My day on the Splendid Sampler!

WooHoo!!!! Party!!!! Today is the day my block is released from The Splendid Sampler 2 book!

Turn to page 126 and start stitching!

I named my block Ticker Tape because of the way I plan to quilt it -- with ribbons!  Ribbon candy quilting makes me so happy that I think of parades and parties and celebrations:

As a machine quilting teacher, I plan the quilting as I'm piecing the quilt.  I will only stitch in the background of the block, leaving the pretty fabrics unquilted and puffy:

Do you like ribbon candy quilting as much as I do?

You can learn to quilt ribbon candy quilting in my Craftsy Class or by following one of my new stencils.  Ribbon candy quilting is featured in several of my YouTube videos.
