Double Wedding Ring


Okay. The show is up, and I can start digging through the stash again. Bliss! My first order of business was an idea that has been buzzing in my brain since the fall. On one of my visits to the ever-delightful Quilt Sundays at the workroom, I got into more than one conversation about a certain popular quilt pattern that looks absolutely fantastic, but turns out to be challenging to make. Make that extremely challenging. Challenging as in "I'm losing the will to ever sew again."

Not on my watch. No, Ma'am.

How about this: Easy. Quick. Fun. Yes, I'm talking about the diabolical Double Wedding Ring!! I have tamed the beast! This evil Bridezilla has been cut down to size and made simple and fun. In fact, this just might be the new "potato chip" of my quilting repertoire. I can't stop at just one!

This is destined for a class at the workroom... Wheee!

Though I suspect I might be out of my depths (having quilted nothing bigger than a stroller blanket at this point) I would definitely take that class! This is one of my favourite traditional designs.

This is gorgeous! I cannot believe the speed you managed to create this piece! And are those small, separate bits making up the "rings"? Absolutely ridic! Once again, you've outdone learning, and headed (or sewn!) straight into excelling. Keep me posted about class. Fantastic!

I can't believe you did it! Well, I can really - I mean, you're that good :) Get a patent on that pattern - you'll make millions!
