I borrowed this gorgeous book out of the library the other week called Vintage-Style Quilts by Flora Roberts and one of the projects in it was a ribbon pin cushion which was constructed on a similar method to a log-cabin block, inspired by the idea, I grabbed some cotton, lots of ribbon and got started. The block is about 8″ square.
The elephant in the middle is from ribbon that was used to trim the curtains in my bedroom and the others are 3/8″ ribbons that I have collected in the last year or so from scrapbooking.
I have no idea what I will do with this block, Mum has suggested making 12 tiny ones to go round the edge and turn it into a cushion cover or to make it the feature of a bag. I have no idea what I will do other than sit and look at it 🙂 Ideas?

Love the square. Thanks for your kind comments, too. Cheers, Fran.
Ooh, that is so cool! Make a bunch and then sew them together to make a quilt, maybe?
Hey, I have a favicon on my site but it doesn’t show up – any ideas why not??
Wow! What an interesting idea! It looks very nice. I am from Canberra and have a crafty blog too! 🙂
I’d day, put a wider stripe around the edge and turn it into a bag, or else a cushion ^_^
