I had forgotten how fast and easy this quilt block went together. I don't remember how I found the block design. Who knows? I could have seen it in a quilt shop finished and on display. Or I could have seen a picture. I love the creation aspect of seeing and then going to graph paper, figuring out the math, and drawing it out. I did find out from one of the ladies in the 30-Block Exchange that the name is Woven Ribbon. I love the name and I love my finished block.
I first made the block in a Blanket of Hope, our quilt group from church. I have a drawing of part of it at the bottom so don't forget to check it out.
One of the reasons the block goes together so quickly and easy is because the block is actually four smaller blocks sewn together and you only have to match two seams one time - when you sew the center of the block.
HOW TO MAKE A WOVEN RIBBON BLOCK
(using a 1/4" seam all strips cut 3.5" wide)
You will need 4 color prints and one white.
SEWING & PRESSING:
Step 1 - Sew the squares together first.
Press both the underside and
top side seam away from the white.
Check the twozie with a 3.5" ruler and trim any access off.
Place twozies back in place with strips.
Check and trim if necessary to a 6.5" square.
Place back in place for block.
Step 5 - Trim block down to 12.5" and you are finished.
