    Have you seen the latest McCall's Quilting magazine? There is a gorgeous version of Wedding Ring blocks in a quilt called "To Have and To Hold." I have made about five quilts, but never made a quilt with curves. Info says it's an advanced level quilt. Tell me the truth girls, how hard would this be to make?

    Don't let the word curve throw you off :wink: They are not that hard to do, and these are nice wide curves, not little tiny ones :D:D:D

    Thanks Amma. I've heard Wedding Ring quilts are quite a challenge, but beautiful. Have you made one?

    I agree with Amma. The curve in this quilt is wide, so with patience, you should be able to do. Its not like the smaller curve in a Drunkard's Path, which is a little more challenging to do.

    I made the traditional one years ago, and although the curves force you to slow down and take your time, they aren't really "that hard". It is just more time consuming.

    I have just taken the first of three classes for the Double Wedding Ring quilt. I am amazed at how easy it is. You have to sew a bit slower but it's not difficult at all. A set of templates is helpful also.

    If you don't want to cut and piece curves, Southwind Designs has a pattern based on the double wedding ring that does not require piecing curves. Here is the link:

    It may be worth looking at. Good luck. Iris :-)

    p.s. I have bought and made some of their designs and found them to be easy although I have not tried this particular one.

    This one is from the book "Peeled back patchwork--curves without piecing".
