The very golden, Golden Wedding Ring Two Ringy Dingies top is done!! I made my goal of finishing it this week and didn’t want to wait to post this. Edited December 23, 2018 – thanks to the efforts of a very good friend who has amazing skills with photography apps, this picture is much better than the one I had originally used.
The colours in this photo aren’t even close to true – finding a place to photograph anything large is difficult in the winter and the lighting is less than perfect. Oh, to have a design wall and a bank of daylight bulbs above it!
This close-up photo is much more accurate as it was taken under a daylight bulb. I ran out of the gold I had used in the Two Ringy Dingies top and didn’t have enough for the setting pieces around the edges. So I found a fabric in my stash that worked well enough, I think. You can definitely see it’s different in this photo, but it’s not that evident when I look at it from even arm’s length away.
I’m glad there are two sizes of the Inklingo Golden Wedding Ring collections. It was fun making one of these little tops in each size just to get a feel for the difference and now that I’ve made one with both the 12″ and 16″ sizes, I’m surprised – because I think I prefer sewing the larger size. While I don’t have plans to make a larger Golden Wedding Ring quilt quite yet, I know I will come back to this as I’d love to make one that was more pinks and greens and soft colours.
Now that that top is done, I’m going to be off to the races with the Can Can top. I have been itching to really get going on it!
I love this shot of Baxter in profile.
