Double Wedding Ring Quilt Top.......DONE!

16 years ago I took a class...

Piecing the Double Wedding Ring Quilt...

I pieced it on my Featherweight 221...

In Yellowstone Park  in the camp trailer,

I pieced it on my Singer 301...

At an Idaho retreat,

I pieced it on my Singer 185K

Last week while at a retreat here in Oregon...

I pieced it on my Bernina...

The retreat was a week long...

I stuck right with the piecing...

16 years and 3,075 pieces is DONE!

I worked on this quilt in...

Oregon, Idaho, Washington and Wyoming.

My dearest quilting kindred spirit, Linda,

worked along side of me and made her own quilt too!

  1. What an accomplishment! It is just beautiful and a testament to perseverance.

  2. Thanks for your kind comment Barbara! Yes, we were pooped out when we finished these challenging quilt tops.
    My Best To You,

  3. Both are drop-dead-gorgeous!! WOW!! Love them!

  4. In Russia they say: "Better late than never!"

  5. Congratulations! It turned out great. I think that quilting it will be more fun than piecing.

  6. They are both gorgeous, love the double wedding ring. You certainly have some interesting machines, and your quilt is already well traveled

  7. Congratulations!!!!! I love all the photos of the different places and machines. I have one like that I need to blog about too.

  8. Yay! You definitely should celebrate with the champagne--way to stick with it!

  9. Congrats! What an accomplishment and it only took a short time to complete! lol

  10. ¡Muchas felicidades! A las dos. A mí me gusta mucho coser en los viajes.También me gusta mucho coser empleando todo el tiempo que se necesite. Gracias por compartir su experiencia.

  11. So Beautiful! I know you should be proud of all your hard work. Don't know if I'll ever make one, but I definitely in awe of anyone that does!

  12. That is quite the accomplishment!!! You both made splendid quilts!! I can't wait to see how you quilt it - it will be amazing!!!

  13. Love this quilt, I made one with the same kind of repro fabrics and it's one of my favorites. I think you're very brave, sewing it on so many different machines, usualy it bites you in the butt because of the different sizes of the feet, which results in different seam sizes, giftig most people patchwork with loads of pleads and wobbles, but your quilttop looks amazing!

  14. Congratulations! What a timeless quilt pattern - it looks as fabulous today as it would have 16 years ago.
