Double Wedding Ring

My DIL has asked to make her a DWR reproduction quilt. The Accuquilt cutter has dies, but only six segments and the old-time quilts all seemed to have more.

In search of a pattern, I discovered I wanted the book, Rings That Bind by Cheryl Phillips. According to the video, I'd need the "stuff" that comes with it!

If search of the book, I discover it's out of print and there's none to be had.

So, back to my dilemma...what now?

Here's some fabrics to start:


  1. Put the word out - as you have done on your blog. Maybe someone out there in blog land has a copy of the book they would be willing to sell you. Cheryl Phillips is one of the best, someday I want to try a Mariners Star quilt using her rulers. I saw her demo it and it is the only way to go. Bernie

  2. Bernie,

    Thanks for your post. I've decided to get started and found a set of directions to paper piece it from McCall's here:

    She wants scalloped edges, so I have to figure that out now.

It's Been Awhile

I will just say, "Sorry," and move on. Life really gets in the way A LOT for me. It's been a hot summer and the pool has been very inviting. Too hot to sew outside, so "swimming" it is!!! The tree over our pool has shed its leaves directly into the pool. They are still falling, it's a bunch of work to keep them gathered up and off the bottom. Since my husband is unable to tend to the outside work (or inside), I've taken on this task. I've only sucked up so many leaves one time and had to call the pool company to blow the lines. Got one of those leaf catchers, pronto!!! 
Enough said, here's what I've been up to:
I decided that I couldn't pass up the Sew Sampler subscription box from the Fat Quarter Shop. This was the pattern called Moonshine and they included the fabrics so I was able to whip this up pretty quickly.  I'm really happy with my points on this one. I've added the outer borders and will update the pic soon. I'm act…

2017 is Here

Okay, so truth be told, I didn't do very well at finishing projects or blogging about them in 2017. If I blog every day about my 15 minutes of sewing, will that drive readers away?

I did finish this quilt, so I can cross that off of my UFOs, right? I have gifted it, but I really wish I had a pic of the flying geese going up/down. Sigh. Now to made some 2017!!

I did add a page for 2017 so I could list them, but I have so many years with so many unfinished quilts, it's embarrassing. BLUSH
I did start Bonnie Hunter's En Provence and here's a sample of a somewhat finished block. 

I also played around with Cheryl's Meadow Mist Mystery 2017 and I'm almost finished in time for tomorrow's next clue.  I think the piece on the bottom row in the middle might be the inside of the fabric or not??? I'll check.  All the other steps are finished, I hope. 

I'm also going to try free motion quilting for the first time, so I am ready with my panel and will…

A New Project

Here are my fabrics for a new project that is a mystery quilt on a Facebook group to which I belong. If you are interested, you can join the group called "Just Us Quilters" and join in the fun.
