Yesterday was a beautiful spring day here. Russ and I had a movie date followed by a country drive. We used to go on country drives on Sunday afternoons when I was a kid.
Funny how the road led directly to Dairy Queen—my fave. Many things have changed since I was a kid, but ice cream is still the best.
I still had visions of Double Wedding Ring dancing in my head even after all of the Double Wedding Ring Quilt Designs I posted last time.
Are you traditional or not?
Inklingo makes many more Double Wedding Ring designs possible than quilters may have considered in the past.
We started yesterday morning with some non-traditional ones.
Today I start with a design with the more conventional arcs with 4 pieces (plus ends), but then I tweak it a bit too.
This might be what you think of when you picture DWR in your mind. It is traditionally done in 30′s pastels—by expert quilters.
With Inklingo, you can print the shapes on fabric and get beautiful results. You don’t have to be an expert with years and years of experience to make this one anymore!
Here it is again with a few plain arcs and without the points on the edges.
Plain arcs are re-arranged. Can we get a medallion effect?
We can tweak this endlessly.
Should we add Inklingo arcs with 5 or 8 pieces too? Lots of choices.
Medallion quilts look great on a bed.
Another medallion variation. The arcs around the edges are the only ones with traditional pieced arcs.
Again, we can emphasize the medallion effect with different Inklingo center shapes.
No matter what design you choose, you know it will be easier to cut and sew when you print the shapes on fabric with Inklingo.
This on-point Double Wedding Ring is a combination of yesterday and today.
Chocolate or Vanilla?
Do you prefer some of yesterday’s DWR designs or do you like your DWR to be more traditional?
Everyone doesn’t like the same thing.
That’s why they make chocolate and vanilla. Except at Dairy Queen—no chocolate! (Why, oh, why?)
The Double Wedding Ring Design Book ($10 or free) will help you decide.
