Making and Wrapping - Christmas in July Day 2

Today's pattern giveaway is for Ribbon and Wrap - 2 block sizes and 3 patterns

I was inspired to use up my little Christmas selvages and created this quilt. It only takes 2 fat quarters and the selvage strips to make.  The name 'ribbon & wrap' came when I alternated the direction of every other block - I thought it looked like wrapping a present with a wide ribbon.

Of course you could make the block bigger and make one into a pillow cover - or more to make a whole quilt!

After I made the pillow on the right, I still had some selvages left so I made 3 small blocks into a runner. I made it to fit a little ledge my daughter has on her dresser. (Of course I made a quilt to go with it, but it's not quilted yet!)

Making this pattern inspired me to put together this tutorial on making selvage fabric.

You can get a copy of it here (it's free!) How to Make Selvage Fabric

I've used this tutorial to make this bag a couple of times. I think it is super cute and I love hexies. I wonder what it would look like in Christmas fabrics...
