Wedding Ring
Wedding Ring

This block is a fairly simple block, but it is pretty. It is just simple half-square triangles (my favorite unit) and squares. We will be making this one 10" finished.

We will be working with purple (prints, solids or tone-on-tone) and an offwhite background. I tried to figure out the pressing of seams for the corner sections, but it wouldn't translate well except to do each section separately, so I am going to leave it up to you as we start joining sections.

Sample Quilt Layouts

You need to cut as follows:

  1. Purple: cut 8 3" squares; cut 4 2-1/2" squares
  2. Offwhite: cut 8 3" squares; cut 5 2-1/2" squares

Sewing Instructions:

  1. To make the half-square triangles, mark diagonal on offwhite 3" squares; place right sides together with purple 3" squares and stitch 1/4" on either side of diagonal mark; cut between stitching; press toward purple fabric; square up to 2-1/2"

  2. Join pairs of HSTs together making 4 of each diagram as shown...pressing seams as shown by arrows.

  3. Join one of each set of HSTs from step#2 together to form corner...press seams toward purple.

  4. Join a 2-1/2" square of offwhite to a 2-1/2" square of purple; press seams toward purple.
  5. Attach the purple edge of 2 units from step#3 to opposite sides of last 2-1/2" square of offwhite; press toward purple.
  6. Attach a corner section from step#2 to either side of last 2 units from step#3; press toward unit from step#3.

  7. Join units together to create the block as shown.
  8. IMPORTANT: Please square up your finished block to be sure it is 10-1/2". If it is larger or smaller, check your seams and redo if necessary. If you do not check your measurements, your block may not join properly with other blocks easily to create a finished quilt.


This is what your block might look like.
