I sewed the final border on my Ribbon Candy Top last night! A finish!!! This is my version of Bonnie Hunter's Smith Mountain. I used a few more colors (hers is brown and blue) and I changed up the border so I could use the mountain of half square triangles that I had made (over-made?) The quilt still needs a good pressing but that will have to wait until after the holidays. (I ordered backing fabric for it from Hancock's of Paducah who is having a great sale right now! Good time to get backings....)
Today I also picked up a box of the ribbon candy! I think I by I buy these more for the memory than the candy itself. Don't get me wrong they taste good but they are a bit dangerous...sharp edged candy. Who thought that was a good idea?!
I can remember Sister Rudolph (yes that was her name!) my 3rd grade teacher, kept a box in her desk for days when students did really well or just needed a pick-me-up. She would break off a small piece of ribbon and we would eat them very carefully! I thought they box of ribbons was beautiful.
