Wednesday Tute 09 – Double Wedding Ring

Welcome back! This is our 9th Wednesday Tute.

Yesterday we listed 25 Signs You are an Inklingo Quilter.

Here’s another one:

26. You know how much faster and easier it is to sew Double Wedding Ring with Inklingo than it was in the olden days with templates!


Double Wedding Ring Challenge


Several Inklingo quilters have written to me about making quilts for the NYC Mod Quilter’s Double Wedding Ring Challenge.

It is a wonderful challenge.

  • The rules are wide open.
  • It’s international, just like Inklingoists.
  • There are many possible sizes, even as small as ONE ring!
  • Traditional OR modern.
  • Enter up to three times!
  • Lots of time to enter before December 1.

One of the fabulous prizes is a Juki sewing machine! Just think how many quilts you could sew with a new machine and Inklingo!

They mention acrylic templates but any method is fine.


Print DWR on fabric with Inklingo

Let’s show what we can do when we print the shapes on fabric with Inklingo!


Victoria Findlay Wolfe has a charming video on YouTube explaining the wide-open rules. 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.


I think we all have a clear idea of what a “traditional quilt” is.

What is a “modern quilt?” I googled it and found The Modern Quilt Guild’s definition of modern quilting.

Modern quilters work in different styles and define modern quilting in different ways, but several characteristics often appear which may help identify a modern quilt. These include, but are not limited to: the use of bold colors and prints, high contrast and graphic areas of solid color, improvisational piecing, minimalism, expansive negative space, and alternate grid work. “Modern traditionalism” or the updating of classic quilt designs is also often seen in modern quilting.

Is this bold and graphic enough to be “modern?”

I’m pretty sure this is traditional, but look at those unusual corners. Hmmmmmm. Bonus points for a brave scalloped binding!

I used Robert Kaufman “Damask Rose” for the fussy cut centers.


Click on the video to play.

When I was designing the DWR quilts for this video, I knew that no matter how complicated they look, any quilter can get beautiful results when the cutting and stitching lines are printed on the fabric.

Confidence. A wonderful thing. Let your artistic vision come to life!

This video might get your creative juices flowing, but here will be more design ideas on the blog in the next few weeks.

We are hoping our little tutes will inspire you to enter a quilt.


Sew Double Wedding Ring by Machine or by Hand.


The Inklingo Double Wedding Ring Design Book is at least a $20 value but it is on sale for only $10, and you can get it FREE if you also buy the shapes to print on fabric. (Details)

The Inklingo design book (PDF download) includes Double Wedding Ring sewing instructions. It will help you design with Double Wedding Ring and Pickle Dish shapes too.

You can sew Double Wedding Ring by hand or by machine or a bit of both. We think that is the modern approach, even if you are sewing a traditional design.

There are several articles on the blog already which will help you with the challenge.

You can see all of them listed in “Topics” in the right sidebar.
