For a while now, I’ve admired the Double Wedding Ring (DWR) Quilts. I’ve even started a red and white one only to find what they say is true. It’s a big commitment. Frankly, a plain red and white one was kind of boring. So I abandoned it.
But I still love them. While the classic DWR is lovely, I really love the chunky, scrappy kind and perhaps with an unusual background – scrappy or dark. In considering the DWR Challenge I was looking for something a bit different. So, I drafted my own chunky, foundation paper piecing templates. And sewed up a few test rings and a block or two.
Here’s what the segment template looks like.
Despite, my history of a DWR false start, with lots of trepidation I cut out all my needed strips this past weekend. I’m using a favorite fabric line: my precious Katie Jump Rope bundle. I even purchased a few more hard to find fat quarters to round out the colors. That alone I think will be the carrot I need to finish. (Hopefully!)
Eek, ya’ll. I think I’m planned for 64 ring segments.
Some fabric fun:
And while I said I love the DWR classic, I may just do something a little different. Honestly, I have no idea.
I’ll be linking up to WIP Wednesday. Thanks for stopping by!
