Contemporary Double Wedding Ring from Quilted Joy

Lynn recently brought in this contemporary double wedding ring top to be quilted.  This is a family gift to a couple who recently married.

This contemporary double wedding ring quilt needed the right combination of pantograph and thread to allow its beauty to shine through!

The quilt top appears to be Metro Rings, a design from Sew Kind of Wonderful.  This pattern uses strip sets constructed of jelly roll strips.  The strip sets are then cut into the curved arcs using the Quick Curve Ruler (QCR), also from Sew Kind of Wonderful.  This makes for speedier, easier construction.  One added bonus – if you are not wedded to the idea of the scalloped edges of a traditional double wedding ring quilt, this ...

In the Pink from Sew Sunshine


This quilt I made using the Quick Curve Ruler by Sew Kind of Wonderful. I just love how easy it is to make curve blocks using this ruler.   I made this and several of their patterns for a demo I gave at one of my quilt guilds quilt show this last month.  
This is one of those times that a deadline was good because that is almost all the sewing I have gotten to lately. 

The pattern for this quilt is in their book One Wonderful Curve. I highly recommend this book if you want to give curves a try ...

Holiday Sewing from Becca's Crazy Projects

A few years ago I made a quilt using holiday prints. It challenged me when it came to assembly, quilting and ultimately even the washing.

Somehow, I still have more holiday prints than I know what to do with. It was time to put together another holiday quilt in the hope of using up some of this fabric. I decided it was time to play with the Quick Curve Ruler from Sew Kind of Wonderful again. This time with the Metro Rings pattern. Everyone that has tried it says it is the quickest way to get to a double wedding ...

Odds and Ends from Becca's Crazy Projects

I participated in some totally unwarranted retail therapy over the weekend. I picked up some fabrics that I don't need but I couldn't walk away from. I see some holiday gifts in this pile of fun fabrics.
I came across this buck during one of my afternoon walks. It took him two tries to find a comfortable place to lie down.
 I pulled out my stack of holiday prints and decided it was time to make something with them. I swear, I do not buy these so I have no idea how some of them came to be ...

Small element, big difference from Canuck Quilter

Isn't it funny how a small thing can make a huge difference? I've had a love-hate relationship with this little quilt.


I loved my fabric choices and loved making the blocks.  I hated the way the fabrics played together IN the blocks. (Blocks are from "Chic Sisters" by Sew Kind of Wonderful.)



The pinwheels didn't pop as much as I had hoped. The white and grey prints seemed to disappear where they met the light aqua and yellow.  These blocks were supposed to be joined to make a table runner for a shop sample, but I thought ...

Custom Quilting – Metro Scope Quilt from sewbittersweetdesigns

Back in June I was getting antsy about my husband leaving with the army again so I decided I needed a project to work on that didn’t require any brain power on my part – interpret that as I didn’t want to have to do any quilty math – which designing my own patterns require. Sometimes it is nice to have all the math and figuring out done for you. This quilt was one that I started working on with my wonderful friends, Vicki of Orchid Owl Quilts and Shanna of Fiber of All Sorts, being two of my closest ...
