Get Inspired by Double Wedding Ring Quilts–Traditions Made Modern

Posted by

I am one of the lucky ones to be part of the team to work on  Victoria Findlay Wolfe’s new book, Double Wedding Ring Quilts–Traditions Made Modern.

I have been making quilts for more than 30 years. And in that time, I have made several blocks, and even whole panels, when helping friends make their own Double Wedding Ring quilts. But I haven’t made one for myself. Yet.

Now the techniques presented by Victoria have given me all sorts of ideas!

I needed to test one of the patterns Victoria provided and decided to challenge myself to use only scraps left over for other quilts I have made.

At the moment it is unfinished. So, it is my Double Wedding Ring UFO UFO!

Check out Victoria’s latest book (Double Wedding Ring Quilts–Traditions Made Modern is available for purchase here) and see what ideas you can find. I hope your quilt doesn’t remain a UFO.
