Award Quilt Block

This month’s free quilt block theme is graduation. One of my favorite things about graduation was always the awards that were given out – highest score, most improved, achievements, athletics, and more. So I designed this award ribbon quilt block. You can use the negative space to the left of the ribbon to include the name of the school or institution, and the details of the award. Or, you can just make the award portion of the block, and present it as the award, with a label on the back providing the details.

When I make a free quilt block, I like to use traditional piecing methods because I really want everyone to be able to make them. For this block, I went with Foundation Paper Piecing. If you haven’t yet tried foundation paper piecing, it is a very simple technique and gets you wonderfully accurate results. I have a video on foundation paper piecing that will show you the basics, which is all you need to make this block.
