Double Wedding Ring Challenge

I seem to know lots of quilters that would like to make a double wedding ring quilt, but just never seem to get around to it... maybe because of the curved piecing or because of feeling unsure about color choices or they want to make it scrappy and don't have enough scraps (yea, like that would ever happen.... ). Anyway, I propose a challenge! Let's make double wedding ring quilts. I know it would be motivating to me to have others working on the same project to encourage, give information, help with color choices, and share progress. Now is the time to create that double wedding ring masterpiece that you've been putting off. Think about those young people you know that will one day be getting married and would love to have a double wedding ring quilt as a wedding gift. The fabrics in the sample above are from the Mama's Cottons collection.

Very nice, Glory!  I am in awe of your ability to machine quilt bed-sized quilts on your domestic machine.  My hat is off to you.  These will be great wedding keepsakes.

This is my quilting design for both quilts.  I am doing it on my domestic machine.  I plan on giving these to my children when they get married.

Great work Glory!  Love the gradient work on the rings on your second one and both are very pretty done in batiks.  Are you quilting these by hand or machine and are you using a particular stitch design for the centers?

Nice job on both Glory!  Do you have a preference (the old fashioned pieced way or the paper-pieced way?)  I did mine with templates (acrylic templates, so not really the "old fashioned" way).  I haven't quite mastered paper piecing.  

Are these for you or for others?  Beautiful colors on both.

Glory, they are both lovely.  I am doing he Bali Wedding Star quilt, which is a variation of the wedding ring quilt.  It, too, is paper pieced but is taking me forever.

This is actually my first top and was done to old fashioned way.  I have it about half way quilted.

Did not get the comment posted with the picture.  Just finished the top below and cannot wait to quilt it.  This was my second top and was paper pieced.

Great job, Pam!  Looks wonderful!  Still one of my favorite quilt patterns.

Pam, that is stunning.  I'm so happy for you to get it finished.  You must be feeling very proud of yourself; good for you.
