    I'm making this DWR quilt for my step daughter's wedding gift in March. Well they said they wanted it a little dark because of the dog and cat and they also want kids.

    Sooooo, I had gotten 1/2 way thru this lighter one and decided it was "too light" so I started over and made this darker one for them.

    Hmm-so now you have an extra one that needs a good home. I could suggest a great home: mine LOL. They both are beautiful and you put a lot of work (and love) into them. I'm sure they'll appreciate your thoughtfulness. Very pretty!!

    Both quilts are beautiful. Are you going to let the kids pick when you're done? They'd probably want both. You do lovely work!!

    When my daughter told me she wanted a DWR I told her, "Not happening! :lol: If I make one it's mine!!! " I think she understood. She took the Tennessee Waltz quilt with no complaints!

    Thanks everyone. I used Elenor Burns method and appliqued the arcs. It was VERY EASY!!

    The lighter one I am planning on selling. I have been working on both at the same time since new years eve.

    Would love to get either one..... and I bet they would too.
    So if you don't have a home for the light one... I will send you my address. BOL They are both great.

    Those are beautiful! I started making one last year, and got distracted. I only got a couple of blocks done and never went back to it. I REALLY want to make one now that I see yours!

    Beautiful! This is a quilt that I definately want to make one day. I've been very intimidated by it..... I see you used Eleanor Burns method, I'll have to look into how hers is done. I just love her! Well, you should be very proud of your work and I know they will LOVE and cherish your gift. XO Sandra

    as I was checking out the section of rulers at JoAnn's, I saw this double wedding ring set. It was on sale for a tiny amout. I snapped it up but haven't made it yet but since seing your beautiful quilts I am thinking seriously of doing one in the next months. SC

    Both are great but I like the lighter one better. I guess I'll have to get rid of my kids so I can use a light quilt!
