Dancing Ribbons Quilt Along

This 12″ x 12″ miniature quilt has captured a lot of imaginations since its release in September 2010. And now, almost a decade later, we’re celebrating this fun project with a 4-week quilt along!

What to Expect
This quilt along features step-by-step tutorials each week, inspiration from ten years of Dancing Ribbons projects, and a community of quilters coming together to make this project.
This is an intermediate project which features foundation paper piecing, curved piecing, and applique techniques. We will have helpful guides at each step to help you with the different techniques.
We’ll also have tips and inspiration along the way for choosing fabrics, making design choices, and ways to use the Dancing Ribbons project beyond as a mini quilt.
We’ll go into fabric requirements in more detail next week. Until then, here’s a suggested supplies list of what else you’ll need to make Dancing Ribbons.
Printer for printing patterns
Sewing thread (the same color as background fabric)
Microtex Sharp machine needles
Small cutting mat
Small ruler for trimming
Large Ruler for measuring
Karen K. Buckley Scissors
Fabric Glue Pen
Wooly felted ironing mat
