This weeks star is super easy. The entire block is made of half square triangles. It’s called the Ribbon Star. I’ve seen this star with all four corners the same fabric or four different fabrics. I decided to use two fabrics, because of what I had to choose from. The blue and yellow are my brightest fabrics and everything else I auditioned faded in comparison. So, you can decide which version works best with your fabric selection and make that version. I also added some corner triangles for a little more variety.
Cutting and Fabric
Fabric 1 – Background – (8) 4 in. squares
Fabric 2 and 3 – Yellow and Blue – (3) 4 in. squares of each
Fabric 4 – Grey – (2) 4 in. squares
**Cut all squares once diagonally
Step 1 (For some reason I don’t have many pictures of making this block. Either I forgot or I thought it was easy enough that pictures weren’t needed. I truly don’t remember what I was thinking. Anyway… I don’t think many are needed because it is only half square triangles sewn together. But, just in case you were wondering…..)
Lay out your triangles into ribbon star block.
Sew your half square triangles together to make squares. Press open and trim to 3 1/2 in.
Sew squares into rows. Press. Then sew rows together for finished block. You’re done with block 5! (Told you it was easy.)
