    I've started a double wedding ring quilt - one of my bucket items - and I do believe this is the hardest one I've attempted. First time doing curves. Think I should have started with something else but I tend to jump in with both feet. Which one of your quilts gave you the most trouble?

    I started a DWR quilt when I was about 19 years old. I got one block done and it was wonky. I gave up the attempt and have not pieced one again! Good luck!

    Lone Star! I apparently turned the first piece and my color wave was off. I am hellbent on finishing it. One of these years! It's OK to walk away from a project until it feels better.

    One I haven't done yet! I want to try the Star Spin-got the pattern, but really hesitant-besides, I can't decide on a color scheme yet. Also, foundation piecing-haven't attempted that yet-would love to take a class so when and if I run into trouble, someone will be there to get me thru it!

    The first quilt I ever made was a double wedding ring. And I hand pieced every bit of it and it was a king size quilt. This was back when oldest was still at home and he is 31 now. Heavens!!
    I did alot of moving around after I got it all pieced. So I still haven't quilted it. And was thinking about this just the other day.So I think I am about to get it out and quilt it so I can use it.I figured if that was my first quilt and it turned out looking decent....then I should be able to tackle anything. So keep going. And just be patient with yourself. I look forward to see it when you are done.

    My DWR was the most difficult because I didn't have a good pattern or instructions at the time. It's still a favorite.
