    Not for $100,000.00

    Not if the Queen of England herself requested it will I EVER even attempt to make another DWR! I have sewed, ripped apart, re-sewed, re-ripped and used some of the most colorful language I've ever used! This thing is a nightmare i'll never wake up from. It was supposed to be a 5th wedding anniversary gift for my youngest DD, but as you can see by the date embroidered on it( or maybe you can't. It's 12-30-2006) I missed it by a few months! Those of you who make these things in multiples I salute you, those who are considering making one, I have one thing to say, "be afraid, be VERY afraid!

    It is beautiful. Sorry it was so hard for you. If you look up rings that bind, you will find a way that is much easier to do. Mainly because when you get each block finished it is also quilted & by the time you get the whole quilt top put together, it is totally done front & back. It really is a simple way to make this quilt. Kaye woods shows the step by step way of doing it. You should check it out. I have always wanted to do one, but wouldn't commit to it as I knew it would be a nightmare to do the original way. I am now getting ready to tackle it the Kaye Woods way.

    I have always thought that Double Wedding Ring is beautiful. I once saw one that was all blue. Gorgeous. But I have also always felt that it is beyond my capabilities. I can understand why you would not want to play with that again. I do love the colors you chose though. I am sure the kids will appreciate even if it is just a wee bit late.

    Maybe you can just quilt in in this size and make it a bed runner instead of a full-size quilt. You could make color-matching shams (without the wedding rings!!). I think that would be a lovely gift as well and your mental health will remain intact. Runners are very popular these days.

    You are too funny. I've always been leery of trying one. Now I know better. It is beautiful after all your hard work.
