Through the ages, ribbons have been a source of delight. Luxurious, colorful, sensuous ribbons raise our spirits and make our hearts beat just a tiny bit faster. Nothing signals treasures within like a prettily wrapped package and the fancier the ribbon, the greater the anticipation of delightful surprise!
Take any Crazy Quilt or other
project up a notch or two by incorporating ribbons in dozens of ways –
couching, ruching, flowers, stems and leaves, bows – the list goes on
and on! Perhaps not quite as obviously festive as ribbon but still
providing us with a multitude of opportunities for creative expression,
there is an abundance of other trims available. I challenge you to think
about rickrack, bias tape, cord, fringe, doilies and lace without
feeling your creative urges spring to life! Old handkerchiefs or special
fabrics, such as lamé, ultrasuede or embossed velvet are other
materials that can add that special something to any project. The
possibilities are so limitless that they boggle the mind.
