Good morning, I was wondering why I had an influx of new member requests this morning and then saw the highlight about the group in the newsletter.
The steps are all done for the double wedding ring quilt and if you have any questions about one of the steps feel free to contact me. I have my book here somewhere and can help you with the size that you want to make.
I did this quilt using John Flynn's step by step guide and then put some tips in here for each step to assist you in making the double wedding ring his way. You will need to buy his book and his templates to make this quilt this way. There are many different sizes - so read through the pages and then if you have any questions please email me - firstname.lastname@example.org
Welcome and I hope that you have as much fun as I did making this quilt.
I could not find this book on his site! Found the temp lets but did not buy as the workbook was not on line. I wonder if this info is to old for new members.
Jean - I found it on Amazon... but if you buy the templates they all come with instructions for the quilt - the book has directions and cutting instructions for all sizes - that is the advantage of the book - but you do need to buy the templates separate even if you buy the book...
this won was priced at $33 but I saw it used for $19
This welcome is the only thread I see in the group. Is there a way to see all the other ones? I went into the RSS link but is only shows a few replies to other discussions. I tried to track back but could not get to step 1.
Jane, on the Discussion page you will see "Sorting and Filtering" in red letters. Click on that and in the "By Date" section choose "Newer than a Year", then choose "Save and Apply" You should then get a list of the discussions for the previous year. Welcome!
Thanks Thea for all you do. When all my Christmas presents are completed I hope to start on this. Hope you are feeling okay.
Donna and anyone else that wants to do this quilt - this was my absolutely favorite quilt style for years when I was learning how to quilt oh so many years ago. I wanted to make one of these so bad. there were so so so many pieces to cut and keep separated to sew together. then I found the John Flynn method and I tried it - my first two were really small ones - just lap size but I had fun making them - I sewed them by machine but hand quilted them - and when I started this group I did my large one - it is still waiting to be quilted and now that i have my long arm and once I feel really confident I will quilt it.
But mostly what I wanted to tell everyone - I have done the steps here one by one and given all my tips to the steps that John Flynn does - somethings I found what I think were easier ways to do it. If you have any questions, I will help you as much as I can - please read through all the steps though as I may have answered the question that you have.
Now this is the only way I make double wedding rings - there are many other methods out there - I can't help you with those - I am sure though that there is someone that can. But if you want to do this quilt - I do highly recommend the John Flynn method - it is simple and is a true double wedding ring when you get done.
Thank again Thea for all you do for us.
