Ribbon Star
Ribbon Star

I had a number of requests to do the Friendship Star this month, but since it has already been done...I found a variation of the block to do for this month.

We will be using 4 colors in this block: white, medium/dark blue, light/medium green and a blue/white print. We will be making this one 12" finished.

Sample Quilt Layouts

You need to cut as follows:

  1. White: cut 1 4-1/2" square
  2. Medium/Dark Blue: 2 5" squares
  3. Light/Medium Green: 4 5" squares
  4. Blue/White Print: 2 5" squares

Sewing Instructions:

  1. Mark diagonal on the wrong side of 2 5" squares of green; matching right sides together with 5" square of blue...stitch 1/4" to either side of diagonal mark; cut on diagonal and press toward blue; square up to 4-1/2".

  2. Mark diagonal on the wrong side of 2 5" squares of green; matching right sides together with 5" square of print...stitch 1/4" to either side of diagonal mark; cut on diagonal and press toward green; square up to 4-1/2".

  3. Creating 2 rows: attach a half-square triangle from step#2 to either side of a half-square triangle from step#1; press toward corner units.

  4. Attach last 2 half-square triangles from step#1 to either side of 4-1/2" square of white; press seams toward white.

  5. Attach rows from step#3 to either side of rows from step#4 to create block as shown below.
  6. IMPORTANT: Please square up your finished block to be sure it is 12-1/2". If it is larger or smaller, check your seams and redo if necessary. If you do not check your measurements, your block may not join properly with other blocks easily to create a finished quilt.


This is what your block might look like.
