I’ve been working on a double wedding ring quilt to give to my in-laws for their 50th wedding anniversary. I started out with big plans; I was going to make it a queen sized bed quilt to give them. I wanted pictures and words on it. Big Plans. Soon after I started, I realized this would be too much with a big move coming up.
I used Sharlene Jorgenson’s book and templates to cut and piece everything together. With time running out, I decided to make it a large lap size quilt. You can see I’ve used gold colored fabrics for the golden anniversary.
I had a friend of mine embroider their names and wedding date and “50th Anniversary” on a few blocks. I was making good progress even though sewing all the curves was tedious. I followed Shar’s instructions and did a lot of pinning. Her instructions also called for not sewing the center 4 patch blocks until the rows were all joined. Going back and stitching those together was also time consuming but the seams came together nicely. I had two halves of the quilt put together and then my sewing machine broke! I took it into the shop and this is what I have so far.
I’ll post pictures when I get it finished and quilted. I think it’s going to look great though.
