In the 1930s, the wed ding ring quilt (or double wedding ring) was very popular in the United States. These quilts are made from small pieces of fabric and produce very little waste. These quilts were frequently made as wedding gifts. This project is not recommended for beginners due to the complexity of the work involved.

Select the Fabric

A wed ding ring quilt is constructed from intertwining circles. It is made using small pieces and has contrasting corner connections. For the corners and background, small scale prints are best. It is possible to use lighter colors for the rings, and darker for the background. However, it is important to keep the contrast high or the design may be hard to see.

Take the pieces apart

Quilting requires accuracy. To ensure a quilt is properly assembled, all pieces must be of the same size and shape. A template is a great way to make cutting pieces for a wed ding ring quilt easier. Transparent templates with non-slip bottoms are ideal. You can use the templates to cut each piece with a small rotary cutter. Each piece will be laid down on a stack pre-cut strips of fabric. Do not include the selvage edges when cutting the fabric.

To ensure that your pieces fit together properly, arrange them on a Flannel Board after you have cut them. This board is covered chicken king with flannel material so that the cloth pieces stick to it. This allows you to make small pieces and make adjustments before making the whole wed ding ring quilt.

Make your own Sew-Alongs

Once the pieces have been cut, sew them together starting with the arcs and then adding the connecting pieces at the ends. Attach the arcs to your melons. Be careful not to create ripples or gathers. Curved seams can be a challenge. Sew carefully around the pins to hold the fabric together.

As you sew the melons together, press the seams. The connecting pieces should be sewn last. If necessary, adjust seam allowances if needed.

Complete the quilt

Once the top is complete, you can use another template to transfer a design to the fabric using a quilter’s pencil. For wedding rings, heart designs are very popular.

Layer batting between the top and bottom fabrics. Then, baste the layers together. You can either sew the quilt by machine or hand. To finish the quilting, attach binding to the outside edges of the wedding rings quilt.

This is a free paper pinning pattern. The Crazee patch Heart was created several years ago by my Saturday Sewing Group to make a quilt for a Breast Cancer Quilt Fundraiser. It was again used by me three years ago when several bloggers made a Heart Quilt in support of a friend with Breast Cancer. For the 2011 Project Quilting Challenge, I created a Sweetheart Quilted Box with the Crazee patch Heart. I also shrank the pattern using my printer and made some mini quilts. This was for a Project Quilting Challenge in 2011. The instructions are available online. The Heart is a 7-inch square quilt block. To make it larger, you can add borders.

Foundation paper piecing is my favourite of all the things that I have tried this year. It can be difficult to find free paper piecing templates. I love modern shapes and graphic animals. As part of my annual Try Something New Every Month challenge, you can see my first attempt at foundation piecing in this TSNEM post.

When I was preparing to learn a new craft technique, I came across tons of tutorials and ideas that inspired me. Grab these foundation paper piecing templates for free and some fabric scraps to learn this unique quilting technique.

Polka Dot Chair provides general foundation paper piecing tips

Although I haven’t tried this yet, I believe it will prove useful to learn how to reduce or increase a Sew Hooked pattern.

Blossom Heart quilts has a free pattern. There is also a tutorial. I love how she explained that pinning can skew fabric. She also suggested holding the pattern/fabric up in the light to check if it covers. It’s much easier to use a ruler to fold the paper than perforating it like I did in my previous post.

Sew What Sherlock offers a “lazy” tutorial, where you can trace the pattern on both sides. This would have been very helpful for me my first time!

Freezer paper can be used for more than just applique. This tutorial by Sandi at Piecemeal Quilts shows how to use it as a foundation.

Different tutorials require different tools. I love my rotary cutter and quilting rulers, but I’m going to go to the fabric shop next time to see if they have a Clover finger presses. They look great!

November is my turn again to create a Do Good Stitches Hope block. I procrastinated, pontificated, and finally settled on this block …..

It was called the Splodge Block. It’s an improv log cabin. The precision comes from carefully choosing your fabrics and not from cutting. These are the steps for making this block.


Grab all of your blue, gray and white scraps.


Sort your colored scraps. This is an important step in any scrap quilt. I will give you some guidelines. This quilt is based upon a cool palette. To make it work, you will need to weed out any scraps that could muddy the block.


Start making your improv log cabins. Your darkest navy blue fabric will be the center of your log cabin.

This photo shows that I don’t pretrim ….. If I have to cut a piece smaller of fabric, I use my scissors.


As you work outward, use lighter blues and grays. After the log cabin is built, I press and add new pieces. I also trim the block

Trimming is a combination of a ruler and a rotary cutter to create a straight edge. However, I don’t square up anything or make sure it is even. I want a straight edge for sewing my next strip.

As you make progress, I encourage to create “logs” for your log house by joining smaller pieces of fabric to make your own strips.


Continue building your log cabin until it is no larger than 12 1/2 inches in size. Make sure your logs are light and white. You will need a frame to surround your splodge.

After you have made enough log cabins for improv, give them a final press. If you have starch (eg. Best Press: Use it liberally at the end to make your block as flat as possible.

paper piecing animal patterns

A book with hundreds of patterns for quilted animals was published 15 years ago. It caused a huge stampede. It sold over 150,000 copies in a short time (just think about all the offspring it produced!). Quilters who didn’t have the original book for years have waited patiently for the new edition to be published. The wait is over. This is the ultimate book on animal quilt blocks!

No matter if you love animals at home, in the wild or at the zoo – Margaret Rolfe’s A Quilter’s Ark has cute creatures that will bring smiles to the faces of children and adults. These 4” x4” paper-pieced blocks can be stitched with incredible accuracy. The original book is available for purchase via reviews.

The re-released edition of my bestseller, A Quilter’s Ark, is a joy for me. It made me reflect on my passion for creating pieced animal designs.

It all started when I tried to create a flower design that didn’t limit itself to rectangles, squares, or triangles. It was then that I realized you can sew any shape provided you only use straight lines. Although not difficult to sew, the Y-shaped junction was a challenge. If you design your project with care and pay attention to the order of your pieces, it is possible to add odd shapes to other shapes. All this can be done using straight seams.

My first animal design was the Crimson Rosella, an Australian parrot. It was a lovely bird that visited my garden. Then I was on the run, designing for Australian birds and animals, farm animals, and North American birds and animals. Each design presented its own challenges. Each design was a challenge. I prefer to use as few pieces as possible in my designs. This allows me to keep the bird or animal’s character intact while making them simple. I make my blocks with 21 pieces for the Ohio Star. Although it’s not always possible, that’s my goal.
