Hi, everyone.  I have a quick question for right now and then later I'll
drop by and catch up with everyone.

I once saw a pattern to make a wedding ring type of quilt but using
rectangles that were placed in a circle that gave the appearance of a ring.
The pattern I saw used 30's fabrics I think.  Does anyone know of this
pattern?

Thanks everyone - will chat tonight when the little guy is here.

Oh, that is so close, but I think this one uses all squares or all
rectangles.  I like the looks of this block though.  Thanks for the quick
response!

Re: Looking for wedding ring-like pattern

There are more than a couple listed in the brackman encyclopedia too.

Re: Looking for wedding ring-like pattern
Oh, I think the first one is it!  I'm going to purchase the pattern and see
if I can make it work.  Thanks ever so for finding it for me!

I have two weddings coming up - the first is the daughter of a really good
friend who is getting married in September on the beach.  I thought I'd make
her a "wedding (ring) on the beach" themed quilt.  The other wedding is my
niece in Florida in November.  I think things are looking pretty good for my
daughter and her boyfriend, but no wedding plans as of yet.  Lots of talk,
but nothing solid.  Knowing her she'll let me know a few days before the
ceremony.  And if that's what they want, that's ok with me.  He's a great
guy and he just loves my DGS!

I am bringing 4 quilts to the quilter tomorrow.  Three are baby quilts and
one is a king sized bed quilt that gives new meaning to UFO.  One baby quilt
is for a coworker who will give birth to a baby girl on monday via
C-section.  One is for my grand niece in Colorado and the other is for my
sister-in-law's new grandson.  I have a bit of updating to do on the Get it
Done group!

Re: Looking for wedding ring-like pattern
OK ...mine is similar but uses hexagons not octagons .
Also by using trapezoids there is no wedge in the corners.
Just a bit different !

Re: Looking for wedding ring-like pattern
I just saw one in my pictures today  that  uses 30's fabrics....and the
center of each block is a
white hexagon...
surrounded by 6  trapezoids  ( triangles with the tops cut off ! )
I've been trying to find a pic online but can't.
Wherever I found the picture it was labeled Hex runner.   I've
been looking on Flickr but can't see it there.   Is this what you
think it might be?....not rectangles I know...but perhaps it was trapezoids?

If I can remember how to post on webshots again I'll put it there later
tonight

ring.


Re: Looking for wedding ring-like pattern
Not what I was thinking of, but boy is that a great pattern!  The one I saw
also used 30's fabrics but FWIR, it used 30's squares on a solid white or
ecru background to give the illusion of rings.  The squares were angled.

Re: Looking for wedding ring-like pattern
Maybe this one? <http://webpages.charter.net/jaccola /
FriendshipCircle2.JPG> It's squares and triangles surrounding
hexagons. This is a top that I bought at an auction. It's all hand-
pieced of vintage fabrics -- at least some of them feedsacks -- and I
hand-quilted it. It's very similar to the Jack's Chain in
quilterscache.com.

Re: Looking for wedding ring-like pattern
I think that's it!  The quilt I saw was done with 30's fabrics on an ecru
background.  I think this is really it!  You guys are the best!

Wow!  having seen that, Julia, I don't think I will ever bother to make
a 'real' Wedding Ring!  It's lovely.

Re: Looking for wedding ring-like pattern
when the top is cut off a triangle, isnt that a half
hexagon?
oh (think'n outloud), maybe a half hex is a trapazoid too.
beats the heck outta me.

Re: Looking for wedding ring-like pattern
thanks, Mary, i got it now.
i figured the half hex was a trapezoid but had not gone to
check online anywhere when i replied.
thanks for the link, kept me busy for a while recalling all
i knew from school ever soooooooo long ago.
now if i can only recall next time without checking, lol.
j.
note to self...
a trapezoid has 4 sides, two that are parallel, two that are
not.

I like that -- and it would be relatively easy to piece. Sew the
trapezoid to a white triangle. Sew three of these larger triangles
together to make a half hexagon. Sew the half hexagons into strips.
Sew the strips together.

Re: Looking for wedding ring-like pattern
I like it too and can't wait to make it.

Apparently the gal who made it used the Inklingo printing program (
www.lindafranz.com )
 but I think it would be  fun to make   by hand .

Re: Looking for wedding ring-like pattern
It was made by hand. <G> Inklingo is the tool to mark your cutting and
stitching lines onto the back of your fabric. <VBG> Wonderful program.
And since the ends of the seams are clearly marked you can easily
combine hand and machine piecing as desired. <G>

Re: Looking for wedding ring-like pattern
That looks like one of the ones from the Inklingo group. <G>  I have
some of the hexes made by putting half hexes around a hex, and am trying
to decide how many more to make and what to eventually make with a lot
of other things I have pieced with Inkling hexes/half hexes/diamonds.  I
am thinking of combining several different "combined shapes shapes" into
a sort of sampler quilt, mosaic fashion. (Which probably doesn't make
any sense at all. will see if I can do a photo and explanation later...)
