Single Wedding Ring Quilt

I love Vintage quilts and I saw one in a magazine, but it did not tell the name of the block.  I was going through the free patterns at Jolly Jabber/Fat Quarter Shop's blog and found the block!  It is called a Single Wedding Ring Quilt Block.  They have a free block pattern you can download here. on their website.   I am the Queen Bee of the Sew Sweet Bee in August.  I am going to do this block, and I am going to make it king size for my bed next summer.  I am going to need to make a lot of blocks!  LOL
I did change up the pattern by making the center a different color from the outside triangles.  That means six 3 1/2 inch squares of the outside color and 2 of the inside color and then four 3 inch squares of the inside color. The white colors stay the same, does this make since?   I did make my squares just a tiny bigger and then squared up my HST to 3 inches when I was done.  Several people recommended that on the blog hop.  At first, I just cut enough for two blocks so I could play around with them and see what I liked best and how many colors were needed for what part.
As for what colors I want.  I want three colors used, red, aqua and yellow.  Each block should be a combination of two of those colors.  I want a low volume, white print used.  If I decide to use sashing, (I might just decide to sew it without any)I am going to use this fabric until I run out, I only have a yard, I think.
I really like the quilt here, and is the one I am patterning my background fabrics after.  I love the colors in his quilt!  To get an idea of background fabrics be sure to check that quilt out!
There are a lot of pieces in this block and I found that I had to pay attention while sewing it together or I messed it up.  I want to thank my fellow Sew Sweet Bee members for my blocks!  BTW, the colors in my pictures are funky next to the color of my carpet.
