Looking for wedding ring-like pattern

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!

Either of these work for you ALice? You gonna spill the beans on who is getting married? There are more than a couple listed in the brackman encyclopedia too. hth, Taria

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!

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

OK ...mine is similar but uses hexagons not octagons . Also by using trapezoids there is no wedge in the corners. Just a bit different !

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.

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. j.

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.

I like it too and can't wait to make it.
Apparently the gal who made it used the Inklingo printing program (

Maybe this one? 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.

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 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!

That looks like one of the ones from the Inklingo group. 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...)

It was made by hand. Inklingo is the tool to mark your cutting and stitching lines onto the back of your fabric. Wonderful program. And since the ends of the seams are clearly marked you can easily combine hand and machine piecing as desired.

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