  • Finished Size: 16" x 16"
  • All seam allowances are 1/4" unless noted.
  • Fat 1/4 = approximately 18" x 21"
  • To make piecing the curved seams easier, find and mark the center of each of the curved seams. Match the centers and pin. Do the same with the ends. A few extra pins in between will hold everything in place while sewing the seam.

Piecing the Mini Double Wedding Ring:

  1. Sew one end arc piece, three symmetrical arc pieces and one end piece reversed together to make an arc. Press. Repeat 15 more times for a total of 16 pieced arcs: eight in yellow to pink shades and eight in blue to green shades.
  2. Using the photo as a guide, lay out all the pieced and solid arcs on a design wall and rearrange until satisfied with the look. Fit missing squares into the layout to connect the arc pieces around the melon shapes. A pink square will fill in one end of a pieced melons and a blue will fill in the other end.
  3. For the first half of the pieced melons, sew an arc to one side of a newspaper print small melon piece. Press. Repeat 11 more times.
  4. To finish the pieced melons, sew squares in place to each end of the remaining arcs.
  5. Sew the two halves of the pieced melons together, finger-pressing centers and matching seams. Press. Repeat 11 more times for a total of 12 pieced melons. See Diagram 1.
  6. Sew a pieced melon to the top and bottom of a background center. Next sew a melon to each side of this unit to form a large circle. See Diagram 2. Repeat to form the units shown in Diagram 3.
  7. Sew the large circles to the partial circles. See Diagram 3.
  8. Sew center curve together, matching seam from both sides. See Diagram 4.
  9. Sew piping with rounded piping trim towards the center, around the perimeter of the pieced Mini Double Wedding Ring. Fold the raw edge under to reveal the piping trim.
  10. Lay batting on table. Place the yellow floral pillow background square on top of the batting and place the Mini Double Wedding Ring in the center. Pin in place.
  11. Sew in the seam where the piping meets the Mini Double Wedding Ring to attach all layers.
  12. Quilt as desired.


  1. Layer the pillow top and pillow back, right sides together. Pin and sew with 1/2" seam allowance, leaving an opening approximately 8" long to insert pillow form.
  2. Clip excess fabric in the corners on the diagonal. Turn right side out, insert the pillow form and whipstitch closed.
