Description

I wanted to make something traditional which I could use fabric passed down to me from my Mum and Gran.

Instead of machine stitching diamonds as the pattern suggests, I drew my own 'leaf/vine' design with air-erasable pen and hand sewed each section differently.


It takes time. Make sure you sew keep seam allowance as exact as you can. DON'T use stretchy fabrics or be careful cutting on the bias - the small pieces loose shape and move easily. TIP - (I was told too late for this project) - Spray patches with starch after cutting to help retain their shape.

Above all - have fun, you can un-do any mistakes.

It truely looks like a quilt that has been passed down through the generations because of the fabric. So special! AND you hand quilted it to boot!! Amazing.

I am in AWE! Those are some of the smallest pieces I have ever seen in a Double Wedding Ring..and it looks fabulous! I love the fact that you used fabrics from your family and that it is hand quilted. Beautiflul!
