It's time for Bloggers Quilt Festival over at Amy's Creative Side! I don't have a new quilt to debut for the the festival this year, but I thought I'd share one of my favorite finishes from over the past few months.
I made this double wedding ring quilt for my cousin and her new husband for their wedding this past August. I learned a lot while making this quilt, the first being how how to piece an entire quilt of curves! While I most definitely uttered quite a few curses, and had far too many pin pricks to my fingers, it was 110% worth it in the end.
This quilt is by far the most challenging quilt I've ever tackled, and really made me feel like a real quilter, as silly as that may seem. I really felt like this quilt was a confidence boost, and made me feel like there is no pattern I can't attempt.
It was definitely hard to part with this quilt, but it was nice to see it going to such a loving new home. I free motion quilted this, which is my absolute favorite way to quilt, and added some loopy hearts for the new love birds.
I can't say that I will be jumping to make another DWR quilt anytime in the near future, but I am so glad that I tackled this, and proved to myself I can do it!
