Glowing Wedding Ring Pattern by Virginia Robertson Designs
The Glowing Wedding Ring quilt shown above is created from Princess Mirah Batiks in a rainbow of hues. We love the blend of warm and cool colors, and the contemporary, squared-off shape of the interlocking rings. Make it as big as you wish by adding more rings; in addition to the quilt pattern and acrylic templates, complete kits with Bali Batiks are available.
Crazy Wedding Ring Pattern, 40 x 40", by Virginia Robertson Designs
You can use up all your scraps when sewing this Crazy Wedding Ring quilt ! The 40" wall hanging may be made larger by adding more rings. Create a festive look for Valentine's Day by combining all kinds of bright red prints, checks, polka dots, or even small pieces of plaids. An Easter or springtime color scheme can be made sewing a background of white-on-white fabrics and rings with pale lavender, baby pink, soft yellow, and pastel turquoise tones.
Dresden Plate Wedding Ring Pattern by Virginia Robertson Designs
This clever design is a combination of a Dresden Plate with Wedding Rings. The rounded and notched shapes remind us of interlocking gears; we can imagine this quilt in a number of interesting textures including black-and-white prints, polka dots, batiks, or Japanese indigos. For a variation, you can try a monochromatic color scheme in pale pinks, rose tones, fuschias, and magentas. You could also work with an analogous color scheme of cyan blues, lime green, and shades of grape.
Broken Pickle Dish Pattern, 72.5 x 72.5", by Virginia Robertson Designs
As mentioned in our first article on Wedding Ring Quilts, a "Pickle Dish" is a Wedding Ring variation in which the rings are made with triangular pieces. Here is Virginia Robertson's Broken Pickle Dish variation, which has a different setting than her Pickle Dish Quilt pattern. The color scheme is reversed so that the points are gold, and the fractured background is a scrap bag collection of jewel tone fabrics. There are enough foundation paper arcs included in the pattern to create a 72 1/2" square quilt; you can order additional foundation papers if you wish to make a larger size quilt.
Fat Wedding Ring Pattern, 47 x 47", by Virginia Robertson Designs
This dynamic quilt features a 16-patch section where the fat rings intersect. You can create a happy 47" wall hanging or make it larger by adding more rings. Prairie points add an interesting finish to the quilt! For a lighthearted classic look, use a cream or ecru background and 1930's tiny prints in bubble-gum pink, mint green, tangerine orange, and lemon yellow.
