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.

Finished January Project

I did it!! I held off doing my first Dear Jane quilt block to finish my one project a month/January Schnibbles!!! I'm really excited to actually finish something. I think this blogging thing is starting to make me accountable for my projects.

Madeline is done! What do you think? Can't show you the quilting up close as I'm not really good yet. Too many crossovers and a few bird nests on the back creeped in. Done is definitely better than perfect, for now!! Not sure how many more quilts I need to do before I declare myself a better quilter and demand perfection.

I have so many online projects I've signed up for an bought fabric for...crazy stupid, but I couldn't decide which ones not to do!!!


Latest Project - Crayon Curtains

Well, I visited my daughter and she convinced me to sew some curtains for her daughter's pre-school classroom. It's my daughter's design, based loosely on a Pinterest photo. LOL
Here's the latest photo, what do you think?

I'll keep you updated on my progress.

I have a bunch of projects that I want to share. Just need to get an app that works to upload my pics from my iPhone or iPad, have any suggestions?  I need an easy way to upload photos and then I'll use my computer to write the blog itself. What do you use?

On the Go - More Help Needed

So, here's the quilt:

It's pretty much directional, so do I quilt my motif (taken from the appliqued elements and quilt designed in AnS) in the outside border going all around or do I do the top/bottom the same as well as the sides or do I just quilt the motif around the quilt?  Better stated, do I treat it as a wall hanging and that I want to see the cars going across the quilt at both the top and the bottom? Or not? This is why I never get anything done.  
Here's a pic of the motif (may be hard to see):

I'm using the blue thread, just have to decide, help!!!!  I know, I know, it's my quilt, but I'd love some input.
