New Ribbon! and a contest!

We just received more new ribbons from Renaissance Ribbons,
their website is   here
Aren't they amazing?
Black and white zebra
Amy Butler, mosaic

Amy Butler, Blue on Gray Sari Petal
Anna Maria Horner, Spinning wheel, coral and cream
Gold tape with Black edges
Antique Gold metallic tape
Ivory and Gold Greek Key

Kaffe Fassett, Guinea Flower on Black and white
Kaffe Fassett, Plum and Orange Kite tail
Kaffe Fassett, Orange and Purple palm fan
Kaffe Fassett, blue and purple phase stripes
plus, there are 17 other ribbons that came a couple of weeks ago from Renaissance as well! 
It was really difficult to choose which ribbons to order.  Much harder than to order fabric.  There were so many options, and it was hard to envisage how each one could be useful in a project. 

In December, I wrote a post on all the ribbon inspirations that I acquired at their booth at Quilt Market in Houston,   here

Now, I am anxious to put some of these ideas into practice.

We should have a contest!  At the store, for using ribbons in a project!  This is a new idea-- I need help brainstorming for this contest, so all input is welcomed! ( including ideas on prizes, categories, parameters, etc,)


  1. I adore the ribbon Michelle! There was one wide one with embroidery that had gold and some deep wines in it. I wanted it for an empire waist band... but it was gone when I looked last week. I'll have to look again.

    I wonder if you know the one.

    : ))

  2. Hmmm… This could be a really interesting idea! Categories could include: best use of ribbon from someone else's pattern, design or tutorial; best original design using ribbon; best embellishment; and best new idea? The contest sounds like fun, though!
