DWR Challenge

July 18th, 2013

Double Wedding Ring
The NYC Mod Quilters have teamed up with EZ Quilting/Simplicity, Juki and Interweave for the Double Wedding Ring Challenge using the Darlene Zimmerman EZ Quilting/Simplicity Double Wedding Ring rulers.
Double Wedding Ring Challenge

Remember the Dresden Challenge the SLMQD did with Darlene’s Dresden ruler?  This is the same type of challenge and it is open to everyone who wants to participate.  If a challenge isn’t fun enough, there’s a cavalcade of prizes and multiple categories to enter in.

You can read all about the challenge here.

The nice people at Simplicity have given me one set of Darlene’s ruler for a give-away for one lucky winner. More at the end of this post.
DWR tools for Double Wedding Ring Challenge

The rulers can be purchased from participating retailers or you can purchase them directly from Simplicity here (and the optional solid arc here) or from Darlene here (and the optional solid arc here.).  There’s a complete Dresden set plus the single arc ruler if you don’t want to make a pieced arc (like I did).

This is the first time I made a double wedding ring quilt (well, mutant coaster quilt), and I found this tutorial on the Simplicity website helpful.  I was putzing around trying to learn how to use these tools, and hopefully trigger an idea to make something unconventional and new with them.  While I was playing with the rulers, I discovered a 10″ Moda layer cake is perfect for two single arcs and two connector squares.  PERFECT!   I dove into my Moda’s Happy Go Lucky by Bonnie and Camille stash and set out to make a mutant drink coaster.  Four 10″ fabrics + background fabric = one ring.

I made some paper templates to insure I’d cut in just the right spot.

I used Robert Kaufman’s Kona Snow for my background. The tools are marked so I knew exactly what size pieces of Kona I needed to make before cutting out the shapes. Nif. Ty.

I got a little cocky and went pin-commando.  I wanted to use my seam ripper, anyway.

A steam iron, pins (learned that the hard way) and a good spritz of starch is helpful.

Lots and lots of pinning (the perfect job for a Duck Dynasty marathon) and patience and steam and more pinning.

    I think a pieced arc sounds wayyy more fun!! xx

  2. The fabulous elena allegedly said:

    Those rulers looks fantastic. I really like the circle mat you make. Sounds more fun a pieced arc :)
    Thanks for this chance to win

  3. The fabulous Gunilla allegedly said:

    Love the look of both, but i think I would choose a single unit arc! It shows off a little bit more of the fabric.

  4. The fabulous Tanya allegedly said:

    I think a pieced arc sounds like fun, but because I’ve never sewn any curved blocks before, I thnk I’d better start with the single arc and see how it goes! Thanks for the giveaway :-)

  5. The fabulous Sue allegedly said:

    I love the coaster you made, inspiring me to try one myself. Thanks for the giveaway.

  6. The fabulous Cornelia allegedly said:

    wow totally in love of your double wedding ring circle mat,

  7. The fabulous Margaret allegedly said:

    Wow, what a lot of work, but I’m game to try. I like the one you did but also admire the pieced arcs I see in blog land.

  8. The fabulous Sarah Schraw allegedly said:

    Nice! I love your block. I’d love to try a pieced block.

  9. The fabulous Christine allegedly said:

    I love the single piece arc! It seems like a way to ease into all those curved seams which scare the pants off me!

  10. The fabulous Liz allegedly said:

    The pieced arc is SO VERY INTERESTING!

  11. The fabulous Eileen DiPietro allegedly said:

    I love the look of the pieced arc!!

  12. The fabulous Lea allegedly said:

    What a cute little mat! I can see a whole quilt using these fabrics with solid arcs. Wonderful!

  13. The fabulous Barb in MI allegedly said:

    Beautiful! Hm, I opt for single unit arc as a start. Thanks so much!

  17. The fabulous Kathy allegedly said:

    LOVE your project-so cool!

  18. The fabulous Stephanie allegedly said:

    The single arc looks more “fun” I have not done any curved piecing so I might be a bit frightened to try piecing an arc then curve piecing it!

