A Versatile Quilt For Any Time Of Year

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.
