Double wedding ring scrap test block

Hello  again, I'm back! Last weekend I made progress with my sewing room re-arranging. I'm not quiet done yet so pictures will be up on the blog later.  Besides the sewing room "makeover" I had some time to try out a new recipe which I found on Pinterest, pinned from Food Snots' blog. It's called the Cinnamon and sugar pull-apart bread, and the recipe can be found  here. I took some pictures when I was done, here's how it looks:

I've put my 2 cents about the recipe in the comments of the blog, but  will tell them here too.
  • I'm not sure about the amount of the flour/liquids, but my dough was not sticky at all at the end, so I had put  a little bit of extra milk while kneading to make it sticky
  • The amount of melted butter and the cinnamon sugar for spreading was way too much and had half of it left

Luckily I bake regularly so I know what a sticky dough should look like and I could adjust the recipe accordingly. The bread came out really delicious. We had it warm with hot chocolate for dinner :)

The other thing/sewing I did yesterday afternoon while watching Transformers 3 and Something Borrowed was the double wedding ring, this time in scrappy version. I did not follow the template version (how surprising), but decided to strip piece the scraps and cut the ark out from the strip pieced fabrics. I'm not sure if I like it this way so I might just have to try the template to see if that appeals to me better.
The points are not exactly as matching as I would like them, but it's all right I guess.

Here's a picture:

So I'm asking you now. Which version do you like better? The scrappy  or the not scrappy? Don't mind the fabrics, they're just leftovers from the log cabin quilt I'm making. Please leave a comment!
Thanks, until we meet again! :)


  1. I like the scrappy version. I have always wanted to make one of these.

  2. i also like the scrappy version, i love the colours you have used - might need to see the impact of a couple of blocks together - good luck

    1. Thanks so much! The problem is, these fabrics will not be the final ones since I want to make a totally neutral color quilt. I don't want to test with those fabrics because I wouldn't have enough for the quilt at the end :(

  3. I would go for scrappy too! Scraps using neutral tones will look lovely! Can't wait to see how this progresses.

  4. I have to say I'm of two minds on this. I like the clean look of the non-scrappy version, and I also like the fun in the variety of the scrappy version. I'm in a scrappy place right now, so I'd probably go with the scrappy version, but they both show a lot of promise.

  5. Haha -- I think you're my kind of girl -- cinnamon bread for dinner -- sounds great to me LOL!

    Interesting wedding ring block -- I don't think I've ever seen one where the pieces were stripped first. I love the scrappy look!

  6. Yummy -- cinnamon bread! Looks fantastic! Thanks for linking up at Minutes for Me Linky Party.


I am truly glad you visited, and a special thanks to You for taking your time to leave a comment! It always makes me smile when people write to me. Thanks, from the bottom of my heart! :)
