I now have the final plan. Although I tried to import the fabrics to
EQ5, the colors are not exact, nor was I able to fussy cut for the
inner squares, nor the border. But you get the idea. Here are the
fabrics to get a better idea of color. It will be a little over 100
I see my photo is missing one of the fabrics. It has the light white background with tiny bouquets from the theme fabric.
I think non quilters refer to modern or traditional in terms of colours where as quilters refer to modern or traditional in paterns, i bet anything that if you put a DWR in front of her with batiks and pastels she probably would not recognise it as the same design (I know ive watched people do it) however if she doesnt like it i am more than happy to take either one off of you.
Or if you would like to be really ambitious there is this one http://www.flickr.com/photos/ctpublishing/6199010758/in/set-72157627789183806 which is sort of a DWR with a difference done in EPP (could still do it with the girls at retreat) okay i will go now before you slap me round the back of my head.
I know whatever you choose it will look stunning.
lots of love
First the fabrics are very pastel except for the medium purple with dots. And the fabric is very pretty. If there is already a white for the light fabric would you want to add another? If I was going to add a yellow it would be the shade of butter, that rich creamy yellow. Maybe the blue could be a medium shade like in the third fabric with white background? Whatever you decide it's going to be wonderful.
Patti, How about combining the two patterns and doing a lone star surrounded by dwr? Your fabrics are very pretty!
I agree with Frances, modern is more about the colors than the design. Your fabrics are very pretty, but to me they don't look very modern.
Google Modern wedding ring quilt and see if there's something that inspires you. Here's a few I found. I think that first one is really cool.
I agree....those definitely aren't your mother's DWRs. I love that first one...really different.
Jacy:I agree with Frances, modern is more about the colors than the design. Your fabrics are very pretty, but to me they don't look very modern.
And I agree with Frances and Jacy. I think the fabric sets the tone more than the design. I love your lavender fabrics, but to me they don't ring modern.
That first pic from Jacy with the shading in the rings is really spectacular yet not traditional. Personally, I find a whole quilt of double wedding rings a little "over-whelming" and on the boring side. Maybe having a center of DWR's, a fairly wide border of the back-ground fabric, and finally a "straight-lined" (ie piano-key?) border using the fabrics from the DWR melons. I really like quilts that combine both curves and straight lines...they just seem to have more pizzaz. Just MHO...lol!
If you search Pinterest using double wedding ring quilt there are some amazing ones.
Oh no im now thinking of doing the EPP version i mentioned earlier in batiks or amish solids, patti now look what you started.

I get the idea for the quilt, Patti It is going to be gorgeous Ginny
I lied. Here is the final.
Good grief. I corrected the earlier post, now it wont let me delete the last one.
It looks wonderful, if i thought id get a quilt like this id even consider getting married again.
Patti, it's a beautiful quilt. You better get working if you are going to be done by November.
