Ribbon Star

The Ribbon Star is a lovely, and easy, pattern for a quilt. Make it as big or small as you want by hand or machine. Play with colour placement as well.

The pattern for this little quilt can be found on the website. If I’d had more of the border fabric I could have ‘fussy cut’ it so that the flowers were all the right way up. But I didn’t.

Here’s a photo of another one I made a few years earlier to give you an idea of different colours.

Sorry its bit blurry – I had to take a photo in the shop where it is currently on display, and as it is pinned to the ceiling this wasn’t easy!

The pink squares are heavily quilted in a purple thread to change their colour – they were just not the right pink to go with the border I realised far too late.