  19. The fabulous Sarah allegedly said:

    Love what you did here. I would probably go with the single unit. At least for my first time. I’ve never done a DWR before. :)

  20. The fabulous Alicia Key allegedly said:

    I made a DWR once, 3 whole rings, pieced. 20 years ago! Ready to try again but i’ll start with solid arc 1st.

  21. The fabulous Sarah allegedly said:

    Love this! Thanks for the chance!

  22. The fabulous Rhonda Smith allegedly said:

    I’ve made a pieced double wedding ring…I think I would make the single arc next time.

  23. The fabulous Kim allegedly said:

    I think it is time for me to tackle a DWR. I have one that my grandmother made but I had to finish it. Quilt and Bind, (it was just the top.) I would love, love, love to win the rulers.

  24. The fabulous Tracy allegedly said:

    I’m really liking the single arc but the pieced arc is really interesting! This is a block that has on my to do list for a long time, but always made me a bit nervous. Thank you so much for your wonderful photos and inspiration and the how to :-) Very helpful! Happy Quilting.

  25. The fabulous Heidi allegedly said:

    I think pieced curves are more fun, unless you do it scrappy ( I mean every arc a differen fabrik ) like your block
    Thanks for the chance

  26. The fabulous Patricia Hersl allegedly said:

    I like the one piece better than the pieced one. Almost Dr Suessy this morning…

  27. The fabulous Carol Miskin allegedly said:

    Would love to try these new rulers!

  28. The fabulous Mary Ann allegedly said:

    Pin commando…that made me laugh. sometimes these blocks have a way of spitting in our faces don’t they! But in the end you won. Such a cute mutant, I may be tempted to try it!

  29. The fabulous chris allegedly said:

    Cute block - as easy as cake? :) Love the solid arcs, but I might try pieced ones. Thanks!

  30. The fabulous Lisa Lisa allegedly said:

    Yours turned out so cool! I love that fabric :) Seriously excited about joining this challenge!

  31. The fabulous KimR allegedly said:

    Love your coaster! THe colors are great! Thanks for the chance to win.

  32. The fabulous Anna allegedly said:

    I think a pieced arc sounds like more work, but it looks so pretty! I’d probably have to choose that :) thanks!

  33. The fabulous Joelle allegedly said:

    I’m all for less work so no piecing. I might make a frisbee.

  34. The fabulous mjb allegedly said:

    What about a crazy pieced arc?

  35. The fabulous Leila allegedly said:

    A single arc would sure be more do-able! :) Love yours!

  36. The fabulous Rhonda aka Quilter in The Gap allegedly said:

    I don’t foresee me making a whole quilt but I do see some potholders and towels trimmed with the arcs. OOO pick me please!!!

  37. The fabulous Abby allegedly said:

    Never done a double wedding ring, but it’s on my bucket list.

  38. The fabulous Elizabeth S allegedly said:

    A pieced arc would be a great challenge for me, and I love challenges!

  39. The fabulous Lee allegedly said:

    Wow - this would be a challenge. I like the look of the single pieced arc! thanks!

  40. The fabulous Allison allegedly said:

    I’d love to try a solid arc! :)

  41. The fabulous Megan allegedly said:

    I haven’t joined in because the wedding ring quilt ‘wasn’t my thing’ but I LOVE yours! I could MAKE this in HAPPY colors! Beautiful, just beautiful!

  42. The fabulous Ronny allegedly said:

    I love this wedding ring quilt. I am new to quilting and really addicted.

  43. The fabulous Anita allegedly said:

    I love your color choices. So do you think that you’ll make a double wedding ring quilt?

  44. The fabulous Margaret Schindler allegedly said:

    I would love to have the templates. I want to make a wedding ring quilt but have not. I would thing single arc are easier to do but I would love to try both ways

  45. The fabulous Gill allegedly said:

    I’ve never made a DWR - I’d try a single first!!

  46. The fabulous Susan allegedly said:

    I love the look of the pieced arcs, but I also think that a modern interpretation of this quilt could be accomplished with solid arcs. Thanks for the opportunity!

  47. The fabulous Karen in Breezy Point allegedly said:

    I’ve never made a DWR, but it looks like those tools would make it a lot easier. Your version is wonderful–as usual!!

