Oh, My Stars! Block #12 Ribbon Star

Good morning and Welcome back to Oh, My Stars!

I am a little late in posting this weekend and my apologies.  Once again, work has been hectic and long and I didn’t get all that I wanted to done yesterday!

The next block in our series is the Ribbon Star.  I looked for it in quilterscache.com but it is not listed there, unless it’s under another name that I am not aware of.  Anyway, the block should measure 6.5 inches squared and you will need 3 fabrics for this block, a light for the center, a medium for the background and a darker fabric for the star.

Here are the colors that I chose:



  1.  From the light color, for the center, you will need to cut four 2 3/8 squares, cut diagonally to give 4 half triangles.

  2. From the dark color, you will need to cut 6 2 3/8 inch squares, cut on the diagonal for a total of 12 triangles.

  3. From the medium color, you will need to cut four 2 inch squares for the outside corners.

  4. Also from the medium color, you will need to cut four 2 3/8 inch squares, cut diagonally to give 8 triangles.


Here is what you will need after cutting:




This is the block before being completely  sewn together:


Sewing Hints:   You can make this block very easily by making half square triangles.  

Here is one of my finished blocks:


Remember, you will need to make 2 of these blocks.

I will be posting 3 more blocks later today!  Thank you for playing along! 


About cozyquilts

Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Donna. My hubby is retired and I am still working from home. I have twin daughters and am blessed with 4 grandchildren. We are owned by 4 cats that love to supervise and are very nosy. I have been quilting since 1996. In addition to making quilts for my family and friends, I also make charity quilts for Marjoree Mason Center and Valley Children's Hospital. Marjoree Mason Center is a local organization here that helps and supports battered and abused women and children get out of abusive relationships. Every Christmas I make several baby quilts for the women, along with a small stuffed animal. Valley Children's Hospital is a new venture for me that just started this year. Every month or so I drop off a couple of quilts along with a small toy, for the children. I use a lot of bright, fun fabrics to help cheer them up. I do special order quilts but please be advised in advance as I work full-time in addition to quilting, I only do a few during the year. Also, it may take up to 6 months to a year to completely finish a quilt as my sewing time is limited. I only do applique or patchwork and will incorporate machine embroidery into my patterns, when requested. Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you and friends again soon.
