    Double Wedding Ring--What happened to them?

    My daughter is getting married, and my search for Double Wedding Ring templates, as well as patterns has revealed that they are very difficult to come by. Are they out of fashion? Doesn't anyone do them anymore? They are so lovely..........

    If you want hard templates there are several out there including for the accuquilt go. (pricey)

    I've made 3 of them in the past several years. I got the template from the book Egg Money Quilts by Eleanor Burns. (my avatar is actually a double wedding ring quilt)

    Check out Eleanore Burns books and web site . Her patterns are so easy to understand, she walks you through every step. Her book Egg Money Quilts is excellant. You might be able to get a Gently Used one from amazon.com

    There is another process called InkLingo. It is designed with hand stitching in mind, but you can also use it with a machine. Go to InkLingo.com and check it out. You print your pieces with the actual stitching lines and match-up lines by fusing your material to freezer paper and running them through your printer. The end results of this method are fantastic!

    I have the Flynn template and instructions. The arcs are made with strip sets that are cut and then made smaller on one side, forming the arc. Then you trim to match the arc template and it fits perfectly. They come in sizes from 5" to 24".

    Look into templates that are rotary cut by Shar Jorgensen. They are acrylic and you can do a pieced arc or a solid arc. I think they are pink in color. I have helped a friend do two quilts with those, and they turned out great.

    You might want to check out Cheryl Phillip's Rings that Bind book. It has just been reissued. It is a quilt as you go Double Wedding Ring quilt. Cheryl was a guest on Kaye Wood to demo this method. I actually purchased the DVD of that show, but, you can now watch it on You Tube. It will show you how to construct the quilt. The nice thing is, when you are done making the blocks, you are done with the quilt. It does use a lot of fabric in it's construction, but, you are making both the top and the back at the same time.

    Our local quilt shop, Quilters Common in Wakefield, has been teaching classes in Double Wedding Quilts. They are making them using Quiltsmart (classic quilts using modern methods). It is a printed interfacing, I hear it is a wonderful way to make this quilt and template free. It advertised easy, fast and smart. Everyone who uses this Quiltsmart just loves it and cuts down on your time tremendously. You should definitely try it.
