Moda Blockheads II


After glancing at my phone this morning to check this blog post, I had this feeling that something about my Ribbon Star didn't look quite right. While computer generating the block, I had turned all the half squares. I like the "new" design, too, but don't let it confuse you. This is the correct block. It really does look like a star. The instructions are correct. Happy Wednesday!

Block #40 - Ribbon Star by Lynne Hagmeier

I can't believe we're on the last round of 13 designers & blocks counting down to 52. I'll have to find something new to look forward to on Wednesdays.

Ribbon Star is my last block for the Blockheads II series. I chose this block because it looks difficult, but is simple to piece. The story of my quilting life. With four star points, I deviated from my strict red/tan/navy color scheme for this project and incorporated a little green, too. The fabrics used here are from my new On Meadowlark Pond collection, due in quilt shops next month. Follow my blog for all the new quilts & patterns arriving soon.

Thanks to everyone for following us through another year of Moda Blockheads. I can't wait to see the quilts on Facebook. Check out the other 12 designers' blocks this week.


  1. I LOVE this block! I find it interesting that you chose to put your points together and that makes the block so different! I can hardly wait for your new fabric to get to my LQS.

  2. I like the change of the points from the pattern. Was that done by reversing the direction of step 3?

    1. Yes. I was concerned about getting the fabrics in the right place and totally missed the triangles! Glad you like it both ways.

  3. I'm with you -- love the turned-around HSTs. Makes a really cool star!
