Though pricey, quality acryilic templates will make the cutting easier and more accurate (accuracy is vital in this quilt). I chose this particular set because it includes some additional template pieces for other designs, including Orange Peel and Robbing Peter to Pay Paul, both on my "list." I bought my template set on Amazon because I'm a Prime member so the shipping was covered.
To make this quilt, I'm breaking into my precious stash of Paris Flea Market, purchased the first time it came out. These are my fabrics for the arcs, using the yellows, greens, and pinks (most, but not all are from Paris Flea Market by 3 Sisters for Moda). The 4-patches that form the juncture of the rings will be the sage green on the far left and the solid yellow on the far right. I'm thinking of Kona Snow for the background but will make the arcs first.
I usually like to focus on one project at a time but with this one, I might break that guideline. There are times when I need something easy and fast, which double wedding ring definitely is not. I had a chuckle when I read in Marti Michell's instructions, "Since this quilt is not made in an evening..." What an understatement! So I may need some interruptions, with a fast and/or easy project as a DWR vacation.
Wish me luck as I embark on this challenge!
