Let the celebration begin. The Double Wedding Ring is now a top. Woo Hoo! I finished it this afternoon. Happy Dance, HAPPY DANCE!!!! You can't tell I am excited, can you. It has been a long haul. I believe I started doing some work on it in March. I have doggedly plodded along when it seemed the end was nowhere in sight. 2,094 circles, 288 petals and lots and lots of pieces later, it has all come together.
I had quite a time wrestling with it as I had to sew the rows together and then applique the pink circle in the middle of the corner joints. I kept reminding myself that I did not have to do it fast, just that I had to do it. There's that plodding along again. One trick that made it easier was to lower and place my ironing board to the immediate left of my sewing machine. Having a cloth top it kept the quilt top from sliding off and I didn't have to chase it all over the place.
Here is a teaser photo of the top. I want to get it quilted before I show it all spread out in its glory. My goal is to quilt it in October. I have quilts I need to quilt before this goes on the machine.
Oh, I am so happy because now I will get to count 14 yards out and I will be in the black again. Happy day.
