Welcome back! This is our eleventh Wednesday Tute with tips for designing and sewing with Inklingo.
Are you planning a Double Wedding Ring for the NYC Mod Quilter’s Double Wedding Ring Challenge?
You can make a DWR with Inklingo and win a big prize.
Victoria Findlay Wolfe explains it perfectly and she has great credentials for this because her Double Edged Love Quilt won Best in Show at QuiltCon.
This is the “Mod Quilters” Challenge, but there are Modern and Traditional categories.
In Wednesday Tute 10 we looked at several ways to finish the edge of a Double Wedding Ring Quilt.
Double Wedding Ring quilts with the blocks set “on-point,” are less common, but give even MORE design options!
By the way, either one of these pink designs is enough to enter the contest! ONE ring! Yes! You can do this.
This “on-point” setting for Double Wedding Ring is big enough for the other categories of the challenge too because it has 4 or more rings.
This is probably the easiest design to bind because it doesn’t have any corners.
You can practice your scalloped binding on this one.
This is not what most people think of when they imagine Double Wedding Ring.
Up for a challenge? The binding would probably take longer than assembling the quilt top!
Another variation with straight edges.
Compare this to the one above.
I could go on and on but these should get you started.
You can created better designs if you take advantage of all of the options in the Inklingo DWR shape collection.
Today’s examples all have simple rings (arcs) to keep the emphasis on the edges.
The design variations are infinite with these shapes. No matter what you design, it is easier and faster to sew perfect pieces if you print the shapes on fabric with Inklingo.
This is just one of the many options for the arcs. The matching marks printed along the curves make it easy to get perfect results whether you are sewing by machine or by hand. (Example is Timeless Treasures.)
Isn’t it nice to know that no matter how complex or modern the design, it is easier and faster to sew when you print the shapes on fabric with Inklingo?
Monkey and I are hoping our little tutes will inspire you to enter a quilt in the NYC Mod Quilter’s Double Wedding Ring Challenge.
