Colored Ribbons

I am PUBLISHED!!! I am so happy that I can now share this!!! Remember when I made this post?
I complained how long it took me to guilt  this....43 hours....
Well this is what it made....
  I present Colored Ribbons!! One day while I was visiting my Mom last year, I just created a block and just started to fill in....and this is what it became!
 This is the back of the quilt. I changed thread color to match the color of the block.
 This quilt and instructions appeared in "The Quilt Pattern Magazine". They contacted me and said that they were creating a new online quilt magazine and needed designers and asked for me to submit something.
 At first they weren't going to be able to pay designers at all, but as the magazine got more advertising they said they could now pay their designers. I am not sure of the amount yet or what it depends on, but if you are interested I will let you know.
 This is about 90"x90". So a nice queen size quilt, although it's not really easy to keep it tucked in! (We have a really tall footboard).
 Can you see why it took me 43 hours to quilt it? It's actually a really simple quilt design, the block is just a maverick star/sawtooth star block!
 I used scrap fabric (okay so I went and bought fabric for this quilt) but it's designed to be made with scrap fabric that you have.
This is my very first colored quilt that I have made, so I hope you all enjoy it! I am planning on making one with white background....but I personally love the black...just makes all of the colors POP!

It's an interesting approach. I commonly see unexceptional views on the subject but yours it's written in a pretty unusual fashion. Surely, I will revisit your website for additional info.
