WIP Wednesday No. 9

Shabby Wedding Rings
Is there anything more satisfying than neat piles of freshly cut fabric?

These are the former Frosted Window Pane fabrics which are now going to be made into a Double Wedding Ring quilt. I adore these fabrics and can't wait to see what they look like. 

I am a little extremely scared about actually starting to piece this top. Scrappy is a step out of my comfort zone and curves make me shake in my shoes.

I don't think I've touched my hexagons in over a month but Tonya over at Hillbilly Handiworks has started a new hexagon project and it's spurred me into action.

So I've cut a pile of new diamond papers and cracked open the handy-hexagon box. Time to tack some new fabrics.

Other Projects
  • Strawberry Patch - No progress. The lesson here is that if you tidy something away, you will forget about it all together. It's now back on my desk and making me feel guilty.
  • Neutral jelly roll bear paws - waiting to be Long-arm quilted at work. 
  • It's a hoot and Antique quilt - No progress. 

Why not pop over to Freshly pieced to see what everyone else is up to this Wednesday.


  1. I think we must be alike in some ways because I am not a big scrappy quilt person either. Never have done any scrap quilts. The Hexies will be my sort of first. Glad you are fired back up about them. :)

  2. Those look like great fabrics for a Double Wedding Ring. I agree, I love to see them all neatly cut and stacked. Happy piecing!

  3. Those will make beautiful wedding rings! :o) Good luck on the hex project!

  4. That fabric is so beautiful...good luck on your Double Wedding Ring. Enjoyed my visit.
