Marti Michell weekend retreat--Double Wedding Ring
Double Wedding Ring
The Double Wedding Ring is one of the most easily recognized quilt designs in existence, but the curved seams may create quilt-making apprehension. Use the From Marti Michell Double Wedding Ring Template Set to accurately cut and mark the pieces and a careful 1/4” seam allowance to sew. Follow Marti’s tips and instructions and suddenly you’ll feel confidant. Remove the mystique of curved seams without gimmicks. Double Wedding Ring variations like Pickle Dish and Lafayette’s Orange Peel included.
