**We gathered all of the Double Wedding Ring posts in one page. If you want to review a past step or start your own quilt you can all of the posts here.**
We’re plugging along. We’re cut and ready for some sewing. First we’re going to making the rings. We’ll be making LOTS and LOTS of rings. The main thing to remember when making these is that there is a narrow and a wide end. The narrow ends are ALWAYS together.
There is so “secret” to the sewing. It’s just regular chain piecing. You can see in the photo below that I have a bunch done behind the needle and I’m starting a new batch.
Feed two right sides together through the machine….
Once those are through find a piece that is different and feed those through.
Easy peasy. All the narrow ends are together…all the wide ends are together.
There needs to be six pieces in each small arc.
Feel free to add your new pieces on either end. Just make sure that the narrow ends still are together.
I suggest having a bucket or pan with your pieces in to dig through find colors that will contrast.
After you get a bunch sewing, head to the iron. I don’t iron until all six pieces are sewn into the arc. Here’s my first pile….see?
I iron from the back first making all the seams go in the same direction.
Then I iron from the top.
I stack them all in stacks of 10 so I can quickly count how many I have.
Last count I had over 200 sewn. I need to keep going….440 is the amount needed. Some of colors were running out so I stopped and cut a few more pieces.
See you here next week. I can’t believe I’ll be retreat. My this summer is FLYING by.
