When I’m not drawing up instructions for a baked potato bag (see below post), I am working on a Wedding Ring quilt for a friend. I am quilting rarely these days, but I do expect this quilt will take me about 3 full days to complete it. I am starting with the blocks, then will SID the wedding ring pattern and add in the microwork to make those blocks pop.

I’m still undecided how to quilt the rings. If anyone has an opinion, be sure to leave it under the “comment” section.
A few days ago, I mentioned how I work with my friends with regard to design. I typically draw up one-four ideas, then email it to the friend for feedback. Usually they will pick one from the drawings. Here are the drawings for this quilt:
Options 1 & 2 are from stencils, options 3 & 4 are my own. My friend picked option 2, however, I did modify the smaller white section a bit.
I will echo or microstitch around the motifs in the non-quilted area. Wedding ring patterns seem to take a long time to quilt, imho. Could be my attention span, though. 🙂
When I finish, I will be sure to take a full picture and show you later on. In the meantime, enjoy your day. Regards, Carla
