      Also I might suggest a book called Scarlet Ribbons that you can order through either Amazon or Crazy Crow ...I have that book and it has some wonderful pics and detailed descriptions of how to do both applique and cut and fold.

            You can get the basic instructions for free at your local library by looking up the books in the quilting section. Find ones that discuss applique. The basic methods are the same although the fabrics and sewing stitches can be different in ribbonwork. For example, most quilters will fold under the raw edges of their applique pieces while many ribbonworkers will not unless they are doing certain kinds of geometric designs. For floral and other ribbon designs you can do the folding if you wish, that is how it was originally done but many of us don't have the time or patience for that and so prefer to stitch over the raw edges with machine zigzag stitching. Practice with different kinds of fabric, stabilizers and stitching. There is more than one way to do ribbonwork so experiment to see what works well for you. Have fun!
