One night a month


One night a month I get an evening off to go sewing! I go the the local PWS Sew This and That and I work on my Double Wedding Ring quilt.

DWR cutting

I have been going since February and have only missed one night because of sickness, so that is 5 nights so far. It has taken this long to get the cutting finished. 1154 pieces for the insides of the arc and 580 ends for the arcs. I only work on this quilt on my one night off and for about 2.5 – 3 hours.

DWR test layout

This time I took my sewing machine along so I could start sewing! There are 254 or 288 arcs, it depends what size I end up doing but so far I am aiming for the biggest size. I am using the Marti Michell templates and so far it has been a breeze!

This is my “no pressure” project! I am not in a hurry to have it finished so I am enjoying taking my time and not feeling any pressure!

Bye for now, Jess
