One of a set of twelve inch patchwork blocks available as downloads with full instructions.
These can just be used to practice new techniques, made into bags or cushions or could be combined into a Sampler Quilt.
This pretty “Ribbon Star” block is a good skill builder, as it includes a Square-in-a-Square unit, and Flying Geese units.
In this six page download pattern, Carolyn Gibbs gives you full construction details, including quick piecing methods and all the tips you need to get a really good result.
Try it out, using any three colours (Dark, Medium and Light) of your choice.
