I can't wait to see your quilt...you've chosen gorgeous fabrics. I have always wanted to make one of these, but I admit...I am a little intimidated! Maybe someday I will just go for it. In the meantime, I'll live vicariously through other more courageous quilters like yourself!!!
Thank you, True and Caribousmom! I found a different set of pattern pieces and helpful tutorials on The Plaid Scottie that I'm following now. It uses foundation paper so it's sooo much easier than the first set of pattern pieces and instructions I found! Once I start doing the curved piecing I'll let you guys know how I'm faring. That's the part I'm really scared about!
You have another fan vicariously living through your project. Post pictures every part of the way okay?
I will definitely post pictures :) This is the first quilt I'll have sewn in quite a while so it's exciting for me again!
oooooh, love that background fabric - stunning! This is going to be amazing!
WOW...this is becoming a beautiful quilt...I look forward to updates.
Oh my amazing...
I love double wedding ring quilts and cannot wait to see how yours turns out! :)
Ooooo! That's going to be awesome.
Wow, it looks so interesting with the background fabric as cornerstones. Can't wait to see a few blocks joined together and I'm wondering how the pattern is gonna be. Love your fabric choices!
I love your fabrics! I can see why you had trouble fitting the second arc onto the melon. When you line up the first arc to pin it, the point of the melon should stick out beyond the end of the arc. After piecing the first seam and opening it up, you should have a smooth line from the melon up the sides of the arcs. If that doesn't make sense, PM me and I'll try to find some pics for you.
