Freshly Pieced for the Ribbon Star block. The block has way more pieces that I typically will handle (I think I counted 49 pieces, I usually don't look at blocks with more than 5- I like a quick finish!) but the end result was so worth all the extra pieces. I also need to give some Major props to Lee for the awesome tutorial- all those pieces and I NEVER used the seam ripper!! Unheard of! (My 5 piece blocks normally need a seam ripper, lol!). She literally showed you how to lay out the pieces so that you would not get confused.
As for the quilting, I am in love. Inside the start I did a little dot-to-do quilting a la Angela Walters and it came out exactly how I envisioned it would- looking like a snowflake inside the star. Perfect for this Christmasy pillow. Inside the green ribbons I quilted a swirl and in the red just a simple stipple- hoping it would give the feeling of snow floating down.
And, though it is not the best photo, it only feels appropriate to show a photo of the pillow on my couch with the Christmas tree in the background-
