    Double Wedding Ring Quilts

    Yikes! I got 2 nieces who got engaged within a couple of months and now they both want double wedding ring quilts.

    What is the fastest method of this said 'devil wedding ring' quilt (as my quilting neighbor puts it as she is making one too).

    Re: Double Wedding Ring Quilts

    I am making one and I am using this pattern by Eleanor Burns. Nouveau Wedding Ring Quilt: Eleanor Burns Signature Quilt Pattern 735272012986 735272012986 - Quilt in a Day Books
    She also has a video on you tube for this one. It's applique. I love it because you don't have all those pieces to sew together and it looks just as beautiful. I know some people don't like it because it's applique but it's pretty easy. Also, some people say it's not a "real" double wedding ring because of the method that it is made. So of course it's up to you, but I can highly recommend this pattern.
    Here is a link to the video. The way she talks gets on my nerves after awhile... Lol....but there's lots of info in this video.

      Fast and double wedding ring quilt....no such thing. There is a ruler/template called Simple Curves. I have a partially finished quilt using it....it may never get finished and I will never use the template again. The method is not precise enough for all the pieces to fit together nicely.

        I have the accuquilt die & really like it. There are notches built in that make everything match up perfectly.

          I have the 'Rings That Bind' method/book/template----have tried a couple w/out the success I would like! And to think my great-grandmother & grandmother did these by hand w/out all the tools! I don't know of any fast method, but will be watching this thread just in case someone knows of one...

            QuiltSmart has a fusible interfacing to make the double wedding quilts faster. I have no idea how fast that is, two in a short amount of time seems like quite a challenge!

              I've done the Metro Rings pattern which is pretty similar to a traditional Double Wedding Ring and it was quite easy to do – at least compared to the traditional method

                  The Kay Woods video is with the person that came up with the Rings that Bind. I also have the book/template but have never had enough nerve to try it. The video looks so easy, the book, not so much. I was interested to see that I was right about it not being quite as breezy as it seems.
                  The Go version I have seen seems to not have the small trapezoids in the arcs but is just one piece, is that what yours is?

                    I was going to suggest Metro Rings too with the Quick Curves Ruler. I"m working on it right now and having a demo day this Saturday at the shop. It's as simple as sewing 5, 2 1/2" strips together, using the ruler to cut arcs and it's done.

                    There are a few tutorials on how to use the template.

                      I did a paper pieced DWR from a Craftsy class. Can't say it was fast but it was pretty easy. Good luck! (And I made 2 'quick and easy' Frozen quilts for my daughters and doing two of the same was still time consuming and a lot of work!)

                        I had this book, to make a quilt for a friend... It was a terrible experience. I threw the book and the template in the trash, I didn't feel right donating the pattern or giving it away to anyone who might suffer from using it!!

                          I used the Simpli-EZ template for my first wedding ring quilt. I think that the hardest part was to not stretch the fabric while sewing around the curves, and matching the corners/edges accurately. Some of my points were not perfect, but it did turn out OK. Check out my "Trek in the wrong direction" quilt on my new blog or on the quilts by.me website.

                          I have BigShot size die cut machine, and love it. I am tempted to invest in a larger system and am considering the acquit die system also. I think I would especially like it for some of the more complicated block sets like the DWR since it is such a classic.

                          I equate the DWR to a quilt full of sewing sleeves! Everything is on a curve. It was exciting to see it come together though.
                          Best of luck with your projects.
