Class Description

Learn Paper Piecing and many helpful tips for curved piecing to make this “Big Mama” of a Double Wedding Ring quilt.  We will play with techniques for design variations, including designs from quilts, Bright Lights, Big City (p.36), Strings of Florid Blooms (p.48), and Retro Poly Mod (p. 44), found in the book – Double Wedding Rings: Traditions Made Modern, by Victoria Findlay Wolfe (C&T Publishing).

Supply List

  • Double Wedding Rings: Traditions Made Modern Book $22 (recommended to have for class)
  • Variety of Fabrics (14"x14" scraps, fat quarters and half yard cuts work great for this quilt)  To create my 90x90” Bright Lights, Big City quilt, I used about 15 yards.
    • FABRIC NOTE: Select a color way to build a collection of fabrics to work with.  To create the movement and excitement of this quilt, lots of supporting fabrics are used.  Be sure to include contrasting colors so paper piecing points will stand out.  This is a scrap quilt, so the more fabrics you bring, the better your quilt will look!
  • Sewing machine, cord, and foot pedal
  • Thread
  • Scissors
  • Rotary cutters: Smaller size rotaries work better for cutting curves - 28mm
  • Cutting mat: 24” x 36”
  • Pins
  • Seam ripper
  • All your basic sewing equipment
  • For your design wall: Batting or felt to lay out your design, and to carry it home in. (at least 40”x80”)
