Quick Quilt Candle Ring

Quilted Decorative Candle Ring
I made this in Christmas material but it would be beautiful in any material. I used it as the centerpiece for our Christmas dinner.

Assemble the quilting squares.

You will need 12 squares 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 inches of each color material and 12 squares of batting of the same size.

Sew right sides of fabric together with the batting on top. Be sure to leave an opening to turn the square right side out when finished.

Once all our squares are assembled we can start to put the ring together. First we need to figure out where to sew the squares together.

Be sure to have the color you wish to be at the bottom of the design pointing up. The coordinating color on the back will be folded up to be the top color on the ring.

Measure 1 inch from the bottom Measure 2.5 inches from the side.

To figure out where to sew the squares together, measure 1 inch from bottom and 2 1/2 inches from the side.

Trace a line for the sewing join.

To help guide me I traced a line where I was going to sew the squares with a chalk pen. This is on the inside of the pattern and the line will not be seen. Sew two squares together at the measured line. Keep sewing squares together around the ring.

Last step is to just tack the top corners (green corners in my picture below) together to complete the patterned look. The finished quilted ring looks really pretty and is a big impact on the table as it looks more complicated than it actually is to assemble.
