I love Double Wedding Ring Quilts and am always impressed by anyone able to piece this design. While I have quilted some DWR Quilts, I have not pieced one myself. The following beautiful Double Wedding Ring Quilt was hand pieced by my customer Fiona. Fiona has created a stunning scrappy DWR Quilt with plain white spaces for the quilting design to shine.
My initial idea was to quilt feathers in the white spaces, however, Fiona had a much simpler vision for her quilt. While designing the quilting motif took me out of my comfort zone, I was really please with result.
The design was quilted with the aid of rulers but did not require much marking - I placed dots on various points of the diagonals and used a small circle and one curved ruler to quilt the design.
Fiona has collected her quilt and was very pleased with the finished quilt - her challenge now will be to bind the curved edges of the DWR Quilt.
