Another Side Excursion

My Indigo Hexies are still on track, but I have been tempted to take another side trip into the land of silk ribbon embroidery.  I was so dazzled by my friend Kim's artistry in this little fan block that I decided to take a class at City Quilter from favorite teacher Judy Doenias.  I learned many tricks that aren't available in most books, so I am off and running (in my rocking chair) with these lovely stitches.   I will post a photo when I have mastered the technique.


  1. I have also been intrigued by silk ribbon embroidery. This piece is beautiful. I'm looking forward to seeing yours!

  2. I too look forward to seeing what you do with this!

  3. You're on your way! Wish I had some time to break out the ribbon and stitch with you. I love the luster and the texture from the silk---it also fills up the space faster :)

    1. Not as easy as it looks, but simply gorgeous when done well!!
