    Darlene Zimmerman has a wonderful template out. I recently was able to attend a class of hers and found the templates and instructions very user friendly. Class attendees were able to finish a top for a double wedding ring table topper in a day.

    The template set works great, I've used it and the quilt came out perfectly matched.

    I have the Marti Michel set of plexi templates so everthing is cut with a rotary cutter and you mark match points.

    Yes I have this too. Made a beautiful queen size for my daughter. I think anyone could use this. The rotary cutting method is the easiest................

    The easiest way to make it is using the Rings that Bind pattern book by Cheryl Phillips. It takes a LOT more fabric to make it but it's faster, easier and no quilting when you get done. I made a pillow top to see how easy it was and it's EASY. http://www.phillipsfiberart.com/


    also Judy Martin has a Monet Wedding Ring pattern that is all straight edges. Super nice.

    I made a double wedding ring, using Elenor Burns method, that worked great for me, she uses a light weight fusible interfacing , you sew your pieces tog, then lay the fusible stuff on top, and sew on the outside edge, then turn it inside out , then applique it to your square, it works great.

    the double wedding ring pattern is in her book, egg money quilts.

    you can get the pre-printed fusible at quiltsmart,
    http://www.quiltsmart.com/khxc/index...acing_doubleWR

    or you can make your own, if you make your own, you get the light weight fusible, it has the fusible stuff on just one side.

    I have the Go cutter and my next purchase is going to be the new double wedding ring dies. I am so excited they finally came out with this die! It sure will help not to have to cut all those smal pieces.

    Ok, maybe I am a glutton for punishment. I am cutting out by hand each and every piece of material for my DWR. I made my own templates from the book by Emilie Richards "Wedding Ring" patterns. Haven't started sewing them together yet, so will see how it turns out. Still have pieces to cut.

    I used the "RINGS THAT BIND" book and template - I made my avatar with it and 4 other wall hangings. It was too easy. You quilt as you go and before you attach the rings to the center piece you can quilt in the center (I did my center (interior square by hand), then when you sew everything by machine it is also quilted in the seams, etc. I love it - Just waiting to for extra money to buy fabric to make a queen size. If I can do this anyone can do this... lol

    I've just finished my second one with the Hartland templates. I found the instructions to be well written. You are walked through step by step. My one piece of advice -- pin, pin, pin, you'll be glad you did.

    I too used John Flynn's method and made my daughter a king size quilt and that was the second quilt I ever made. It was so easy to use. You strip quilt first, then are taking darts to make the curve. You don't have a lot of pieces to cut. Best wishes.

    I made Judy Martin's 'Monet's Wedding Ring' quilt. It's beautiful in stark white with batiks, and there's no special cutting tools needed!

    I went to McCallsquilting.com and I was able to download and print out the instructions for a finished 69 1/2 X 84 1/2 Dbl Wedding Ring quilt and print the templates for paper piecing. I have not made it yet as I am getting the material to do so. Go to this site and see what you think.

    I am making my first one now. I'm using the Feed Sack Wedding ring from The classic american quilt book by rodale. Lots of cutting but jelly rolls help. I just cut the templates from plastic and cut them with scissors from several stacked together. 1500 pieces. I tried a paper piecing one and didn't like it. This one goes together pretty easy.

    I did a DWR with various yellow pirnts w/little bit of red for the curves. Intersection were red...really popped. Gave it to a friend for her 50th wedding anny but unfortunatly lost her husband two years before their anny. Finised it any way and never told her the real reason for the gift.

    Would like to make another one for me but not sure of the color scheme.

    This time I will use Marti Michelle's templates. The dots help to keep you from sewing too far and then having to unsew.

    Don't be afraid of the pattern. Just decided if it will be scrappy or a planned color scheme.
