    Neavoux Dbl Wedding Ring Quilt in Progress

    After some months of indecision, I finally decided to throw caution to the wind and try one of the many types of DWR. I settled on Eleanor Burns' Neavou as I felt it was doable by me. I have learned a lot about this particular process and I will share them with you when I complete this quilt. The quilt is for my DGD who is getting married in September. Asked what colors her bedroom would be and she said, "Black, grey and white." When I ordered my fabric on line, I thought the tan was more of a gold. I decided on a black background as she has a black cat that sleeps on her bed and why not? I plan to make him his own matching quilt for easy laundering. She will be thrilled. So here is what I have so far.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    You are doing a marvelous job. I think it's so cute that the kitty will have his own too.

    Absolutely stunning....This just looks so "rich". I would never thought of using those fabrics - but they are wonderful - and the black background is perfect. White or off white just would not have the same impact. Cannot wait to see this finished.
    Of all the things i've lost, i miss my mind the most.
