3D Silk Ribbon Flowers

The hand cut bias silk ribbon was a satisfactory solution to my time crunch - needing to get some flowers in the foreground of this quilt and up against a deadline.

The ribbon frayed a little at the edges, but I don't think it detracts too much from the effect. I thought I would be embroidering stems and leaves, but now I am not sure it is necessary.

love your solution with the ribbon flowers - they are a nice touch.
Now you've got me thinking about how I can dye and use habotai silk to embellish some of my work.
