesome it looked when I finally pinned it to my drapes for the first full-on 'look-see'. I couldn't stop smiling!! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be intimidated by the graph, or the number of fabrics. Just take your time, if something doesn't work, change the color!

What you will need

  • The selection process took a few hours! Three quilt shops were visited to get the complete color range I was searching for
  • not sure of any of the fabric designers.

Q&A with hobbyhorse

KristaS asked:
that is so BEAUTIFUL! I love the colors and how the ribbon sticks out. It almost looks 3d. Great job!
hobbyhorse answered:
Thank you. Changing the background colors to the greens/yellows/creams certainly helps the ribbon POP! Some people actually believed it was a p ainting, not a quilt!

I love this quilt!!! Is there a pattern for it somewhere?
hobbyhorse answered:
It is called Ribbon of Hope, and I got it from our local quilt shop. I think you can google it also. I did, however, change the color scheme from all pinks to the greens/yellows/orange tones to make it more gender neutral. There are more types of cancer than breast cancer, and each one has a color!
