    New (for me) Wedding quilt pattern

    Did anyone see the episode of Fons & Porter yesterday on "Emily's Wedding Quilt"?
    It looks so detailed but is only two blocks, one of which is really a simple one. You use 2 size strips, one 3.5" and one 2". I was amazed at how this came together. I got to try this one day soon! Or at least put the picture in my "gotta do one day stack"!

    When you see this hanging on the wall, you can see the circles so much better.

    Amazing how the straight lines transform into what looks like circles.

    Its a nice take on a tennessee waltz. I have this pattern on my bucket list The TW just uses a snowball block instead of a shoefly with the HST.

    I saw the show too, and thinking the same as you. And I have the issue. It is going to be my next project too. Maybe pick up some fabric and start to get ready for a winter project.

    Isn't that a fascinating pattern! I didn't see the show, but I bought the magazine for this pattern and ordered the Tri-Recs tool. I got side tracked and started cutting for a hex quilt, but this one is still in my mind.

    That episode aired here today, and I enjoyed that very much. I remember a show they did with just the more complicated block (54 50 fight) and that was spectacular too (that show was from several yrs. ago, as I remember.)

    I saw the show also. I agree the quilt was beautiful. I am thinking I might like to try it someday.

    There is actually a free pattern for a quilt here called Aunt Gracie's Garden that is the same as Emily's Wedding Quilt except that the appliqued border is different. Mid way down the page you will see the word "Bonus" with a PDF download with all instructions.

    I saw the show as well and that quilt was stunning! I loved the secondary ring pattern the blocks made. Shoo Fly is very easy but the 54-40 or Die really isn't. I don't normally purchase rulers that can only be used in certain circumstances. I speed piece all my HST so I've not ever needed a special ruler for those and I prefer to sew on the bias before cutting, but I dont' think those weird Isosiles triangle things can be pieced that way. I'm seriously considering purchasing those triangle rulers. I really love that pattern and put it on my to do list. I've never seen any rulers that aren't F&P rulers promoted on the show before.

    The 54-40 or Fight blocks always frustrate me, because I always seem to sew the side triangles on wrong on half the blocks, no matter how carefully I place the pieces before I sew.

    Mpeters, you can chain piece the blocks, but be very careful. It is an easy block to cut if you have the Tri-Recs rulers, and you can also use the Tri-Recs rulers to cut diamonds.

    I'm very tempted to purchase those rulers. I wonder if I can get them together in one package and use my 40% off coupon. I need another shopping trip like a do a hole in my head, but I really would love to make this quilt. I have a lot of CW repros ready for 4 patching. The hardest part would be those isosiles triangle thingys.

    CWESSLEY if you go through both pages of responses, a link to the free pattern at Fons & Porter's site is posted. That's how I got my copy!

    I don't have any 30's but I think it would do great with CW repros! I have already cut some smaller strips to make the 9 patches with. Now to get some tri-tecs tools.

    I am glad to know it was an easy pattern. I have soooo much 'stash' to use up, but I keep choosing 'hard, labor intensive quilts.' so glad Emily's wedding quilt Is easy, because it is the very next quilt I am going to make.
