Design Wall Monday–March 27, 2017

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. 

To see what others have on their design wall, check out Judy’s Patchwork Times blog.




  1. Well I would have thought the die would make it easier too! The Granny Square quilt will be so pretty in the Kaffe fabrics and grays.

  2. The Granny Square will be gorgeous made with Kaffe fabrics, but then his fabrics are my favorites!

  3. quilting has taught me to be open to change, and that happens a lot in the quilt world. I have a double wedding ring started as well, but if I ever get back to it, it will probably turn into a table runner.

  4. I keep wanting to make that block but not wedding ring....


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I love knowing that I'm not alone, blogging into thin air.
