    The quilt is stunning. Love the scrappy colors too. I've always said I was going to make a double wedding ring. Maybe this will give me the inspiration I need. It's a beautiful quilt, and the quilting is gorgeous

    What do you mean when you say "tons of fullness"? I don't recognize that term and can't figure out what it means. Sorry for the silly question that everyone else obviously understands. lol

    I'm always amazed when I see quilting like this. It's an absolutely perfect design. It seems to fill the quilt top so well. My piecing is passable, I can see patterns and color. But, boy, do I have a hard time "seeing" who a top should be quilted. I may just have to admit this is not something I'm destined for and just leave it to talented pros like you guys!

    No question is silly When I say "fullness," I mean that the quilt does not lay flat, that there is "extra" fabric that would otherwise make a pleat in the quilt when quilted. The centers of each ring had way too much fabric in them and didn't lay flat (as compared to the ring portion of the block). That's why we needed to add extra batting when quilting. I guess saying there was "too much fullness" is nicer than saying it wasn't exactly pieced correctly.

    thanks for asking and answering the question about "too much fullness" -- i also didn't recognize what that meant.

    Amazing to see that bad piecing can be "fixed". I would not have thought doubling the batting would do it. Why is it that doubling the batting helped? (I love problem-solving)

    Thanks.

    The quilt is beautiful and the quilting is beyond words! Someday I'd like to be half that good!
