    Has anyone made the Ring Cycles quilt ?

    https://payhip.com/b/4ICh

    It uses the Jack's Chain block. I ordered the download of the pattern. It doesn't seem as intimidating broken down into segments. I would love to get some feedback from someone who has made this quilt.

    I found the designer Lessa Siegele has a video about this quilt on The Quilt Show.

    Oops, the video is not about this quilt but another one of her designs.

    I've not made that or even seen it before. What a beautiful quilt! I would love to see it it scrappy, two & three color combos, etc.

    We just started another 9 patch block swap here on the board. I was thinking of doing the Jack's Chain pattern with mine, tho the circles will be bigger because the 9Ps are 6". This is the free pattern I was going to use for inspiration:

    According to the pattern, other segments have to join the Jack's Cross blocks to make the ring illusion and fit the blocks together. Half hexagons are used too. The pattern shows three different ways to sew the block. I think I will make the ring first then sew it to a square middle to make the hexagon. Looks very complicated but the units are easy to make.

    I have the pattern downloaded and am gathering strips for the nine patches. Still need background. It is on the schedule for this winter.
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it difficult to plan the day.

    I have made a couple of simplified versions of Jack's chain. They were simplified because there were no set in seams. I've always wondered... Is it Jack's Chain, like jack & jill or Jacks Chain, like the ball & jacks game we used to play as kids.

    Love the pattern, but, it would take a piecer with a lot more patience than I have.

    I have this pattern too - not sure when I'll get around to starting it.

    Oh I love that quilt / pattern. I have so many scraps. I would love to make it, if I ever catch up to the point of just making something I like & use up some scraps.

    Another pattern I am not familiar with but it is gorgeous.
    Sigh, my bucket list just keeps getting longer and longer!

    I think I can machine sew the block to have no set in seams. I don't mind the middle being pieced.

    I like this quilt. Who ever figured it out in the first place was a genius. I went to Quilters Cache and printed out their pattern. Who knows when I will get to making it.

    What a beautiful quilt that will be. I look forward to seeing a post of it when you have it completed.

    I was wondering what size you made and how much of the background (white presumably) you used.

    I am going to get this pattern, today I think. I’d love to know how you intend to modify to avoid setin seams. I wouldn’t mind the pieced middle, either.

    i have an obscene amount of scraps to use up, this ought to do it.

    Beautiful quilt but it looks too complicated for me.
