CRAZY QUILT PROGRESS - SILK RIBBON FINISHED

Only two more tasks to learn on my Crazy Quilt Beginners Class - it has been a lot of fun learning the Silk Ribbon Flowers.

Here's Task #9 - pretty little blue flowers.  These flowers are made by using a 2mm Silk Ribbon and making a french knot and then piercing the needle in and out along the ribbon creating a fold, until you take the needle back through the material near where you came up.

The trick is not to pull the ribbon too tight or you end up with a small mess.

Task #10 - We completed the rose climbing vine and flowers.  The leaves are made with 2mm ribbon and a japanese stab stitch.  Before you stab the end of the ribbon, you create a small rise by lifting the ribbon over something, I used a crotchet hook.  This makes the leave rise up and not lay flat giving more dimension to the work.

The Roses are made again using 2mm ribbon and  a French Knot together with three Flystitches.

We learnt three different types of roses and each one gives a different look.  Next task is to put on all the beading and charms.
