Progress...........

I finally got some more of this quilt pieced.  The pattern is in "Adding Layers" by Kathy Doughty, the same book the Vintage Spin quilt is in.  This is up on a double design wall and is around 70" square, one block of double wedding ring.



Here is the quilt in the book, 88" square.  The directions call for the eye shaped piece in the center of each quarter to be appliqued but I pieced it in.  The whole 'ring' is also appliqued on the background and I'm thinking about piecing it too.





The background piece is a batik.  The quilt is called "Big Wedding" in the book.  Mine might be called "Wild Wedding".  It is really a very neutral group of fabrics so it should fit into almost any color bedroom.

I got another Vintage Spin block pieced and ready to trim into a square.

Wanda, love the quilts. Did you use a wedge ruler or a dresdan ruler? Both are sooooo cool!

Wild wedding? Too funny. The design is really interesting and your fabrics always make your work wonderful.

I like your interpretation of "The Big Wedding".

JJM said...

Your design is way ahead of the one in the book. And so much more appealing.

Your new Vintage Spin block is dazzling.

p.s. Can not believe it is time to turn our clocks ahead tonight. I am not ready to spring ahead.

That's going to be stunning. I've got to order that book.

I enjoy seeing what new project you are working on. And you are always full of surprises. The Vintage Spiral is going to be gorgeous. The other is wonderful as well. They both look challenging to make.

Those big block quilts are very interesting! Love your colors.

Candy said...

Planning to do the single wedding ring too and glad to hear you are going to try to piece it together. I'll watch to see how that goes.

Well, some people do have "Wild Weddings?" I am ordering this book now!

Charlotta said...

That is a wild wedding, and the biggest wedding ring I've ever seen in a quilt. I love it! Love the fabrics; and the fact it's so big. I've never been tempted to mske a wedding ring quilt, but I could see making this one - with the right fabrics and for the right occasion.

Sheila said...

This quilt is going to be very elegant. Beautiful. I love your fabrics.

Wild Wedding ~ perfect! Just found your blog doing a web search for this quilt top. A quilt store employee, Kelly made this quilt and the shop has asked me to quilt it. Looking for some good ideas. Have a pic of Kelly's quilt posted on my blog. I have the book Adding layers and am personally working on the Vintage Spin as well as another. Looking forward to following your blog!
