Default 50th Wedding Anniversary DWR

Hey everybody! I am in the process of choosing fabrics for a Double Wedding Ring quilt I am going to make for my parent's 50th Wedding Anniversary. I am making Eleanor Burns version of the DWR and it calls for 6 fabrics. I am trying to save, and use from my stash, but, I am open to buying new fabrics. Does the bottom fabric stick out like a sore thumb? That is the only one I am not sold on yet? Would love to hear some opinions from you all out there in QuiltingBoard land! Thanks in advance for your advice!

It will end up being a very small piece when you put it in the wedding rings, so I think it will end up blending just fine.

It's a larger print than the others. I think I would go for something else. I did just a wall hanging of the 2 rings for my friends for their 50th in gold. I think I bought 3 times as many fabrics as I needed. Just couldn't decide what went together and how they should shade. Were they the right value and everything else. Good luck and have fun.

I think it is a bit bold compared to the rest, just my opinion though. The rest are gorgeous, should make a pretty quilt.

I think your choices look great together. If I had all that in my stash, I would consider myself blessed. Like the other lady said, the pieces are small and about anything would blend in. I really like the look of the one in question. The design in it seems to have a bit of metallic look to it so I think it would be perfect. Good luck and wishing your parents a Happy Anniversary. I've had 57 of them. So blessed.

I think they go together well. I agree with the others that you'll have only a small piece showing in your pattern.

Go for it. Love to see it when completed.
