Wedding Ring Quilt (no outside border) 42.426x42.426"
10" blocks with setting triangles
I drafted the blocks and quilt in EQ7. I drafted the blocks with their setting triangles as my shortcut. I needed the blocks to finish at 10" to match the setting Ribbon blocks. As a result the block parts, like the HSTs, are an odd size. They are a touch over 1 3/8" finished. Paper piecing the block seemed to be the easiest and accurate way to insure that the blocks finished at 10". I also think that it's an easier way to complete a block that has so many HST's.
I strongly recommend sewing the block sections together with a scant 1/4" seam. (I moved my needle over one right on my sewing machine.)
I'm going to use batiks for my quilt. As drawn, the background fabric is the same throughtout. I'm not sure if I will have enough of the fabric I have. I may have to use a different background fabric for the outside background fabric (setting triangles and half of the ribbon blocks) because I bought all my quilt shop had. I still think I will have an outside border, too. I'm not sure about yardage yet.
