Double Wedding Ring Quilts

I decided to create a new board in my Pinterest site. Not sure if folks still use Pinterest, but it sure has a LOT of inspiration for me. My Double Wedding Ring board has 16 photos so far. I didn't realize I had made so many quilts!

Here's one of my recent quilt finishes. I've shared it here before. This is foundation paper pieced with 11" blocks. It's a workshop I teach from time to time.

1930s Double Wedding Ring: 44" x 56"

I like to show how I simplified joining the blocks. I split that center 4-pointed curved background unit into four pieces. Here is what I mean by the 4-pointed curved unit. I took a vintage, 1930s quilt apart and I have plans!

Here is what I mean by splitting the center:

You honestly can't see the vertical and horizontal seams after the quilting. I wouldn't care, anyway!

I've made two small table toppers with pieced center and curved outer edges. I paper pieced the arcs. I'm pretty sure you can see those center seams.

And a second one using some Kaffe Fassett fabrics. I learned that you MUST cut your binding on the bias for this to work. Ask me how I know . . .

I am working on another Double Wedding Ring quilt using some bright blenders from Michael Miller (Krystal Collection) and some teaching samples made with a Windham Fabrics collection called Mimosa. Here is a process shot:

Check out my Double Wedding Ring Pinterest Board and see several more of these quilts and their variations. One goes back 25 years when I simplified the entire thing with just a single melon shape with the center cut out!


  1. All of these are so pretty. I have done a few blocks, but never made a complete quilt. I do like the last photo - colors and fabric designs. Anything looks good in this pattern, I think.
