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:

CUTTING INSTRUCTIONS:

  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:

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!
