    Hi, do you know how the edge of this pattern is made? The part that looks like a ribbon.
    Thank you,

    By looking at it, I would say triangles and squares or all triangles. Love the ribbon effect it gives.

    Check Quilters Cache. I'm sure Marcia has a pattern for this under border patterns.

    I thought so too, but I don't know if there is a regtangle in there some where. Would you think 4 patches with only 3 colors? (Maybe I'll try that to see if it's all in the arrangement) I tried to enlarge the picture to see, but it becomes so blurred.
    Thank you,

    THank you all. QuiltnNan I think that's it.
    I have a pretty piece of material with Irises, too pretty to cut small. I want to make a table runner & make the twisted ribbon border. I will post a picture when I am done
    Thank you again, you all are awesom.

    I got my instructions from "The Border Workbook". Love this book. It tells you how to make a pieced border to fit YOUR quilt, and includes corner treatments.

    The older edition (less color) is available used from Amazon for a few bucks:

    It's called a Ribbon border. That may help you when doing a search for different versions of it.
    Got fabric?

    Eleanor Burns does this and it is easy. The way she makes it is with 1/2 triangle and 1/4 triangle squares. It is the placement of the colors that make the ribbon...

    I believe the 'ribbon' binding is a piece of striped fabric cut on the bias & used for the binding! ??? That's what I woud do anyway.

    Hi, do you know how the edge of this pattern is made? The part that looks like a ribbon.
    Thank you,
    If you look at each segment, it is like Seminole piecing. Each is cut at a 45 degree angle and pieced. Ex: small dot strip, green, small dot print: pieced in 1" to 2" strips. Cut on angle at 45 degrees, and you will have that unit. Next unit is red 1" or 2" strip (use 1 size to match FINISHED SIZE of other 3 pieces: white dot-green-white dot), cut at angle and piece all to make strip ribbon. If you want to go around corner etc, sketch it on graph paper first, usingeach sq to = 1/2". It is really much easier than it looks. It is very easy to customize. This looks like 1" (finished) strips of the print-green-print= 3" finished and cut at that angle of 2" to finish at 1.5" This is purely a guess. Just sketch out the design using my description.

    Any book on Seminole piecing or borders should have the pattern. This pattern is really easy to customize and has been in books for 10-15 years. The key is to tilt your head to the left while looking at your photo and you will see the blocks. After units are trimmed and pieced, straight borders are pieced in top and bottom. Good luck

    It looks like the ribbon is made up of rectangles cut on the slant and the green is a square, poka dot is half squares attached to the green square and the binding is stripes cut on the bias.

    I don't have this exact pattern, but I do have something very similar. I'm just walking out the door to go quilting so will try and get it sent to you when I get home. Cheers.
