Time to take your fabric scraps out!
This is a take on the traditional wedding ring block.
I made it in an improv fashion using the ring template – download free – as a stabiliser.
Use a combination of strips and triangles as you go around the ring. Then sew the curved pieces to the ring. I tried using fewer pins around the curves for one of the pieces and it was ok. But if unsure use as many pins as you feel necessary.

My book Turnabout Patchwork
“Turnabout Patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist” is all about playing with blocks – making a block, slicing it up, and turning or repositioning the pieces to make a completely different block (sometimes two smaller blocks) to yield endless quilt tops.
Buy individual chapters of my book
Now that my publisher is going out of business I have bought the rights to publish my book. Now you can download individual chapters. Each digital download is a bundle with 4 quilt patterns in it.
As well as the instructions and fabric needs to make the blocks you’ll find a section on quiltmaking basics at the end of the pattern that discusses:
- Squaring up blocks
- Assembly and quilting
