Liberated Wedding Rings for Sarah

 
It is Sarah at Needle and Thread 's month in my BeeFF (Flickr Friends Bee).  She asked for Liberated Wedding Ring blocks with aqua backgrounds and blue, green & black/white rings.  The original Liberated Wedding Ring block by Gwen Marston uses a template.  I thought this version, based on a nine patch was clever and easily repeatable, so perfect for a bee block.
When Sarah posted her block at the beginning of the month and I looked at my very few pieces of aqua fabric, I knew I would need to get a few new ones for the block backgrounds.   Both of the fabrics I used (Dear Stella chevrons and Little Apples leaves) and also the aqua tree fabric (birch organic) came from Lisa's FreshStash shop on etsy.  (Lisa is a fellow member of the Minneapolis Modern Quilt Guild.)  At our last Guild meeting we had a scrap swap, and I was so lucky to get  a bag of scraps from Nikol that had several blue and aqua fabrics.  Between the two influxes of fabric I was able to make a scrappy block with many different fabrics.  If you'd like to see more the blocks, check out our flickr group.

I love these quilt blocks.... you did a very nice job with it, I even like the colors, and I am not a big aqua fan, usually !

You must have this time management thing all figured out, as it looks like you are getting some sewing done, AND blogging ! I am currently working on the time management plan.... hope I get it organized SOON ! Once taxes are out of the way, maybe....

Enjoying your blog !
