This is a pieced block ~ from our Gold Fabric Pack.
I hand-pieced this block while vending at last week's quilt show. I used RibbonSmyth hand-dyed vintage rayon tape stitched among the brown leaf trim. The ribbon colorway is "Spring" and it is gorgeous; dyed with all my favorite vintage shades. I overdye rayon tape colors as I prefer the look over dyeing white ribbon. I have several hundred rolls waiting to be dyed. I never know what the ribbon will look like until it has dried and been ironed. Then the colors "pop". I dyed the ribbon in shades of gold, mauve, platinum. It's a dream to use for embellishing. The ribbon can be manipulated to do absolutely anything. Above the folded ribbon rose, I added ruched petals. Can't wait to see how this block will look when finished. Right now it's at the top of a heap of WIP's! The block size is 11"x14".
