This month’s project began life as a wall hanging, but the pattern was so bright and happy feeling that I kept going and made a patchwork cot quilt – or it could be a lap quilt.  The finished size is 38″ by 59″.  The quilt block is called ribbon weave.

 

Fabric requirements

dark blue and yellow: 1 yard, light blue 1/2 yard, patterned fabric 3/4 yard

backing and wadding:  rectangle 41″ by 62″ of each

Making the ribbon weave quilt blocks

You will need fifteen ribbon weave quilt blocks and for each one you will need to cut:

4.1/2″ squares:  one patterned

4.7/8″ squares:  two each of dark blue and light blue, four yellow

Make half square triangles

Make half square triangles with the 4.7/8″ squares.  Place two squares with right sides together and mark a line along the diagonal.  Sew a 1/4″ seam either side of the marked line and cut along the line to produce two half square triangle units.  Make these with yellow/dark blue and with yellow/light blue.

Lay the squares out in three rows of three.  The patterned square is in the centre and the dark blue/yellow half square triangles form a ribbon across two corners while the light blue/yellow half square triangles form a ribbon across the other two corners.

Sew the squares together across the rows and then sew the rows together.  Make fifteen of the ribbon weave quilt blocks.  Press.

Sew the quilt blocks together in five rows of three.  Keep an eye out to make sure that you keep the ribbon weave going – the blocks must all be placed the same and not rotated at all.

I have used 2.1/2″ strips of patterned fabric for the quilt border.  Cut two lengths of 36.1/2″ and sew them to the top and bottom of the quilt.  Cut two lengths of 64.1/2″ and sew them to the sides of the quilt.

The ribbon weave quilt top is now complete and ready for layering, quilting and binding.  Full details of these steps are in the beginner quilting section.
