Default Double Wedding Ring

My daughter has asked for a quilt in the double wedding ring pattern. I have made some quilt tops but none that look as intricate as that. Any suggestions on where to find a Double Wedding Ring Pattern that is relatively easy to understand and has a dash of "dummy proof" added?

Rings that Bind is a very simple DWR technique. It takes about 3x the fabric but everything is made together and when you are finished sewing it is done, quilting and all. I made a small crib size and it was super easy. There is a demo on the website: http://phillipsfiberart.danemcoweb.com/ringsthatbind/

There are some DWR patterns out. Check out Eleanor Burns. I am in the process of making one and you are right they are intricate and not so easy to do. I sew on mine a while and then put it away and work on something else for a while. That way I don't get to burned out on this project.

And check out quiltsmart.com, too. They have a really easy method that I used years ago for a lonestar quilt.

I agree that Rings That Bind is really easy ... it is a quilt as you go type project without all those bulky joining seams. Easy to do it all yourself. Even I can do it with my hands. You can decide to adjust the size as you go too.

Please don't let the front cover quilt discourage you. Look quilt on the back and the quilts inside.

Otherwise, I prefer John Flynn's method where you start with squares but sew them so that they become part of the arc. I found it fun to do as the cutting was so simple. I know I have it somewhere ... just don't know where at the moment.

I've been investigating this for a LONG time. I've decided to use the QUILTSMART method.

I had never seen this method and I think it looks like something I might be able to do. However, it looks to me like the book is out of print. Anyone know if this is true? Anyone know of a copy for sale?
