I can't tell you how many times I've had people come up to me and suggest that I figure out a pattern for the Double Wedding Ring using the QCR! So many times....it's kind of haunted me....and while Helen was demoing the ruler last week at a Craft Fair in Phoenix, she was asked the very same thing....I could tell it was starting to haunt her too!
....so we put our heads together.....over the phone that is and both started playing around with the Double Wedding Ring idea.
The first thing I did was googled images for Double Wedding Ring quilts. That gave me the motivation I needed. I Played....cut...messed up.....took notes....messed up....squared up.....cut....messed up....and FINALLY this is what came from all my mess ups.
YES!! No templates...no hand piecing...just cut, sew and of course square up! It seems like it still needs some tweaking here and there, but it's a start. Do you like the 4 patch in the centers??
Maybe something different?
...and while I was experimenting...Helen was too.
She took a slightly different approach, but I love what she did. Her blocks are a little smaller than my blocks...and she has treated each block as one...where I treated each block as two units put together to form one.
...and there you have it, all you inquiring minds....we haven't forgotten about you and are finding a way to make the Double Wedding Ring faster and easier!! Just hang tight just a little bit longer. ;o)
