    I have made a DWR quilt before and I have just finished this one. It was done by the applique method using fine fusible interfacing, and stitching with invisible thread. It's the largest amount of hand quilting I have done.
    I embroidered the label on my Janome 10001. it looks wonky but it's not in real life.The design was not my choice and the poem was written by my son-in-law. He is best man at the wedding in July.
    I used random lengths of left over fabric all joined together for the binding.
    Hope you like it.

    I have always wanted to try this pattern but it flat out blows my mind!! At first I thought it was sold gold rings until I saw the close up. Its just so beautiful, you should feel so proud A+++.

    What a fantastic piece of work your quilt is!!!!!!! I would be so proud if I could make that one. I am just beginning and have a very long way to go but it is encouraging to see how everyone progresses to the great "beyond". It is beyond beautiful!!

    Just love it.

    Love it! I was just talking with a friend today who said she treasures a quilt in this pattern made by her grandmother.

    I'm not normally a fan of DWR quilts but I love yours. It's the colors you've used. As Quilting Jaguar said it looks like solid gold rings. Very appropriate. It may not have been your choice of pattern but you certainly did a wonderful job. Congratulations. Love the label as well.
