Nana:

Judy    I am still waiting for enough patience to do this quilt.  I still remember a DWR quilt that was in the family when I was a small child.  I loved that quilt and wish I knew what happened to it.   I still plan to make one of my own one day but that day hasn't arrived yet.

 

You're still a sweet young thing Nana, you have plenty of time.

 


In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!

Double wedding ring has gone back on my to so someday list, but not now.  My mother-in-law-to-be, prefers modern over traditional.  I know I could change it some, but I think I will be coming up with something else.

This pattern is not made the same as Quiltsmart's  DWR.  This one has melons that are cut out, Quiltsmart's doesn't.  You applique to the background square.

Judy T-Bellingham:

Has anyone else made the DWR from the Egg Money Quilts book? I see the DWR tablerunner has full instructions but the blocks are a different size from the quilt.

Judy, I made that quilt last year, I had never appliqued before and tried it, I was pretty happy with it for my first time. Using the Egg Money Quilts pattern was very easy, I ordered the book and the printed interfacing together at the same time. I used jelly rolls to cut my pieces from. I only made a small wall hanging size, but before I bought my material I used my Quilt Pro program to make it on the computer and then got the yardage I would need from that.

Patti,

You may want to look at the patterns by Jenny Pedigo of Sew Kind of Wonderful.  I bought her template and Urban Nine Patch pattern.  I think it 's a modern take on the DWR.  And you don't have to pin the curves!  Loved it.  Cranked out a queen size in about 7 weeks for a wedding coming up this fall.  Goes to the quilter tomorrow!

MNJen, Wow!! Your quilt is totally impressive! I love it, and I'm not a big fan of the modern look!
