    WOW! All that work. You should be so proud. It's so bright and cheerful. Not your Mama's double wedding ring quilt for sure! Love it.

    It's beautiful. That is one project I have taken on yet, but I do love wedding rings! Your special person must be one lucky person, and sure to cherish it!

    I'm scared, too, to try one of these. This one turned out very beautiful! Great job. Congratulations on a job well done!

    Beautiful, gorgeous, and awesome that it's completed!! I am in the process of DWR. It just about turned me off piecing, but the top is done and my mom is hand quilting it for my son and his wife. What a lovely quilt and to have it done is just outstanding! :-)

    It's lovely! You should be very proud of yourself. A Double Wedding Ring quilt is on my list of "I want to do"s.

    It is absolutely gorgeous, what a fabulous job. I love it and I suspect the recipient will as well.

    I was so glad to get this one finished as it was larger than a regular King sized quilt. My dauther and her husband loves it.

    Oh it is gorgeous. I have wanted to make one of these since I learned about quilting as a child (about 40 years ago), but haven't yet persuaded myself that I can do it. I hope the receiver realises the hours of work in it.
    maker of the 'Oh Dear Jane' Quilt, or should I say trying to the the maker of it?

    So beautifully done! I started one over ten years ago, but got frustrated and boxed it. I don't have your skill. I am pretty sure mine will stay boxed away for at least another ten years :0)
