finally

6 years ago I decided I wanted to make a double wedding ring quilt. I spent around $350 on the fabrics, cut the quilt out and left it. Every 6 months or so, I would pull the pieces out and think, hmmm, maybe this year I'll finish it. And every time the box got put back.

Saturday was the big day. Mom had agreed to help me get it started.

Sooooo many pieces!



How many pieces? LOTS!


I'm doing the orange highlighted amounts.

The two of us sewed for 5 hours,



And in the end, we had all the blue *corner* pieces sewn on and just shy of 200 of the red/brown ones. I have to wonder how long is this really going to take?

  6. Good luck! :) I decided to do one a couple years ago for a friend and could NOT get it to work. I'd get all pieces together nicely until the last point and ugh! So, I gave up on my practice piece (the first one I ever created practice pieces) and looked for other methods. I cheated and used Quiltsmart templates. I still have to quilt the dang thing but it's on the list for this year. I might try it again, realizing now my inexperience was a big part of the problem. ;) So, I'll be watching your progress closely. hehe

    Looks like great fabrics! Just think, at least you don't have to piece all those melons before adding the blue corner pieces!!! 8-)
