DWR Finish

My DWR is finished!  I can't believe it.  I would never have dreamed I could do a double wedding ring.  I'll admit it really scared me at first.  But a challenge had been given and I love a challenge.  
When I started this challenge I thought I would only make a table runner.  But I feel in love with the design and it grew and grew until I had a queen size quilt for my bed.  
I've had it on my bed for the last few days and every time I see it there it makes me smile.  Sleeping under it is heavenly.  So whether I win the challenge or not this quilt is a winner in my book.

  3. Gorgeous. DWR is a lovely design. I bought a art piece with the design for one of my early wedding anniversaries but I haven't aspired to piece the quilt, I am kind of afraid of sewing curves. I have sewn them for inset sleeves and hated every stitch. though , I won't say never....

  12. Challenges are wonderful, aren't they? I often leap to them, sometimes finish and sometimes don't. Cheers on your lovely finish. One win is finishing; here's to the other. (I can say that as I didn't join this one. LOL)

  16. It is wonderful! Something I haven't even thought of attempting yet. But, it does help us to stretch ourselves. I am doing that with my first hand appliquéd quilt now. I just have the center medallion to do. It does feel good when you accomplish something special!
