    I am ready to try to make my favorite quilt, the double wedding ring.
    Can someone suggest the easiest method for me?
    I read/saw a pic of someone making the Eleanor Burns method....
    thanks for your help!
    Any tips/suggestions are greatly appreciated!

    I've never made a double wedding ring quilt. I'm sure that there will be several people on here who can help you!

    I would read up and practice sewing some curved pieces if you have not done them before. There are many video tutorials on this available too :D:D:D
    I can't wait to see yours!!!

    I never knew there was a easy way to make a double wedding ring quilt until I saw it in an Eleanor Burns book. I have made 2 DWR quilts, one piece at a time.lol It was hard,but I just finished one I have been working on for 4 years, or at least I have the top finished. I also made one about 33 years ago. One little piece at a time. The next one will be from Eleanors book. Good luck.

    If you want to piece and quilt at the same time, there is a pattern to do that. I saw this on simply quilts with Alex Anderson, on HGTV.

    I have a DWR die cut if you are interested in having your fabric pre-cut. PM if you want.

    I cheated and just used a curve template and made my curves all one color.

    i think that method was John Flynn. of the Flynn frame.
    he took darts in between each little section though.

    I bought the book Rings that Bind, by Cheryl Phillips. It also comes with a template and instructions for making it 2-color, or scrappy. You can view a video on Kay Wood's website. I'm anxious to make it - after some UFO's get finished.

    I just finished making two DWR tops. I used the Eleanot Burns method which was VERY easy!

    I can help you if you need help. Just PM me.

    She was a speaker/teacher at one of my guilds last year. Her DWR is ooooooohhhh so cool!! If I ever make one I'm using her method.

    A friend recently completed a DWR that was done using the Quiltsmart interfacing. It's beautiful! http://www.quiltsmart.com/

    Here is a link to a strip pieced Wedding ring quilt. It appears to be more boxy, but very easy and no curves to piece. I have made several.

    Here is one I made out of flannel.

    Doesn't Judy Niemeyer have a paper-pieced pattern out for the Double Wedding Ring? I think if I was going to do it, I'd take the easy way out and use a paper-pieced pattern. Of course, you should really enjoy doing paper-piecing if you're going to do it that way. Since I love to paper-piece, that's definitely the way to go

    Can you tell me the name and/or where I can get the Patricia Burns book you are talking about for the DWR Quilt? That sounds like a great one!
