Breast Cancer Awareness Month – Quick and Easy Ribbon Block

Breast Cancer Awareness Month – Quick and Easy Ribbon Block

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Did you know that more than 250,000 women will be diagnosed this year? Many of us have been touched by this terrible disease in one way or another, and when those hard times come, we search for ways to help.

Quilts are a beautiful way to show support and give comfort. Jenny has a tutorial from a few years back for a Ribbons of Hope Quilt but this year as Jenny was brainstorming ways to show her love and support for two of the Missouri Star Family’s very own Breast Cancer Survivors, she was able to come up with an even easier way to make a Ribbon Quilt Block.

Isn’t this Ribbon Block so stunning and powerful? It’s as simple as snowballing a few corners. Jenny got the idea from the X’s and O’s Quilt Tutorial and we want to share how it was done with you. Watch the video below for a mini tutorial on how to make this Ribbon Block and to hear Betty and Sherry’s stories of how they won their battles against Breast Cancer.

Check out the block diagram below. Use one block to make a pillow like Jenny or multiple blocks to make a table runner or quilt!

While October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we know that there are many out there affected by other types of cancer. You can make this Ribbon Quilt Block in another color to show your support to those battling other forms of cancer as well. Stitch by stitch, we can make a difference.

Many years ago, Jenny took her very first quilt class. Even though she was already an accomplished seamstress, quilting seemed a bit daunting. During that class, she learned how to make a log cabin. And when she realized how simple and versatile that little block can be, a fire was lit! Before the class finished, Jenny had completed 12 quilts – and she’s never stopped quilting!
