Sampler Quilt 2011 - Week 10 - Ribbon Star

 The Ribbon Star block is made with half square triangle units and squares. There are a variety of ways to make a half square triangle unit - from squares, strips or using templates and more. To make the strip cutting widths all the same, I'm going to use the strip method and cutting using a side right triangle ruler. You can make other projects using the fabric instruction calculator at my website.
