it looks like a double wedding ring

It is time for the double wedding ring quilt along. Every Wednesday, Jo of Jo's country junction encourages us to make a double wedding ring quilt, which has been on my bucket list.

I spent a good bit of time finishing a batch of about 40 arcs for the second side of a melon. I was adding an angled piece to each end of the 6 piece A arcs. In Jo's pattern there is just piece A, but using my template, I discovered that I need both an A and a B for the full arc.

Last week's assignment was to add a square to each end as well. I was able to use a standard  2 1/2 inch square for the square.

And it was time to add the second side of the melon. It didn't look like it was going to work at all.

But, hooray, we have a recognizable part of the double wedding ring quilt.

 and another - this part is very rewarding. I could just stare at it for hours. Maybe, I will just carry it around with me all day, and whip it out whenever I need a boost.

So far the quilt along has been great. The instructions are thorough, and the pictures are so helpful. And Jo has done a wonderful job of breaking down the tasks into believable chunks of work.
