Ribbon Star Redux

You might remember the drama of the first Ribbon Star. You also might remember that I made the star over using half square triangles rather than parallelograms.

I have to admit that I never really liked the new version, which you can see on the right of the above picture. I used it, because I had no choice, but I didn’t really like that particular lavender fabric.

Finally, I decided that I would remake the first block. The first block had a lot of problems, not the least of which was that the parts were a variety of different sizes. I unsewed all the squares, rearranged some of the colors and resewed them so that the block, basically, fit together. Many of the seam allowances are so far short of 1/4″ that I really worry about their integrity.

Still I am really happy that I get to use the original version of the block.
