It’s a Classic Kinda Day: Graduation Class Ring

Inside Banner11

Hi everyone!

I hope you are having some fun with my Classic templates. Today I wanted to show you Graduation Class Ring.

To create this block you will need the following templates.


The template kits for all my Classics are available through Sue Daley stockists and can be bought directly through Patchwork With Busyfingers. This block should measure 12½” when pieced together (12″ finished).

Many of these blocks can be machine or hand-pieced, depending on your preferences and what you feel most comfortable with. I personally prefer to hand-piece these blocks.

The block should now measure 12½” square.

The block should look like this once complete.

As always I encourage you to have some fun with fabric placements and experiment a little!

Here are some basic quilt layout ideas you can try.
