Modern Double Wedding Ring

I’m more modern than traditional, so when it came to making a Double Wedding Ring quilt, I had to swerve. Sew Kind of Wonderful has a great pattern that fit the bill – Metro Rings.

I have a healthy stash, and I was able to find the perfect combo within it – Jelly Roll, background, binding, and backing. I’ve always thought scrappy binding was cute, and this would give me an opportunity to use the leftover strips from the Jelly Roll for that.

Loved my find in my stash!
Jelly Roll opened. Like what I see!

Metro Rings uses Jelly Roll strips and the Curve ruler to cut the pieces = less curved piecing.

Also used the sold lime green and solid navy from my stash for the triangle inset pieces. has a specific digital quilting design intended for Metro Rings! Score! Quilted on my Handi Quilter Forte with Pro-Stitcher and Superior Threads So Fine!

All finished except for the binding.

Enjoyed the ruler work on the triangle insets. Curved cross hatch!

TWIST ~ This Week In Studio Time

I’ve been working on a comfort quilt for a friend who is going through a tough time right now.  Here’s what I have laid out right now.

I used my Accuquilt GO Tumbler Die for the first time on some of my stash.  Love it!  So fast and easy!

I’m needing a good quote, saying, or poem for the label. I’m thinking of something about life giving you scraps or a quilt giving comfort.  If any of you have any I’d appreciate you leaving a comment here.  Thanks so much!

Until next time,

Take Care,
