100 Details in 100 Days...Ribbon and beads

Day 14 of 100 details in 100 days,
Sharon has posted a simple way to use ribbon and beads on a block.
On my Victorian fan quilt, I added this ribbon bow to fill in a space that needed something simple as this..

And I also use ribbon a lot on baskets of flowers like this one...
I like to hold down the ribbon in place with French knots...Tiny beads are also a great way to add sparkle and keep ribbon bows in place.
Twisting the ribbon tails adds to it's appeal..

  1. Ohhh Julia, another fascination for me ... (Nothing new with your lovely embroidery/creations) I love the way you have embroidered around the silk print, but how do you put the print on, do you do a small tuck hem and sew, or?? I've been using some iron on fixative, but I'm not happy with the results .. thus why I try and incorporate the picture into the actual block, I find it easier... if I hand sew some of my seams are a little bulky, any hints you can give me Julia?
