Double Wedding Ring wedding quilt...

This adorable couple got married last year.
This is my son, Gavin, and his pretty wife, Brooke.
 
"I DO".....
 
 
What a cute little family....
 
 
Brooke has always wanted a "Double Wedding Ring" quilt - so.....I made one for her.
 
 
I decided to use the "Metro Rings" pattern by Sew Kind of Wonderful.
 
 
It was so fun to make.....I have one cut out for myself, too.
 

 
Making progress......
 
 
The rings are coming together.
 

 
I'm in love with this backing - Fabric.com...get it here.
 
 
Brooke requested a grey background, turquoise and apricot corners, and vintage type rings.
I used my Denyse Schmidt stash for the rings.
 
 
I kept it simple - stippled the entire quilt and added a pretty feather in the outer border.
 
 
It's a queen size - about 90" x 108"....80 blocks.
 
 
All bound & headed to Alaska - where they are stationed.
Yes, I hugged it and filled it with love before I sent it.
I love you....

  11. I have the Ruler I'm just afraid to cut up anything with it! Would love to have just a couple of blocks of a Double Wedding Ring for a pillow or small throw. Must get my courage up!

    1. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be - once I got the hang of it. I really enjoyed making it and I'm ready to do one for myself now. Just dive in!
