Yesterday I started working on a Double Wedding Ring quilt. I cut the fabric out with the GO!. I don't have it all cut out, because I wanted to start sewing it (really to see if it would work - it my first quilt with the double wedding ring die).
This is what I have sewn so far.
Just the "football" shapes are sewn - 15 of them (I have to make 71 of them). My plan is to make the quilt 5 rings/blocks x 6 rings/blocks -then it should be about 64" x 75".
So far these are pretty easy to sew, I hope the blocks and rows go together so well.
I find that when I piece things I cut with the rotary cutter, I use a scant 1/4" seam, but with the GO! I have to use a true 1/4" seam to get the shapes for fit together well.
This is a sneak peak of the Friendship Mini Sampler Quilt Along that starts tomorrow.
It will be a little quilt - 11.5"x15". I will post one block pattern a day for 6 days (a couple of days will have more than one block made). Then sewing the blocks together and adding the border. There will be an optional appliqué, and I will also have ideas for machine quilting. It should take about a week. The pieces are small, scraps will work, maybe a fat quarter, or large scrap for the border and binding.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!❤
