    this is one wedding ring i think i just might have to keep!

    i need to add more, and i think ill applique stems leaves and maybe flowers around the outer border. the more i do the more i am in love with this! the colors are fabulous! IF i can make it turn out like i want it to, i think ill have to enter it into a couple of shows this year. any suggestions on the borders? i thought about a wavey edge but i have no idea how to do that or if i could master it and make it look good enough to enter. constructive critisim please! your ideas have always been so great in the past and have helped me out so much~~
    thanks (i got this picture down to 300kb or so i dont know why it came thru so BIG! im sorry!)

    What lovely colours and I like the idea of stems and leaves around the border - as to a scalloped edge can't help with that but would love to know how!! Make sure you put up a picture of the completed quilt when done judging by your work so far it is going to be stunning

    Gorgeous quilt, your fabric choice is wonderful. This surely is a quilt you must keep for yourself.

    Your quilt is going to be gorgeous! I absolutely love your choice of background fabric.

    I googled wedding ring quilts: https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&...mg.qO0aT_o7U9E

    Most of them don't have borders. I really like your idea of borders with applique. It will make it different/unique. Will love to see a picture of the finished quilt.

    Beautiful! I use Eleanor Burns scallop ruler to make scallops or waves on the birders of quilts. Works great. Easy to use.

    This is beautiful and I agree the choice of colours is what makes it. Go ahead and applique the borders, it will look great!

    Beautiful top! I see that the pattern you use ends with a straight edge so you don't need to have the scallops unless you want them. Maybe you can add the background fabric as a wide border and mimic the last curve with you vines and flowers? What is the name of the pattern you used? I like how the football shapes are pieced.

    That is very pretty, and I think I would have to keep it also. Flowers on the border would set this off.

    OMG! Your quilt is gorgeous! This is my favorite pattern and so admire anyone who can piece one. I've tried but just can't get everything to line up properly. Maybe I'll have to find one on Ebay. Love the colors/fabric patterns you've chosen.

    I can see why you would want to keep it. The colors are warm and I love the COC background.
