A little set back…

I have really been trying to work on the double wedding ring quilt for my son and his fiance this week.  I had all of the melon pieces done and had started connecting the melons to the background pieces.

I was SO proud of myself thinking, I am actually doing this!!  Then I pulled the instructions out of the bottom of tote the pieces were in and found this…

UGH!!  It’s a stack of incomplete melons.  UGH.  I thought I had them all finished.  Now I am back to more  piecing…

It’s a small set back but nothing horrible as it didn’t involve a seam ripper.  I did take a minute to think about the calendar though…that put me in a panic.  This quilt needs to be finished by August 3rd…the day of the wedding.

I am going to need a few days to do the machine quilting…I am also guessing that I won’t be able to machine quilt the binding.  Oh..the clock is ticking!!  Will I get this done??

  1. You’ll make it. May have to get the girls to come have a sew day but you will make it and it is going to be beautiful.

    Last year I made my daughter and her fiance a double wedding ring quilt in two months. YIKES! Never again, but I did it and they loved the quilt. I broke the whole quilt into daily tasks and it was ready in time for her shower. Since the quilt itself was the centerpiece for the devotional I gave at the shower, it really did need to be done. It turned out exactly as I had hoped and it was so worth it.

  3. I’m rooting for you! If I lived near you I would offer to help, but, alas. And the worst thing that can happen is they get it when they return from their honeymoon – not the end of the world. Good luck, and I hope you enjoy it and don’t stress, too much! :-)

  4. hang in there JO! We’re all rooting for you that you’ll finish this quilt with flying colors and a marching oompah band cheering you on to victory!

  5. Just keep plugging away Jo, the finish will sneak up on you before you know it! I have a DWR in progress and got the center done by taking it a day at a time. I still have borders to add (which also have to be appliqued) and I’m hoping to get back to it after tackling a few more older UFOs. So keep up the good work, as I watch yours develop, it inspires me to get back to mine!
