It’s DONE!!!!!!!!!!..well at least the top!!

I did it….it’s done.  Well at least the top is done.  It’s my double wedding ring quilt that I’ve been making for Kelli’s wedding.

Sorry I don’t have a spot big enough to lay the whole quilt out for you to see.

I ended up with it being 92″ x 92″.  That’s a nice size and Kelli doesn’t care if it’s square so I’m calling it good.   When I started I had no idea how many blocks I needed or how much fabric I needed as I was adjusting a small pattern.  I can say that I have quite a few pieces left over so as a leader and ender, I just might start on a second one.  I have no intention of making it quickly.  I just can’t throw the pieces away and they are already cut out.

See there are just too many scraps to trash.  I think I had the fabric doubled when I was cutting and didn’t realize how much I was cutting.

If there is a quilt to have cut too much of…this one is an okay quilt to have cut too much with.  I could live with having one of these quilts for myself.

Next up…get this quilt top ironed, a back pieced and loaded into the quilt machine.  It’s such a relief to know I will likely make this deadline and have the quilt done on time for Kelli’s March 15th wedding.

    Oh my …. just gorgeous. You are truly a wonder and am sure that Kellie and her hubby will cherish it forever because YOU made it. Do you have enough leftover pieces to make a pillow or two?

    Its absolutely beautiful. I just love it, love the colors too. This has been a favorite pattern of mine since I was teenager (many many years ago). I have never attempted to make one but really do want to one day. Thanks so much for sharing and inspiring me.

    What a treasure! I can’t believe you’re thinking of making another. I think that makes you a master quilter (and certifiably crazy)!! :)

    what a beautiful quilt top! i have always wanted to make a double wedding ring, but cannot stand long enough to cut the pieces out. i have severe arthritis in my back and have to go to an acute pain doctor monthly and get 16 shots beside my spine, 8 on each side. they are not helping but hopefully will in the next few months. thank you for sharing. i love your blog and look forward to reading it. babscorbitt@gmail.com

    It’s just beautiful! I’ve never seen a DWR quilt with dark for the ground color before and the effect is just stunning. Amazing color, just terrific!
