Workshop: “Double Wedding Ring”
Water Company – Hilton Head Public Service District
DOUBLE WEDDING RING — A MODERN MARRIAGE
No curved piecing! No football-shaped pieces to set in! Border it, band it, change the colors on the rings!
Make it as traditional as you want, or learn how to change it up into a whole new concept. The flexibility and versatility of this block is surprising!
In this class we’ll change the process of the Double Wedding Ring, taking out all of the curved piecing that makes this block so challenging. By appliquéing the rings, we’ll be able to focus our energies on creativity.
You can hand appliqué, machine appliqué, or fuse to create quilts ranging in size from a miniature to a wall-hanging to one for a king-sized bed. You will also learn how to prep all of the arcs so this is a great take-along project.
The wall-hanging with 4″ rings can be made in a full-day class. Instructions are also given to easily change the size of the rings from 4″ to any size you want.
16″ x 16″ and up (or down).
Workshop Fee: $40.00, Pattern required in class: $10.00. Includes 3 full sized templates for 4″, 6″ or 8″ squares, directions for changing the size of the rings, and 3 finishing techniques. Good for all skill levels.
