I'm really excited that I'm almost finished this Double Wedding Ring quilt. It was a REAL challenge and one I won't try again for a long while. It was so hard to stay focused on this quilt top because there was so many little pieces and then there was so many big pieces and all curved!!! It would have been so easy to fold this one up and "bin" it!! It's a gift, so I can't.
Now, I have to sew the four patches together and then I'll really have to decide how to quilt it. I just upgraded my HQ16 and it's so fancy now, dare I practice on this quilt top? Maybe I'll practice on muslin first. Any quilting suggestions? I've been looking at finished DWR quilts so if you see one you love, could you pass the link to me? Might just do feathers if no one comes up with a better idea. <grin>
I'm still ripping out the paper-dread that job. I have to iron it all and clip the threads on the back because they will show through the white fabric. Still have to cut the binding and everything I read says that it should be cut on the bias. Then I have to sew that onto the curves. A log cabin quilt sound so easy now.
There's a sliver of dark blue and I see that it's not distributed very well throughout the quilt, but only a quilter would know that, right? Not going to re-do any, so I'll just have to live with it.
It measures 82" by 101", hope that's queen size (or queen size enough!), not terribly interested in added another row or should I? Now's the time to make that decision.
If you see any of the blue/green four patches that are not the right pattern, please let me know. I've looked at it so much that I can't see my own mistakes.
