T Model Fabric - and now the start of a Double Wedding Ring

1st ring - happy with shape and colour
Since making the clothing and the handbag, I've now started on a Double Wedding Ring quilt for my DH's significant birthday in a couple of years.

Yes, I need that long to hand piece and hopefully hand quilt this for him. Here is ring number 1 - just wanted to test the colours and test that the rings will be round. It is looking very promising. I have not yet pressed it with an iron

This is not going to be one of those lovely floral colourwash Double Wedding Rings - maybe one day I'll make one for myself ;-)

I'd love to hear your comments.

Happy in sewing

Perfect fabric colours for this project for you Hubby. The car fabric could not be any more suitable. The block on its own looks like a car steering wheel. lol.
I'm sure this quilt will look fantastic once completed.

The shape was perfectly executed. I just don't know if it is right for your project. The shift between colors is very defined.
