    Double Wedding Ring from Cheryl Phillips' Book

    This was my first try so I used the simplest, one strip per quarter circle choice. The roses in the center are fussy cut from a pc of upholstery fabric, but you can put print, embroidery, solids, fussy cuts, pictures....anything in the center that you like. It is quilted in a block-by-block method.

    Very pretty quilt! It has an antique look. I would like to learn that quilt block by block method.

    Beautiful, certainly looks easier than the one I did, with all the little pieces that had to be perfect so they would fit.

    cheryl phyllips has a version of the small pieced arcs but even then, they are strip pieced and fast to do... a friend of mine is doing a denim version right now with t-shirt inserts (the roses are the inserts) and no 'ring' at all the red prints you see are really the back lining...you sew two circs together and the red (really a large seam) fold open to display both arc and red 'melon'.... her denim version is single layered, and the blue denim becomes the arc PLUS the melon, making it appear more like a cathedral window, much simpler but denim quilts often do not need batting and she just took advantage of it's weight and zigzagged the edges over her t-shirt insets...

    thanks so much and i agree the roses make the quilt...nothing like having a remnant of upholstery fabric in the stash....I quilt with a girl who is a master of mixing prints and colors and I am doing my best to learn to be brave when shopping in my stash... this is one of my favorite pcs i've ever made and it's because of sewing with other people... we have a small (3 people) group that sews together every Thursday, from 9:30 am to approx 3-4 pm. Fun, we learn from each other and it keeps us focused on our projects.

    Very pretty quilt, this is one I have always loved but have never tempted, it looks so difficult to me.

    just a quick rundown. 1. cut large circle for block 2. cut 4 ring arcs for rings around circle, they may match, but not necessarily 3. sew ring onto circle, 2 seams, both by machine 4. cut square of fussy cut or center detail 5. cut sq of batting 6. layer fussy cut, batting and circle and quilt 7. mark circle with guide in book for 4 corners of squares 8. match corner marks on one circle with corner marks on 2nd circle, sew together from corner 1 to corner 2... first 2 blocks joined....repeat .... you have yet to make ONE hand stitch... this is totally streamlined in the book for you and has one 12" ruler and the square guide IN the book for you... she outlines all requirements for different sizes of quilts/wallhangings and shows layouts for strip piecing, cutting, etc. There are many examples to give you ideas.... I don't usually buy books, i draft what i see and go from there. But, this was a totally new concept for me and the book was online for a little less than $20... the cost of the one, included, ruler alone is at least half that. I got a deal at the time that gave me the other two sizes of rulers and the large one is the one in my pic.... Personally, i have made DWR the regular way and I guarantee, learning curve and all, you will have an easier time doing this...

    I have never seen a double wedding ring with a beautiful fussy cut piece in the centers of the rings. You did a fantastic job. It is georgous.

    Beautiful coloring - the fabrics are stunning together! It's warm yet elegant. Great job and perhaps you do a complete tut for us. Some of us are visual learners. Great job!
