Do you recognize the designer of this triangle quilt?

Ribbon Quilt from Pinterest

Do you recognize the designer of this quilt? I would love to know who came up with this simple, clever design.

I found the image on Pinterest, but the link was broken and there is no “watermark” indicating the source. (I put “inklingo” somewhere on most of my illustrations and photos, just in case someone pins without mentioning Inklingo.)


Easy Ribbon Quilt blocks

I was especially excited when I realized you can make this “ribbon quilt” with the shapes in the FREE Diamond/Triangle/Square shape collection.

With the free shapes, each block is 1.86 x 1.86 inches.

The whole design uses Quarter Square Triangles (QST with straight grain on the long side) and Half Square Triangles (HST with straight grain on the two short sides).

The free shape collection includes illustrations to show you how much fabric you need but this would be a fabulous way to use scraps too, don’t you think?


Inklingo - Print shapes with any ordinary Inkjet printer.

The blocks are easy to sew by hand or by machine when you print the shapes on fabric with Inklingo. (Triangle Tips, free PDF, under the Machine Piecing tab on

No measuring—a line to cut on—a line to sew on. Easy peasy!


Easy Ribbon Quilt

It just depends on clever color placement and rotating the blocks 180 degrees.

When the sewing is this easy, you can spend more time playing with color.


Inklingo Ribbon Baby Quilt

Wouldn’t this make a pretty baby quilt? Quick and easy and impressive!

Play with the fabrics in your stash to find an attractive combination.


With LeMoyne Star 6 inch, each block is 2.5 x 2.5 inches.

With LeMoyne Star 9 inch, each block is 3.73 x 3.73 inches.

MANY other sizes can be made with Inklingo using matching sizes of QST and HST in Inklingo QST 00B and Inklingo HST 00B.

You can see all of the available sizes of QST and HST in the Inklingo Index of Shapes under the Support & Goodies tab on

We’re trying to train the chipmunks to ring the bell. Long story. LOL We post photos every day on the Inklingo Facebook Page, and you don’t have to have a FB account to see what we post there.

I am getting my computer work done early today, so I can spend some time on the porch, sewing al fresco with the chipmunks.

I hope you are sewing today too.

  1. Linda: I recently made this quilt in the colors shown because it looks like ribbon candy to me…I am just a beginner but it was really easy to make and now I think i’ll Do it again with a different color scheme

  2. Lynda:
    I am the designer of this quilt. The pattern was originally published in a book by Annie’s, Row Quilts, Longitudes and Latitudes. My pattern has the pole through the middle of the ribbon wrap and it called Ribbon Play and is on the book cover.

  3. Lynda:

    I am the designer of this quilt. It was originally published in a book by Annie’s entitled Latitudes and Longitudes, Row Quilts. They hold the copyright for the quilt and the book has gone to three reprintings but I am the designer. I just noticed your quilt on Pinterest and followed the link to this page. Hope this helps.

  4. Dear Linda,
    I am just cutting out colored paper to play with the 12″ Waltzing Matilda, came across this thread….with Matilda the block will be just about 5″. Food for thought.

  5. I don’t know about the other references, but the lengthwise strip appeared in Pieced Borders – The Complete Resource by Judy Martin and Marsh McCloskey on page 75. It was called 163. Ribbon. The Book was published in 1994 and contains many wonderful pieced borders to add to our quilts.

  6. This particular design has been used as a border treatment and I think it’s in most of the books about borders printed in the 1990’s. I love the way this designer used it in strips to make a quilt top. It would be fun to go through my border books (I have several) and see what designs might lend themselves to strips across a quilt top.

  7. I also watermark my pictures. Very beautiful design using the free shapes. It my be just what I need for a new Inklingo project as my flower hexagon strip quilt is now in the binding stage.

  8. I don’t know who the designer is, but it was presented as a ribbon border in a book called “all about borders”.

  9. Very pretty and oh so easy with Inklingo! Am I the only one wondering how high the cholesterol must be on that chubby little chipmunk? lol

  10. Hi Linda,
    This Quilt is on the front cover of a book of quilts called Row Quilts through Annies online. You can order it as an ebook or hard copy if available. Hope this helps.

  11. What a fabulous design!! It would be easy and fun to make – and oh, so effective. It makes me want to go rummaging through my stash to find fabrics that would work for it!

  12. One of the fabric manufacturers ( name begins with N) had this in a magazine ad a few years ago. I always wanted to know how to do it. Thanks for this.

  13. It the quilt on a cover of a book about strip piecing.. Saw it at my local quilt shop, but don’t recall the author.

  14. love this easy design, I don’t recognize the designer though – I love pinterest, but hate to say so many things get pinned to it that people loose track of where it was originally seen -I think some do not know they need to link to the origin

  15. It is called Ribbons, but that’s all I remember right now. We are in Seattle about to get on a week Cruise to Alaska. I can check when I get back to Las Vegas for you. I bought the pattern or it was free. Can tell you more after Aug. 5.

  16. Hello –
    I don’t know the name of the quilt designer, but the block is called ‘twisted ribbon’ – and has been around for a very long time. It is easy, and VERY dramatic, as you can see – or just ‘quiet and comfy’, depending on fabric choices.
