A Chance to Win and 5 TIPS!

How about a little more fun with Double Wedding Ring?

And a chance to win the shape collection? OR a $40 Inklingo Gift Certificate?

You don’t have to be an expert quilter with a ton of patience to sew DWR anymore. Just print the shapes on fabric with Inklingo!

Today there are more Double Wedding Ring Quilt designs to inspire you and 5 tips to help you sew one.

 

This design has arcs with 8 pieces (plus ends). Impressive!

TIP 1  Use the unique pressing guide in the Double Wedding Ring Design Book to press the seams in the right direction—and to check the size of the arcs!

 

This is the same design with a few little tweaks. Approx 52 x 52 inches.

 

ON POINT SETTINGS

For me, the real magic happens when the blocks are turned on point.

This design is about 72 x 72.  Wouldn’t it look lovely on a bed with another row of DWR all the way around (96 x 96)?

TIP 2  Use the worksheets in the Double Wedding Ring Design Book OR the Double Wedding Ring Electric Quilt project file to find the finished size of your design.

Double Wedding Ring Quilts with an on-point design can be finished with a straight edge.

 

TIP 3 This half center is provided in two Inklingo layouts to print on fabric. Print the one with straight grain on the long side if you are using it on the outside edge of the quilt.

 

On-point with a medallion effect. Having a variety of centers with appropriate straight grain makes it possible.

 

This one uses the half center with straight grain on the long side.

TIP 4 You can put a Double Wedding Ring Border on any quilt! Had you thought of that?

 

All of the arcs in this one are identical, but . . .

 

. . .you can use more than one kind of arc in each quilt. So many choices!

 

I went with Russ to Niagara Falls NY yesterday to mail book orders. It was the perfect day to walk in Niagara-on-the-Lake too—without the weekend crowds. The spring flowers and blossoms are glorious right now. I came home inspired to try one more design.

 

I’ll call this one Blossoms in Niagara on the Lake.

If you compare these designs with ones in the two previous messages, I think you will see why I love on-point settings so much.

 

TIP 5 You can have 7 pieces (plus ends) in each arc by using two different sizes. That’s what I did for my blossoms design.

  17. Diana says:

    Wow, really beautiful..would love to win. Thanks for the opportunity.

  18. Cathy Witt says:

    Linda, I have the Double Wedding Ring and am working on one now. I am thoroughly enjoying the NYB 1 and am just about to purchase NYB2. I just completed my Jospeh’s Coat.. just need to quilt it. I couldn’t have done any of this without Inklingo. Handpiecing is my relaxation therapy and I never miss an opportunity to tell a fellow quilter just how easy it is using Inklingo.

It’s been a challenge to decide what kind of borders I wanted, and all of a sudden I received an blog entry from Bonnie Hunter reminding everyone of your contest. Well guess what – the light bulb went off – that’s what my border will be DWRs!!! Thank you thank you, thank you – Bonnie for sending the blog out and Linda & Monkey for providing the opportunity and the inspiration!! Hope I am one of the very lucky winners!! Carmela

I’ve only begun to quilt a couple of years ago, but have found that your method especially combined with EQ7 is the perfect way to quilt. Thank you sew much. I would love to make this quilt, but I have always thought this pattern was to difficult – now I see there is hope. Thank you. Hope I win <3
