I am so happy to be joining the Fat Quarter Shop Single Wedding Ring Blog Hop. Well, I hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day weekend. I certainly submerged myself in coffee, chocolate, and quilting.
The Single Wedding Ring block is 13-inches unfinished. I decided to make two placemats for Valentine's Day. They look so good that I will keep them out for a few more weeks!
I used Riley Blake's Lost and Found Love in Pink Main and Riley Blake Designs Basic Shades in Wagon Red. I also used Lost and Found Love in Black Stripes for a contrasting binding. I love those doilies in pinks and reds.
This is a free block pattern by the Fat Quarter Shop, and you can download it here. This block is super simple and truly lovely. Kimberly at the Fat Quarter Shop even made a video for the Single Wedding Ring block which shows how to quickly make all those half square triangles.
The block pattern is free, but if you would like to make a quilt from crib-size to king-size, then you can purchase the quilt pattern at http://www.fatquartershop.com/single-wedding-ring-pdf-quilt-pattern. There is also a lap-size quilt kit available for purchase at http://www.fatquartershop.com/single-wedding-ring-quilt-kit. The colors of this kit are absolutely exquisite and perfect for Spring.
