Around the Block | Round Robin Quilt Block 11

I met Jen last year during quilt market.  In fact we had roomed together for a couple of days.  She is one talented gal.  She has a great eye for color and design.

In addition to designing patterns, she is also the founder of Sew South Retreat.  A 2 day sewing retreat with classes, swaps, and more.  I have heard awesome things about it!

For her quilt block she has chosen to share a ribbon star design.

What she says about her quilt block~

I love star blocks and tend to be drawn to clean lines and blocks with patterns that let the fabric shine. I also love using solids in my sewing and the bold colors of this block really stand out against the sharp points of the Ribbon Star.   She is also showing you a quick way to sew half square triangles.

This is part of the Round Robin Quilt Along Series-– for previous blocks and for theschedule of designers….clickety click here.

  1. That is some super-accurate cutting and stitching. I’m still not confident enough in my accuracy to tackle quilting, but when I do, this sort of pattern will be top of my list.
