Quilting Double Wedding Ring

I started quilting on the Double Wedding Ring quilt for my friend… WOW, my shoulders were not ready for this! It didn’t help that my setup was not right – I was originally working on the small table in my sewing room but I quickly realized I needed a bigger table to hold the weight of the quilt, so I moved to the dining room

This definitely helped with moving the quilt under the needle but then I realized the height of the table and the height of my chair were not good!! My shoulders were killing me after only a few minutes of quilting!! I tried a few different chairs before I moved my sewing chair out to the dining room… ahhhhhhhh, that made such a difference!! I aslo switched corners so I could watch TV while quilting 😉

It’s not pretty, but it’s only temporary!! HA!!

I completed all the quilting on just one of the blocks in the center to see what it would look like… and… I love it!! So does my friend 🙂

I’m going to complete quilting just the echo lines inside and outside of all the circles first, I’ve got about a quarter of them done so far. There are 63 circles which I have to echo twice, then echo the interior shapes. Once that’s done I will go back and fill in all the flowers… Oy, what a job!!! I have no idea what to charge for all this but I’m sure it won’t be enough :-p

I’m still plugging away on WW… I’ve lost a total of 8.6 lbs since restarting in mid April. I’m definitely making better choices and staying away from high fat, high sugar foods.

That’s about all for now, have a great rest of your weekend.

Wishing all the awesome Dads out there a wonderful day!!
