Modern Double Wedding Ring Quilt

Just wanted to share a photo of the double wedding ring quilt I'm working on for the challenge.  I'm using some "special" aka horded fabric that I'd hand dyed.  I picked up a set of templates from City Quilter - I think they're a bit larger and seemed like they could make things easier for me, that's still TBD. 

There is also a free double wedding ring pattern using a paper piecing method over here at Free Spirit Fabric's Website.  Their example quilt uses a very busy background fabric which creates a nice effect. 

Here are links to a few other modernish or interesting techniques/fabrics double wedding ring quilts that I found inspiring.  One uses striped fabrics for the ring which creates an interesting effect.

  2. Great! I really like the shape of those stripes in your hand-dyed fabric....electric! I've been working on my DWR this week, too. Thanks for sharing the great links.....the one with 9-patch arcs is pretty amazing!
