Magic Ribbons finished




Each evening this past week I spent 'TV time' hand sewing the binding on my Magic Ribbons quilt. This was another mystery quilt designed by Dorothy Young. Had I known what the finished product would look like, I would have had less contrast between the 'front' and 'back' sides of the ribbons, but then it wouldn't have been a mystery. The 'back' of the green ribbon seems white in the photo, but is actually a celery color. The mustard/gold ribbon has a pale yellow 'back'. It would have been better if those light colors were not quite so light. Overall, I like it and am happy with it. The photos show the whole quilt (which is queen size), a close up of the fabrics and the back with the quilting (designed by Ellen Munnich of Munnich Designs).

That makes a UFO finish. I have also started the next "Christmas gift quilt" and have about half of the blocks completed.
