If you look through old quilting books, you may find this block called ‘The Wedding Ring’. It is most common to find it done in solid red, on a white background. It is a classic quilt that has been around for decades and it is one of my favorites.
When I came across it again, I started picturing it done with scraps. Since I have quite a stash of scraps, I thought this would be the perfect place to use them up! As I was doing my calculations, I realized that this block is actually the perfect place to use a layer cake of 10” squares. Each square would give me a total of 8 half square triangles. And when I grouped the same fabrics to form each corner, it suddenly looked like birds returning to the nest. And now this old block is definitely my favorite!
