Double Wedding Ring Day………..

It is such a beautiful day today.  The sun is shining and it gives a whole new perspective to life and sewing in general.  I have been going through my unfinished projects and found my Double Wedding Ring and I have started some more rings.

Double Wedding Ring Block 1.1

My first encounter with quilting happened many years ago when I saw a Double Wedding Ring Quilt in a shop window.  It was a very soft pastel quilt with beautiful tiny flowers on a white background and a very pale blue spot binding.  Isn’t it funny how you can remember some  things so clearly.  I desperately  wanted to buy that quilt but I just simply couldn’t afford it.  The  memory of that quilt  has never left me.  So when my local quilting shop advertised classes for a double wedding ring quilt I couldn’t wait to enrol.  I  chose butterfly fabric  because I love them and thought I had better include something for my hubby and  settled on bikes.  He is a cycling fanatic.   I am hand piecing this quilt and have been working at it on and off for a while.  Now that I have shared it with you I will be giving it more attention.

  1. I gather double wedding ring quilts are one of the hardest to do and here you are doing it by hand, it looks wonderful. Interested reading about a linky party but do not know what this is!

  2. I love dbl wedding ring quilts, too! I’ve bought the paper piecing kits so I can make some for each of my children as wedding gifts someday. I think it’s so cute that you included fabrics that represent both you and your husband! Its such a pretty, non traditional palette you picked for your quilt. I hope you keep working on it!
