Tandem Rally Quilt

grammypMarch 7, 2013

I have finished the top for the quilt to give away at our tandem rally in April. It has lots of room for everyone to sign (if the winner wants it signed). Hopefully it will go in the frame tonight and I can get it quilted next week.

Beautiful! I like that you kept the colors consistent so it looks like woven ribbons.

Great prize! I'd be willing to bet that the signing will be a big hit too. Nice work.

Love the ribbon effect.
One question. If folks are going to sign in the white spaces, will you keep the quilting away from there, or can they sign over quilting?

Thanks everyone, I love these strip quilts. I'm glad you could tell it was supposed to be ribbons.

Theresa, I am going to simply stitch in the ditch so it will keep it's woven ribbon look. Then they can simply sign the center. The blocks are 6 inches and a 4 inch border, so it should be quilted close enough.
