I am very excited to join a quilt a long with Jo of Jo's Country Junction. She is sewing her double wedding ring quilt in the june 2018 magazine.
Last week, we were to decide on the size, template, and fabrics. I spent the week scouring the internet for the best template ideas. And I couldn't decide. I have a template in my closet that I have had for awhile, that I could use, but it is bigger than Jo's, and I wondered if I would be disappointed if I did it bigger. The day she showed us the magazine her quilt was featured in, I went out and bought it. I can't find it. But, I am dragging two of my friends down this road with me, and they both have the magazine.
I waffled about the fabric to use. I really like Jo's but I also like the traditional colors. I have about 7-8 yards of this blue. So, now, the final decision. The template I already have and the fabric I already have. done. This will be fun, surely this is a quilt on every body's bucket list. It is on mine.
I have the top ready for borders from the mystery quilt at My Carolina Home. Taking the picture has helped me see the white checkerboard secondary pattern. I am not sure what I will do about borders.
