    50th Wedding Anniversary DWR

    Hey everybody! I am in the process of choosing fabrics for a Double Wedding Ring quilt I am going to make for my parent's 50th Wedding Anniversary. I am making Eleanor Burns version of the DWR and it calls for 6 fabrics. I am trying to save, and use from my stash, but, I am open to buying new fabrics. Does the bottom fabric stick out like a sore thumb? That is the only one I am not sold on yet? Would love to hear some opinions from you all out there in QuiltingBoard land! Thanks in advance for your advice!

    It will end up being a very small piece when you put it in the wedding rings, so I think it will end up blending just fine.

    It's a larger print than the others. I think I would go for something else. I did just a wall hanging of the 2 rings for my friends for their 50th in gold. I think I bought 3 times as many fabrics as I needed. Just couldn't decide what went together and how they should shade. Were they the right value and everything else. Good luck and have fun.
    Blessed are the quilters, for they are the piecemakers.

    I think it is a bit bold compared to the rest, just my opinion though. The rest are gorgeous, should make a pretty quilt.

    I think your choices look great together. If I had all that in my stash, I would consider myself blessed. Like the other lady said, the pieces are small and about anything would blend in. I really like the look of the one in question. The design in it seems to have a bit of metallic look to it so I think it would be perfect. Good luck and wishing your parents a Happy Anniversary. I've had 57 of them. So blessed.

    I think they go together well. I agree with the others that you'll have only a small piece showing in your pattern.

    Go for it. Love to see it when completed.
