Double wedding rings

I really like double wedding ring quilts. Particularly the ones made of scraps, so there are lots and lots of fabrics involved. If you look hard at my sampler quilt, there is a double wedding ring block in there. I doubt if I will ever get round to doing more than that. I found it really difficult sorting out the fabrics. I kept thinking “Oh, there is a nice one. I haven’t got that yet.” Then a few moments later I would find I had a duplication.

Bother.

And that was just the one block.

I’m really proud to say that I know someone who has recently completed a whole quilt in this pattern. Well done, Rosina!!!

Anyway, I thought I’d share this post. Not only does it have some pictures of finished quilts (although none of them are as nice as Rosina’s), but:

  • it shows an interesting negative space design, which cuts out a lot of the fiddling about.
  • it has a link to some useful templates, for reducing the amount of work (always a good plan).
  • it has a link to some pre-cut kits. Which if you can trust yourself not to lose some of the bits is a huge time saver.So that cuts me out then.
