I don't know about you but I have a list of quilts I want to make someday. One of the quilts on this list is a double wedding ring.
This last winter Jo Kramer from Jo's Country Junction had a Double Wedding Ring Along. I thought about joining in but didn't, it just looked too time consuming so I went a different route.
When I was in Utah last summer, I purchased the Metro Rings pattern at one of the stores we visited. Metro Rings is a modern version of the double wedding ring.
To make Metro Rings you do need the Quick Curve Ruler.
The fun quick method of this quilt is you sew strips together and then cut the curves with the ruler! I sewed the strips and cut all the curved sections before I went to the Jane Stickle retreat. I sewed the blocks and the body together at retreat! These went together so easily, a lot more easy than a traditional double wedding ring would have.
Another quilter at my table was keeping tabs on my progress after I explained the process to her. Our retreat started on Wednesday afternoon. By Friday afternoon I had the center all sewn together. She was very impressed and purchased the pattern and ruler from me as I didn't have plans on making a second quilt.
I added the borders on my own. My flimsy measures 70-1/2" by 89-1/2". Now I can check a double wedding ring quilt off the list!
