Silk Cigar Ribbon Quilt Inspiration


This antique silk cigar ribbon quilt is offered for sale by Laura Fisher Quilts in NYC for $4,500. But are you thinking what I'm thinking? I'm seeing a selvage quilt design in here!

This is my version of a silk cigar ribbon sort of quilt. It's one of the quilts in my book "Quilts from the Selvage Edge." I'll be leading a workshop in CT showing how to make this quilt.

Do tell us more about the Workshop.
When? where?
this is really a lovely piece, imagine how long it took to save those ribbons! The ribbons were just wrapped around the box and not around each cigar right?

Happy Sewing

We need to figure out how to get you to Des Moines, Iowa, so you can lead US in making a selvage cigar-wrapper quilt!
