Faith Jones of Fresh Lemon Quilts has put together a helpful tutorial (with photos) for making an adorable 12″ square “Ribbon Star” block using half-square triangles. You’ll need four primary fabrics along with your white background.
Go to the quilt block tutorial for measurements and cutting instructions.
And if you like this block, you’ll want to sew the other four blocks from her “Solstice Stars” series. She shows you how to make the swirling star, the star of mystery, the two color star, and one she calls “another” star. Faith also shows you some possible quilt layouts using these blocks. Have fun!
