Quilt With Us

The Double Wedding Ring quilt that you are probably tired of hearing about is FINALLY finished!  

Here are the stats:

Made for DD and her husband for their June 23rd, 2012 wedding.  (I know, I know.  I missed the deadline, but hey,  I have it finished before their first anniversary.)  

Shar Jorgenson templates.

Reproduction 30's fabrics; prints for the arcs, solids for the cornerstones and binding.  

Off-white (natural) muslin centers.

It is roughly 100 x 100"  (9 rings x 9 rings)

Started cutting:  Sept. 15th, 2011

Finished piecing:  February 4th, 2012.

(long pause)

Marked & basted: July 2012

Hobbs wool batting (wool:  my favorite batt through which to hand quilt, hands down)

Started hand quilting:  August 1st, 2012

Finished: February 25th, 2013

Binding:  Attached 2/26/13 and Finished on 3/4/13.

Nearly 3 spools of hand quilting thread used.  

Quilted in my 14" square Grace lap hoop.

I apologist for the yellow cast to the above picture.  Here's a close-up with more true coloring.  Aren't those repro 30's prints wonderful?  

Here is the back side and the binding.  (I did miter the inside curves.)

Despite all the whining you had to endure along the way, I absolutely love it!  Most of all I'm pleased at how thrilled my daughter is with it.  She says it has been worth the wait and is anxious to get it on their bed.

I'm so glad to see your quilt.  It's absolutely gorgeous and the quilting is so beautiful!  You should be so proud of yourself.  I sure would be.

Seriously, you should enter this in the State Fair...or at least some of the local quilt shows...

It truly is amazing, PQ! I really cannot believe how beautiful and special this is! The fabrics, the gorgeous quilting, the binding, Whew! Your quilt and your work is simply stunning! You should be in the quilter's hall of fame! I doubt I will ever attempt something as in depth as this, but it is so nice to have these amazing pictures as an example of what is possible if you keep going. You must be beyond happy to have it all done!

I'm overwhelmed with the way you all have blessed me with your kindness and encouragement.  I only hope I am as generous with praise to all of you as you have been to me.  Thank you.

PQ - My work pales in comparison to the workmanship of  your beautiful quilt. Words cannot express just how in awe I am of your talent and patience. Your DD and husband will enjoy this beautiful quilt for many years to come and then some. A treasure beyond all expectation! Congratulations on a job well done! (Standing ovation and trumpets heralding amongst cheers and applause from your quilting family!)
