Buck and Jen were home this weekend so Buck could attend his five year class reunion. As we were sitting at the table at 3pm on Saturday, Jen said, “Do you know what we’ll be doing two weeks from today?” That’s when it hit me…the wedding is only TWO WEEKS away. For some reason, I was thinking three. That put me into a little panic so as soon as they left on Sunday, I started ironing their double wedding ring quilt top. TWO WEEKS….oh no. I probably shouldn’t have stopped and finished my Perkiomen Daydreams quilt.
Then while I had the iron out, I ironed this cute little stack of fat eighths. This is from a new Moda fabric line coming out called Scrumptious. Oh I love it and can’t wait to work with it….but that wedding quilt is coming first. Oh…but isn’t this pretty fabric??
Oh I get side tracked easily. Back to the double wedding ring…today. Today the double wedding ring is absolutely going on the quilting machine. I’ve decided on tan thread for the top and navy for the back. Just to keep myself honest, stop back on Tuesday afternoon and I’ll give you a sneak peak of how I’m quilting it.
As I work here at this house, I keep thinking what will it be like at the new house. One thing I know, the sewing room will be big enough so I can keep my full sized ironing board out all the time. That sure will be nice…now, I have to set the ironing board up in the kitchen and iron there.

The wedding quilt is looking really nice, love the colours.
How do you top Perkiomen Daydreams? With a striking version of DWR! Great work. That new floral line will become something equally interesting….
I think I am going to do a DWR table runner (need a small project for this) so I will be paying attention to how you quilt it. It really is beautiful!
Love the colors in your DWQ Jo! Really brings a different look to that classic quilt design. I absolutely adore blue and yellow together, and navy/cheddar is a range that I think I need to explore more. You’ll have it quilted and finished in no time! Then, you can play in those scrumptious fat eighths :*)
I love the navy background on this quilt! I’ve never made a double wedding ring quilt, but I’m seriously considering giving it a try. If I do, I definitely want a dark background. Thanks for the inspiration! Looking forward to seeing how you quilt it!
