The marriage of the Double Wedding Ring and the Dreamweaver XE

Consider this week’s posts by Christine Baker as part 1 of a complete tutorial on the Double Wedding Ring quilt pattern. Part 2 will be published in April, and the completed bed runner revealed!

To many, the Double Wedding Ring pattern is daunting. It could be because of the curved piecing and the many differently shaped pieces it takes to make this very romantic quilt pattern. It could also be that these differently shaped pieces need to match up every time for the full effect!

As I read through Christine’s posts, I started to believe I could attempt it too as I haven’t attempted one yet. Christine is making a bed runner, which right there, has me thinking it can’t be so daunting, I won’t have that many pieces to work with for the first time. Everything is doable in small increments.

Pace yourself, follow her every day and sew calmly.

Making the Double Wedding Ring bed runner using the formidable Brother Dreamweaver XE certainly makes the job a lot easier. Follow along to see how.

For fun, Christine shared three versions of the design, my favorite being the ‘Christmas’ one for the random placement of the red fabrics. Which one is your favorite? Let me know in the comment section below or on Facebook.
