OUT: 1/4 yard for show ribbon
Linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times; check out everyone else's stash management efforts over there.
Someone asked, so here's the scoop about the show ribbons:
They're all built using old computer CDs. Everyone is free to make theirs as creative as they like. Some have tiny piecing, exquisite thread work, applique, etc. Some are works of art in themselves. Only the first place (blue) and best of show (purple) get ruffles. I chose red so I wouldn't have to deal with a ruffle.
The piping is hand-sewn around the edge, with a little help from glue basting. The ribbons are glued to the back of the front disc.
The back disc is covered in the same way in the same floral print, but it's mounted smooth side out (gathers sandwiched inside). I glued the back disc onto the back of the front disc, and clamped the whole thing until it dried.
A ribbon is attached to the back for pinning the award to the quilt.
