Double Wedding Ring Update

Well, I just knew I would be able to get the double wedding ring quilt top ready to sandwich tonight. I am down to the last 11 orange petals and the last 10 red petals. (Yes, I counted them last night.) lol

Then . . . all of the sudden I realized I don''t have backing fabric. I don't know what I was thinking. I know some people use sheets for the back of their quilts and some don't. Since I am going to machine quilt, I may just use a sheet so I don't have to piece the back. 

And . . . then I realized that I still needed to cut out the applique flowers and leaves for each of the corners of the main double ring section. I do have one corner figured out so it will be very easy to copy it to the other three corners.

I have the monthly dinner with my teacher group tonight. But, believe it or not, we don't really hang around that long. We usually arrive at 5 and leave by 6:30. Not bad for a bunch of gabbing women.

So plans for tonight . . .
  • purchase a sheet and wash it (Selecting the color will be the hardest part. Perhaps Becca will tell me what color she wants. Hint, hint. A text message will be fine.)
  • finish appliqueing the red and orange petals on the final border section
  • get all of the corner applique cut out and pinned on
I figure if I type and post my plans this morning, I will be more apt to sit down and get busy tonight.

I'll let you know how that goes. lol   I'm getting excited. The end is in sight.

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting!
