Double Wedding Ring tutorial

Here is a great tutorial video showing how to make a double wedding ring.  The cutting method they use has two arcs, nurse a large arc template to cut first, for sale and the seamless arc template to verify it is sewn correctly.  If you do not have the two separate arcs you will have to cut the fabric using your smaller templates.

Happy Quilting, advice

Coffee Quilt

The picture above shows the second quilt top I created.  I adapted a pattern called Nature Rhythms located here to created this quilt.  I enjoyed learning with this pattern because it introduced several aspects of quilting. When I first looked at the drawn image, cheap I had to learn to visualize each block, online instead of the full quilt.  Next, since the pattern pieces were larger than the required, I had to recalculate the fabric requirements and sizes to produce the desired block sizes.  Finally, I had to learn patience on piecing a quilt like this together.  In all, this quilt took about three days to make.

The fabric choices make the quilt most interesting.  You may have heard the saying: “You cannot see the forest through the trees” but when it comes to quilting sometimes you become so hung up on the fabric, “You cannot see the Quilt through the fabric”.  Because of this, it is important when planning a quilt that you decide on what you want to make first, then choose what color scheme you wish to use.  Once you have done this, then select your fabric while keeping the completed pattern in mind.
