Golden Wedding Ring 1

In what is probably no surprise to those who know my love for the soft shabby chic colours, I chose one of the 5.75″ repeat fabrics to use for the first Golden Wedding Ring project. I just added some pinks – of course – for the diamonds and a cream background fabric along with a green/blue batik for the arcs and I was set.

It was fabulous fun to piece! Loads of continuous piecing opportunities and, of course, curved piecing made it really enjoyable to make this first ring.

The back, after pressing but before grading of the seams which I intend to do now before I start the next part of the little top.

After making this with the 12″ Golden Wedding Ring collection, I want to make another top using the 16″ collection and a more dramatic fabric for fussy cutting/printing. As tempted as I am to print for that second top right now, I’m determined to finish this first little one before doing so. Stay tuned – because I think we all know my power to resist projects like this is very, very limited!

Baxter was lounging in his house yesterday. He has spent more time in there now that the weather has been cooling off.

    • Thank you very much! Inklingo is the best tool for quilters imaginable – I’m so glad Linda invented it! Golden Wedding Ring is a fabulous design, but I would not want to make it any way but with Inklingo.
