    From Don-isewman--Another quilt top done, today

    1st off-THANK YOU--THANK YOU--NELLIE DIAZ...She sent me the set of templates for this quilt top. She had a EXTRA set, she gave me...I finished another quilt top today. Its a double wedding ring. This quilt top is 1 that was on the spurge of wanting to make a quilt. I had lot's of 2 3/8'' sq's. Why they were cut that size, I dont have any ideal. So after Nellie, sent me the template set, I started cutting out the pieces sometime last month...I'm going ASK FOR SOME HELP. I want this quilt to be squared up. I want a straight edge all the way around. On the straight edge around, I want to take what 2 3/8" sq's I have left, and sew them around the straight edge. And then sew a strip around the sq's.Name:  001.JPG

    I have 2 of these and I bound it with bias cut binding. It was kind of hard, but I did it, because my Mother-In-Law made the top and she didn't want me to square it up. She is gone now, and I didn't square it up. I love yours. And yours is perfection.

    I find the scalloped border on Double Wedding Ring one of it's best features. If you think the bias binding will be a pain, do a facing border. Lovely top!

    Don -- WOW! That's so perfectly pieced. Great way to use odd-sized squares. Your work is always inspiring.

    Oh Don. That's fantastic! If you can manage to keep the scalloped border it would really be great. That's one of the special things about a DWR.

    Beautiful DWR! I like the scalloped edges, too, but I've never made one. Yours is wonderful!

    I absolutely love the DWR but I love all of your quilts. I can't wait to see what it looks like with the border.

    Don, the tan center you are using in the one pic, take that same pattern but cut it in half. Try that out. From the way it looks, you can do it. Look at it good. Make a sample out of a piece of cheap fabric, or take freezer paper or some other paper and make a pattern and see if it fits okay. My Grandmother made mine for my wedding 51 yrs. ago and I made one for my daughter when she got married in 2000. Hers is in browns and peaches.
    I am really proud of it. Good luck and happy piecing.

    Don, you have another winner there!! It's gorgeous and such precise piecing!! Nellie is such a doll!! Bless her heart!! Well, I love the scalloped border as it's the drama of a DWR! I've only made one in mini form and appliqued the whole thing to a square. Hope you decide the best and easiest way to go for the border! It will turn out great whatever you decide!!

    Don-Just an old quilters opinion but Wedding RING, means RINGS..aka:circles...I would NOT square this quilt top up at all ! You can make square or rectangle quilts galore the rest of your life, this is a Double Wedding RING, please leave the RINGS and do not cut them off...ugh it would not look good at all. Make bias binding and it will sew on like a dream and go around any and all curves you give it and lay right down while hand stitching it down after sewing it on...just my opinion, but gorgeous, gorgeous quilt, don't square it PLEASE???

    It's a beautiful quilt, and either way will make a lovely finish. I did a google image search for the double wedding ring and see this one with the straight edge from McCalls. Maybe you can get some more info on it? http://www.mccallsquilting.com/patte....html?idx=6913

    This one looks like it has been appliquéd onto the other piece http://cindysantiquequilts.com/dynapage/IP488.htm

    No advice - just want to tell you how beautiful your quilt is.
