The double wedding ring quilt is absolutely classic. It is on my “probably won’t ever make it” list, but I love the look. Thankfully, I have the best longarm quilting customers! My customer, Ellen, made this fantastically bright double wedding ring quilt and let me quilt it.

First, I sketched out a few different designs on a dry erase board. I ended up wanting to go with this one. Dry erase boards are excellent for brainstorming. And, if you think you like a design, but want to keep trying other ideas, just snap a picture with your smart phone.

Ellen even let me use her lovely quilt in this quick video. The video shows how I stitched out the center square design in the double wedding ring quilt. She wanted a fun design and interesting thread color. Perfect. This is a bright green background with a Wedgewood Surelock quilting thread shown in the demo. The thread is a baby blue shade, in my opinion.

Looks pretty easy, right? Start with loops on north, east, south, and west, then just add some kind of hook/swirl in each of the corners. Oh, I should mention that the video is sped up by 1.25x.

I ended up leaving the actual cornerstones and narrow arches un-quilted. I filled a wishbone quilting design in the small wedge/melon background shapes.

It was a blast to quilt. Sure, there were starts-and-stops, but I love how the double wedding ring quilting turned out.

Thanks so much, Ellen!!
