Default Double wedding ring quilt

I am thinking about making a double wedding ring quilt for my nephews wedding. I wanted to pick up some fabric here and there and then really get started sewing in early march.

I am looking at some templates, but there are no yardage recommendations. I understand the back ground will be bulk of the fabric and I will probably buy that last.

I am planning on a queen size - a big queen to have plenty to hang down the side of the bed.

Does anyone have any ideas how much fabric the rings themselve would need ( approximately - I know I will change) I am expecting Christmas bonus in a few weeks so I wanted to get the template and a good start on the fabric when I have that money

I am thinking scrappy rings.. so I will be purchasing a number of different fabrics.... If I got 1/2 yard of 6 different fabrics do you think that would be a good start for the rings?

There are various ways of making these quilts so that would be the first choice you need to make. Acrylic templates are really the only way to go since this quilt with it's curves need precise piecing.
Here is a free pattern and fabric requirements:

Don't know why it takes you to the main page. Here is where it is located:

I'm making a DWR with Marti Michell templates right now. When I started I wasn't good with curves but it is coming together perfect. I recommend it if you choose to go with templates.

I would find a paper pieced pattern. Seems easier than templates. I used John Flynns book when I did mine. Long time ago.

You can get the fusible foundations at www.quiltsmart.com. Click on "Classic Packs" for the Double Wedding Ring. You sew and flip, and can use 2.5" strips rather than cutting all those little pieces. John Flynn also has laser cut double wedding ring kits.

I got an ad in my email today from Fons & Porter advertising a scrappy DWR kit. Since I wasn't in the market for it, I didn't pay close attention to the details, but I noticed that the pieces were precut. I imagine it's pretty pricy, but might be worth checking out. And I made a Texas Lone Star with the fusible foundations at quiltsmart that mckwilter mentioned and it turned out great, so that's another option for a DWR pattern.

This is the pre cut kit. I took a look because I too would like to make one. $299. Don't know how that compares to yardage. Of course, you save a lot of time!!!

Creative grid has a ruler set that makes it look easier. I have the Judy Niemeyer pattern. I started it years ago, one day I will get it done.
