WIP - Christmas Ribbons

Now that the pebble quilting is wrapped up and the Weekender bag is finnnnnallllllyyyy finished, I am back to piecing a quilt using Kona Ash and Basic Grey's Jovial (it's been in my stash for a year). I'm using the Christmas Ribbons pattern from Scrap Basket Surprises by Kim Brackett.

Christmas Ribbons - Rows 1-4
I must've miscounted when I was cutting because I seem to be short by a few units! No worries, there were a few unused strips and there's plenty of ash around! I laid out the first few rows to see how it would come together.
Digital Christmas Ribbons!
And I used my amateur photoshop skills in conjunction with my master AutoCAD skills to make a cute little grid pattern to follow while piecing!

For the rest of the week, I will be attending a conference in Hershey, PA! It's times like these when I wish I wasn't a chocolate snob. Oh well, not pigging out on chocolate is good for the waistline :) The Weekender bag is packed with my Groove quilt and some other things - hopefully I get some quiet time to finish up the binding!

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out all the other great WIPs over at Freshly Pieced!
