Progress..The Double Wedding Ring Saga Continues.

Yesterday I spent the entire day working on the Double Wedding Ring quilt.

Quilt-1

WOW..I have do idea it would take so long.  For the most part, I am happy with the design.  My skill level needs some work but by the time I was on the last row, it had improved quite a bit.  

Quilt-2
Today I am hoping to get to some binding.  If I can get the binding cut, sewn together and sew down the first time, I am going to call it a success.  I typically machine bind the entire thing.  I am wondering if I will need to hand sew this being it has the curved edges.  We’ll just have to see.

    It’s beautiful, looking forward to a full picture. The bride and groom will love it.

    When I saw the first post about it and saw the colors I was a bit skeptical. I have to honestly say I think it is beautiful! I would have never thought of doing those colors, but wow!
    After reading your thoughts on the templates I immediately ordered them, as in, from my cell phone while traveling down the road ( my husband was driving). I have always liked Marti’s templates but didn’t ever think I would want to tackle a DWR. Now that I have loved ones who requested a wedding quilt, I thought I would give it a try. Today is the day. The templates arrived, I have the stash and all housework is complete. Well not all, who ever heard of being finished with housework? :)
    I believe once the quilt is washed you won’t be able to tell the from the finish as far as the quilting goes. I used to fret about my machine quilting skills until I tried to show someone how bad I was on a quilt we had washed a couple of times. I couldn’t really see much difference it just looked all wrinkled and soft and comfy, just like Granny used to make. :)

    Great job both in the blues and gold colors and the quilting in the blue! What did you quilt in the gold circles as it doesn’t seem to show in the photos? I’m sure the happy couple will love their quilt!

    Lovely quilt! And your quilting looks wonderful! I’m sure your son and his bride will love it and it will hold so many special memories.

    I’m so glad to see you doing a feather. They scare me too. I like how you approached it though. Since I too am new to using a long arm from a Pfaff Grand quilter, I think Imight try something similar on one of my give away quilts. It’s a good way to practice, giving them away. Your feathers look great, and whimsical. I love it.
