Double wedding ring quilt is quilted!

Posted Saturday, July 31st, 2010 in Family, Quilting | Tags: , ,

I made a double wedding ring quilt for my daughter and son-in-law for their wedding almost two years ago. I finished the top but was stalled by the quilting process. I wanted to quilt it myself but was very intimidated by the pattern.

I had checked with a longarm quilter and her rates were astronomical for a double wedding ring quilt. I met another longarm quilter and checked her rates which were much more acceptable. I scheduled a quilting time with her in December 2009  and found she did not have an opening until July, 2010. I took it to her on July 13 with a scheduled date of the week of July 26. (She reserves an entire week for a double wedding ring quilt.)

I received a call from Kat on Thursday afternoon, July 29, saying the quilt was finished! I picked it up on Friday afternoon. It is beautiful!

The next step is the binding. It has a scalloped edge all around the quilt. I will have to make a bias binding much more narrow than I normally use . My goal is to have it finished by September 27, Jen and Tristan’s second anniversary.
