I've heard from quite a few people wanting to know about puffy ribbon herringbone....so here is how I do it!
To surround each heart in the 9 blocks in "Herringbone Hearts", I used 5.5 yards of ribbon to stitch the 40" around each heart. Let's see.....that is 360 inches stitched! Right as I was finishing up the last one, I took some photos to show you.
(By the way, back of the block has some fusible knit interfacing on it. I always interface my blocks before I stitch on them.)
Ah..... my hands need a rest.
Now to join all the blocks together. And yes, there will be herringbone over the blocks' seams where they've been sewn together, but not in ribbon, thank goodness. Stitching with thread will feel like a breeze!
