    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/
    Got fabric?

    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.

    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.

    Have fun quilting! If it isn't fun, you will miss a lot.

    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?

    You can find them on amazon as well as Ebay but the books are expensive.

    I used nine rings. 3 x 3 for an infant quilt. 4 x 5 for a toddler and so forth.

    Hi Elma,

    Are you looking for any DWR pattern? I'm not sure what you are asking.

    I purchased Cheryl Phillips Rings That Bind. I tried this technique but not like it. I am now using the John Flynn technique and love it. I purchased the 15" acrylic templates. My quilt is coming along well.

    Have you checked out John Flynn's site. he has engineered a template set that makes doing a dwr so easy. I bought his king size and made one for my brother in less than a month. His technique requires you to cut strips, sew together, put on a line marker on your machine to guide then sew at angle then use templates to cut the football shape and center arcs. Was so easy, matching points at the peaks was real easy. I had no issues making it. Check it out, John Flynn in Billings, Montana.

    Have you ever done paper piecing?
    Here is a link to a free pattern and paper pieced templates. I hyave just started this because I didn't want all the headache of getting each piece exactly perfect or the added expense of another tool. Good luck.

    There is also a dwr pattern which uses nine patches laid out in rings with triangles inbetween them. The pattern is called Jack's Chain. I am in the process of making nine patches for one. The construction is all done without sewing into the seam allowances, though. I tried doing the nine patches that way on the sewing machine, and had a hard time getting my points lined up exactly, so I gave that up and am now handpiecing for the first time. I had long admired this pattern, and am putting my small scraps to good use by cutting them into 2 inch squares.
