had some feathers around and it seemed to fit this piece… the magnetic clasps are silver and quite handsome.
a shop in Tokyo Ginza had requested an upscale braided cording. they came out pretty well. this was a new way for me to use the ribbon.
So far, I have only used the borealis colorways on these. You can clip on a magnetic broach as shown above, or wear it alone.
I spent all day yesterday prepping for a class and this morning teaching it. Forgot the camera so no photos but a good time was had by all. The best part is when everyone discovers how much they like what they made. Even if they were dubious along the way, they were pleased in the end and have plans to do more. Thanks to all for taking the class and hope to see you again sometime!
I am finally moving the ribbon by the yard into the bigcartel shop. This is something I had been wanting to do for some time. I think it will be much easier to order that way. So far, only about 20 colors are there in this listing (use the drop down menu to select colors) but all the colors are well pictured which is a big improvement over the old etsy listing. Also no listing fees. Eventually I will get up around 40 of the colors there. here are the color cards as they appear in the shop-
Todays class at convergence was the impetus for finally getting this done. Now, students can much more easily order colors using the drop down menu.
A few more things were made for the upcoming Long Beach Quilt Show-
bits of this-n-that…
