Just one block but it’s what’s on my design wall this morning.
I need to make a wedding quilt and thought I’d make a Double Wedding Ring Quilt. It seemed like a good idea. I even borrowed a friends Accucut Go and bought the Double Wedding Ring dies. I cut a whole bunch of different pieces and started making my first block. It’s not as easy as I thought it would be. I don’t mean that I really think it should be easy but with the fabric cut with a die, I expected it to go together a little easier than it did. Here’s part of the block that I assembled.
After I perfected (I thought) my 1/4” seam it was still a challenge and this is the easy part. I want to make a bed size quilt so I quickly decided to shelve this idea. Bye-bye double wedding ring quilt and hello great-granny quilt.
I’m planning on using a variety of light gray’s and beiges for the background and a huge variety of Kaffe fabrics for the “rounds”. This will not be the first time I’ve made this quilt but this time will be a little different.
Here’s a picture of my first one. You’ll see it’s on my bed right now.
Oops, I see that one of the shams is missing. It was in my sewing room so I could jog my memory of how I made it the first time. I’ve gathered up all the fat quarters for the background and 2 1/2” strips of Kaffe fabrics. I’m hoping to start working on it while I’m at a retreat next week.
