Ring Around the Rosie

Ring Around the Rosie quilt

About this Quilt

quilt-ring-around-the-rosie-flatStrip piecing is a game you always win! Making a strip-pieced quilt is as easy and fun as a game—one you will always win, and the prize is a beautiful quilt! Abigail’s design works especially well thanks to the yellow squares running through every block, bringing a sense of balance and consistency to the scrappy design.

There are 11 assorted prints, plus the turquoise floral, used to make the blocks. Each color will require a matching set of width-of-fabric bands to make all the blocks, though there will be leftover units. Abigail made approximately 5 blocks with each print. There will be some leftover from each band, so feel free to cut extra units to make additional blocks and create a larger quilt if you like! For example, you can cut 16 units from each band, which will give you more than enough units to make a 9 x 9 block setting, but remember you’ll need additional border and binding fabric yardage if you decide to go this route. Use an accurate ¼˝ seam allowance throughout to ensure all elements of the quilt fit together well.
