Pattern Description:

This paper pieced quilt block pattern makes a 12" finished size block, readily resizable to any size you need using the enlargement / reductions percentages chart included. The foundation piecing sections are clearly labeled, and easy-to-follow directions will guide you in sewing the block.

Inspired by the interwoven ribbon designs of Moorish architecture and Celtic art, the Moorish Ribbon Star quit block is considerably easier to sew than it might look.

Achieve a pretty twisted ribbon look by choosing two values within the same hue for each of the two four-pointed stars. Using 1, 2 or 3 background colors yields different effects, too. Experiment with your colored pencils on the coloring page of block line drawings to see what variations you like best.

This pattern is for quilters with prior experience in paper piecing, and no beginner's tutorial is included. See my website links page for several on-line ones I highly recommend http://piecebynumber.com/links/
