WIP Wednesday Anniversary

Congratulations to Lee for hosting WIP Wednesday for an entire year! My first WIP post was back in January and I have linked up 19 times. Thanks to Lee, I try to have something to post and link every week, and that keeps me moving forward on this quilting journey.

I've been really focused on the wedding ring star quilt this past week and there is progress to show for it! All 31 of the main blocks are done. Yay!


Now, I'm paper piecing the remaining sections for the outer blocks. The arcs are done, and I'm hoping to sneak in some sewing time this afternoon to work on the melons with star points that go inside the arcs.


Be sure to visit Lee and wish her a Happy WIPiversary!
Then, hop around to see what her friends are working on.

P.S. It was a beautiful foggy morning here in southern Rhode Island.

Kristen said...

Awe-some! I am loving all the projects you are coming up with. I may have asked this before, but what wedding ring pattern is this?

Julie said...

Such a beautiful quilt you are working on! I love the stars in the middle of this one. Is there a pattern or tutorial for this? I'm working on a regular double wedding ring. I'm wondering if I can use the arcs I've already pieces to make it like this instead. This is truly impressive!

Thanks for the pic from Rhode Island. Originally I am from Cape Cod and really miss New England this time of year. Your quilt is coming along beautifully. I have never done a wedding ring before but it is definitely on my bucket list. thanks for sharing.

Your double-wedding ring is awesome! O am really into Kate Spain right now so I noticed the fabric choice right away. I would not have thought to use such busy prints, but you make it look great so now I am tempted to try one myself now that I have seen what you are doing, great inspiration!

Leanne said...

Your quilt is looking so beautiful, and you have used that wonderful fabric so effectively. I look forward to seeing it finished.

That is so beautiful! I love it. You are inspiring me to really, seriously, sit down and figure out how to paper piece.
