Side Setting Squares for A Ribbon Runs Through It

 Hello Everyone,

I've had a lot of questions about this block, so I thought it best to put a tutorial together for it.  This is an easy block as long as you follow the directions paying close attention to the pressing directions on the Block Layout Sheet.



Begin by laying all of the pieces out like this or on your block layout sheet. Stitch them together in sections as indicated in the pattern directions.


Stitch the sections together in rows.

Then stitch the rows together.

The trimming part seems to be causing the most confusion.  I really zoomed in on this image so you can see where to trim.  You need to trim here so when you stitch on the pink inner border, you don't lose your points.

I hope this tutorial answers your questions.

Soon,
Lynn

  1. Yes, this is so helpful. Can you tell me what the three sides of the triangle setting block should measure once it is sewn and trimmed? I am not finding any measurements for this block finished.
    Thank you so much for tutorial on this. It has been so helpful.
    Have a great day

      You can download the project from Google Docs which is easy to print out. Thank you for asking.

    2. Information has been left out! I keep looking at the pattern and searching online for the cornerstone....is it a square or is it a quarter square block? Someone please answer me!

    3. Dear Anonymous,
      I'm sorry you are having an issue with the pattern which I think is a difference in terminology. On page 19, it says to cut 25
      3-1/2" x 3-1/2" sashing posts which is piece D. If you look at the layout on page 27, you will see the location of piece D. I hope this answers your question. Please let me know if you did not receive page 19.

I love, love, love it, but I will never do another with sooooooo many little tiny pieces, lol My husband want to know when I am going to start another. He is very supportive of my little hobby. Again, Thank You.

    1. Dear Puff,
      Thank you so much for your sweet comment. You've created an heirloom with all of those tiny pieces, and it makes me so happy that you love it. It's great to have a husband who supports your hobby. I'm sure he appreciates your efforts.

  7. I just finished the top of quilt. I am new to quilting and this is only my second quilt. my first one is with jelly roll so a lot of learning curves. LOL but i took this on. It is far from perfect, lost a lot of points, squaring it up. but i love it! and learned so much. Your tutorials made it easy to get through the blocks and was able to figure the rest out. I am going to try the other small one you linked for left overs. Thank you
