A Brand New Block That Makes A Star
If you love log cabin quilts, this is a new take on the Ribbon Star. Almost the entire quilt top is made using 2 1/2″ strips, including the sashings and cornerstones. Super easy using a jelly roll, or go scrappy using up leftovers.
A very basic block that’s ideal for beginning quilters, and initially was sewn into a star from a 4-patch block that uses half-square triangles. Two tails at the end indicate a ribbon. Jenny Doans new Ribbon block design is based similar to building a log cabin block using 2 1/2 inch strips! The feature quilt was made using one jelly roll in prints, and one in solids.
To make the blocks, snowball two of the corners and you have a brand new block that makes a beautiful star when you put them together. Super easy and a great beginner block.
The versatile block provides so many things you could do with this pattern using different styles of fabrics.
The pattern requires 2 1/2″ strips which can be cut from mens shirts. It looks great in plaids!
20 beautiful blocks, put together with sashing and cornerstoners, makes a finished 68″ x 82″ quilt. The entire quilt is made with just 2 jelly rolls, plus yardage for the border and binding. A step by step video shows how easy it is to construct the blocks, which becomes a breathtaking Ribbon Star quilt!
