Double Wedding Ring Progress

I've been recuperating from surgery and using the time to work on hand piecing my Double Wedding Ring, while watching re-runs and live Bonnie Hunter Quiltcams. Bonnie has a wonderful blog and is into scrappy quilting in a big way.

This project was supposed to be finished last October for my husbands 50th birthday, I guess life gets in the way - and other sewing projects.

I'm enjoying the journey and that is the main thing.

I'm now up to the last row, it will be five x five, and I think I know how I'll finish it.
I'm thinking of a cream floating border then a border with flying geese and square in a square blocks. I'll then do another cream floater and a final border of the feature fabric which are T Model cars - just one of my husbands hobbies.

In other news - we are finally getting the new shed. Bobcat has been in for two days and the concrete should be poured by end of this week, all going well. The shed itself is due for delivery and erection mid September - can't wait, it's been a long time plan finally coming to fruition.

Happy sewing

I hope all went well, Jennifer. You have really got a lot done on the quilt. Yours will probably be finished before mine! Take care of yourself. Hugs, Christine xx

Looking good Jen, It's it fun to be able to look and listen to Bonnie while we sew.
