So I ordered Victoria Findlay Wolfe's book Double Wedding Ring Quilts. It is a wonderful book, full of inspiration, but few real directions for a beginner.
At last I decided to go on Craftsy, and purchase a class. I have taken a number of classes in the past from Craftsy and they are great. Contemporary Curves Double Wedding Ring Quilts by Jackie Kinkel is no exception. She not only gives great directions, but also material with paper piecing templates too.
It took me several times watching her direction. The beauty of Crafts. You can watch it over, and over, and over again until ones gets it firmly ingrained in ones brain.
Above, my first block. It is perfect, no wrinkles, pleats and it is the right size too.
Block number two, just the two outside white newsprint to sew on, but that is not going to be an issue; I've got this now.
This is a WIP, but I can see a table runner, wall hanging, and oh who knows maybe a quilt in the near future.
So I am linking up with:

Nice block. I love your fabrics.ReplyDelete
Yea! for you! I also like Craftsy for their classes. So nice to get to watch them again and again. I've also bought several patterns from Craftsy. Nice that ppl can link to them to sell their ideas. Oh, and I've bought supplies too and have not been disappointed. I guess I like everything about Craftsy! Can't wait to see more of your DWR quilt!ReplyDelete
