Craftsy BOM and still double wedding ring

Yesterday I had a weird day, I only had to go out for a few hours and had most of the afternoon and evening for sewing, yeeehaaaw! I kept working on the double wedding ring blocks to see what it would look like when I had the blocks sewn together. I was watching The  Italian Job, How to Lose a Guy in 10 days, Lincoln Lawyer (love Matthew McConaughey!) and then Seven, but had to turn that  off at 11:30 so I would be able to get up this morning. 
Back to the blocks! I've found a way to trick my seams and I wasn't afraid of using my seam ripper when  the patches didn't line up exactly. I even went the extra mile to adjust the seam allowance in cases to make better seam intersections by moving my needle left and right. I took a photo what it looks like now, I don't think I'll keep going in this direction. There's no point of making more blocks, I can see   now how  it'll turn out if  I make the quilt this way. I also changed my cutting technique and instead of 6 strips, I've only stripped 5 and cut the arks from that in an angle.

The 4 blocks together look like this:

My helper for editing was lap cat, Szundi!

I could only take a picture of him with my phone since my regular camera needs 2 hands and I had to hold the laptop with 1 hand and take the pic with the other.
It's raining here... again! I feel like we moved to the UK! :) We had no rain for over a month and now it's been raining since Saturday night. At least we won't have to water the flowers outside and the grass is green! :)

I  also got an email from Craftsy that they have the new BOM video up for May. I didn't know they have a BOM so I went to check it out. Sign up is for free! Amy Gibson is making the blocks and I watched the January video and decided that I will start to make the quilt. I might even use up one of the precious collections I wanted to use in the My Precious QAL. I think I have something in mind, will have to scan the fabrics and post a picture later! If you want to do something fun, check out the Craftsy BOM website!

Blog for you later! :)


  1. I like your blocks - hard for me to spot any issues in your photos. Do you find it easier with the strip pieced sections than with piecing them individually?

    Love seeing your variations!

  2. Your blocks looks great to me. I love the scrappy with the solid where they meet.

  3. I like your blocks, but better than the pattern, I like the coloring and shading. I love that some are bright and bold, and some are very slightly colored! A whole quilt like this will be wonderful! Good Job!!!

  4. Kati - thanks for sharing at the Minutes for Me Linky Party! Love the double wedding ring blocks!

  5. Love seeing what you've done with your blocks.

    Also, I wanted you to know that I've nominated you for the Liebster award - find the details on my blog

  6. I LOVE this one!!! I could never do such a precise work! xox

    1. Ha! I was just looking at it Yesterday thinking what the heck am I supposed to do with it? :)))) Too bad you're married already! :))) But you can have it if you want!

    2. Oh, and don't say never... you can make more difficult things than this!!


I am truly glad you visited, and a special thanks to You for taking your time to leave a comment! It always makes me smile when people write to me. Thanks, from the bottom of my heart! :)
