double wedding ring {the beginning}

Last night I started a new quilt - a double wedding ring quilt.


I'm using a free pattern by Freespirit (for some reason the only way to find it is by googling double wedding ring freespirit, don't waste you time looking for it on their website). I gave this pattern two trial runs already. I turned one into this pillow, the other one is a wall hanging.


I'm using mostly scraps for the arches, although I'm pretty sure I'll dig into my stash just to add a little variety to these fun blocks.


I now have 16 arches finished, only 64 more to go :) And then, once the quilt top is all finished, I would very much like to hand quilt it. Let's hope my fingers and wrists will be up for it. Fingers crossed.

Wishing you all a very fun, restful, and creative weekend. Svetlana

  1. I have made a quilt top with this pattern - you can see it here http://www.cascadequilts.com/search?q=wedding+ring I used two jelly rolls and solid yardage and made it quite a bit bigger than the pattern. The intersections were pretty tricky to sew together and it doesn't lay perfectly flat (but close enough it will ''quilt out''). I think I'd probably use this pattern again though.
