New Friday Tutorial: The Ribbon Star Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

ribbon star pinnable

This Ribbon Star Quilt pattern is just so fun and you won’t believe how easily it all comes together! If you’ve ever made a log cabin block, the process is nearly the same… you just snowball two of the corners and you have a brand new block that makes a beautiful star when you put them together!


Isn’t it so cute? There are so many things you could do with this pattern using different styles of fabrics and we can’t wait to see what you create!

Picking Up Where I Left Off from Patchwork Sampler Blog

It has been a long time since I’ve done ANY sewing.  It was the summer of walking and walk we did, but now it’s time to get back to business.

When my husband Jim retired in July, he had never taken more than one week of vacation at a time so we planned a trip to change take advantage of his new found leisure time. We hiked England’s Coast to Coast path. To prepare for walking 10-18 miles a day, we walked all summer long.  By the time we left on September 16, we were regularly walking ...

DWM: Sweet and Simple from Patchwork Sampler Blog

My big design wall news is that I actually (finally!) have a design wall.  In all my years of quilting I’ve always made do with whatever flat surface was available…mostly the floor.  I have a small piece of batting hung in front of the fabric storage cupboards in my sewing room but it’s kind of a pain because it only holds a few blocks at a time and I have to move it every time I need to get in the cupboards.  The house we live in has never been my dream house and it has small ...

WIP Wednesday: Island Chain from Patchwork Sampler Blog

This quilt really taxed my brain.  The units for this quilt are super simple and I thought it would be a piece of cake to put together but it was a struggle.  After working on the layout for an hour and a half this is what I had-several holes and chains that didn’t link.

Island Chain layout


Things just weren’t working out and even with using the diagram in the book and my fabric key I couldn’t figure out the layout.  Finally I abandoned it and regrouped.  Things worked out better the second time and now I’m ready to ...

Jelly Roll Quilt - Finished! from The Nifty Stitcher

I got my jelly roll quilt finished.
its gone from this....

to this.........

It took a while, but I made all the petals and leaves separately and sewed them down whilst the quilt was still on the frame.
I stitched the Suffolk puffs down by hand.

 I'm pretty pleased with my quilting here.  It was a challenge to get the feathers to snake around the center section and get them to fit into the space. I've not done that before. I had to roll the quilt back and forth - a lot.

I will be entering this into ...
