Week ? - Liberated Wedding Ring

I remember seeing the Double Wedding Ring pattern in a quilt on my friend's grandmother's bed.  The rings were in different reds while the background was a light yellow.  It was beautiful.  Not sure I will ever make a traditional double wedding ring quilt - but this liberated version is so nice that I think I will make one of these!

The original Liberated Wedding Ring is described - with a lot of other quilt techniques in:
Liberated String Quilts by Gwen Marston.  Well worth the read!

These two sets of directions aren't exactly the same, but close enough I think.....  (Just pick one and sew up a block!)

Paper Piecing


BTW this post shows my favorite setting for the block:
