    Have you made Double Wedding Ring patterns?

    I was wondering who has made this pattern. Thanks everyone for all of your comments.

    I haven't but my daughter is wanting one. I wonder how difficult those curves are. It's time for me to stretch myself with something like this. I'll be watching for hints & tips too!

    I am working on one right now, my first. Sewing the arc pieces together was a breeze. Sewing the curved arcs to the background pieces is a little harder. I'm not having a hard time at all with pieces fitting together just right... it just takes a little more pinning and more time sewing them than sewing straight pieces. I'm anxious to see it all completed.

    I made a table topper with the double wedding ring pattern out of Georgia Bonesteel's first "Lap Quilting" book. She sets it up differently, where the middle of the block is divided into two pieces, which may make it easier.

    It wasn't too bad sewing the curves, but it was time consuming to cut out the pieces.

    Before that I tried a miniature block out of the book "501 Quilt Blocks", and it wasn't salvageable. I think I tried to run before I could walk. I don't know exactly what went wrong, but I suspect my seam allowances weren't accurate enough. The middle bubbled up and it WOULD NOT lay flat, so I tossed it and started the larger one.

    I've also seen patterns where the arcs were paper pieced, then sewn by regular methods onto the melons. There is one free online somewhere, I think.

If you use this book, (if I knew where it was I'd lend it!) I would enlarge this to a 16 inch block. Sewsewn2 helped me along with it, she has made a couple.

    Check out Cheryl Phillips book, "Rings That Bind." There are videos on http://www.hgtv.com that show it done in a 4 block wall hanging. It is a quilt as you go & self binding method and the book usually comes with the arc tool. Mine did, anyway.