  48. The fabulous Maya allegedly said:

    I like the single piece arc. Mostly because I haven’t tried too many curves. Seems like that would be the way to start.

  49. The fabulous Elizabeth J allegedly said:

    I love what you made! I need one of those in my life too!

  50. The fabulous Sivje allegedly said:

    Oh fun! I have never tried this kind of piecing but I want to. These look great!

  51. The fabulous pam allegedly said:

    I love it. I’m not sure though that I’d have patience for even one round. Love the clever little photos. You’re adorable.

  52. The fabulous Kim allegedly said:

    Wow!!! That is the sweetest coaster I’ve ever seen!!
    Now you have me intrigued and I would love to win this ruler set and try to make my own.
    Thanks for the tip about using starch. :)

  53. The fabulous Tammy allegedly said:

    Oh yuur double wedding ring is amazeing. I really love those fabrics you chose to use. Very nice indeed.

  54. The fabulous mean sarah jean allegedly said:

    love your mat!
    i like both the pieced and single arcs.

  55. The fabulous Kathy allegedly said:


  56. The fabulous Pauline allegedly said:

    I just love your choice of fabrics. I think I would like to try to solid arc in a line of fabrics I like (don’t know which one yet). Thanks for the opportunity to enter your drawing.

  57. The fabulous Brandie allegedly said:

    This may be the easiest way to do a DWR. I’ve tried in the past and it was a disaster! You make it look sew easy!
    If I’m lucky, I do a single arc, no more piecing for me! And I’d keep it small.

  58. The fabulous Sheri Salatin allegedly said:

    No, no, no! You can’t show me such things right now!! I have a million others things to do, but…
    Oh, I love this, LOVE the double wedding ring and it’s on my bucket list of quilts to conquer. One day. Some day.
    Love your little trivet. So pretty. I think I should start there. :)
    Thanks for sharing!!

  59. The fabulous Sydney allegedly said:

    The first quilt I ever pieced was a double wedding ring for my sister. I liked it so well I made me one. Both with a single arc and that was over twenty years ago using cardboard templates and a twenty year old pattern. Would love to do one again and try those new templates, they sound fabulous!

  60. The fabulous Andrea allegedly said:

    I love idea of a pieced arc but oh so much work. I’d probably start with a single piece just to get a better feel for the tools and sewing all those curves. Thanks for the chance to win.

  61. The fabulous LINDA allegedly said:


  62. The fabulous Suzanne Mooney allegedly said:

    Your choice of colors is beautiful. Must admit I’m a beginner quilter and curves look quite intimidating! Thanks for such a great giveaway.

  63. The fabulous Tiffany allegedly said:

    Pieced arcs are my favorite. Thanks for all the great tips!

  64. The fabulous Bearpawquilter allegedly said:

    I thought about making a DWR for my son’s wedding quilt and then chickened out and made a Bento Box instead. Maybe these rulers would change my mind. N

  65. The fabulous Sally Knotwell allegedly said:

    I love the DWR pattern…have done it several times, mostly as a one piece arc…would love to try a pieced arc - and doing a single circle looks like the way to go! Thanks so much for the great idea!!!!

    Now, I’d really, really, really love it if you picked me!

  66. The fabulous Jacklynn Grimm allegedly said:

    Your single unit arch looks very doable for a first time DWR and curved seam virgin such as myself. Thanks for the give away!

  67. The fabulous Sarah allegedly said:

    Pieced would be a great way to use scraps but I also enjoy my little bit of sanity I have left so I would go with single.

  68. The fabulous tisha allegedly said:

    Single pieced arc. I’ve got an idea brewing with just that. The seam ripper and I would be spending too much time together with a pieced arc.

  69. The fabulous quiltmom anna allegedly said:

    I have made a continuous arc DWR many years ago now but the pieced arc would indeed be a real challenge. The acrylic templates really do improve accuracy. It is really important to pin and to have your 1/4 inch seam accurate if you want all the pieces to fit and the quilt to lie flat.
    Thanks for the chance to win these beautiful temmplates.
    Regards from Alberta, Canada,

  70. The fabulous Lynda Charlebois allegedly said:

    I have always been intimidated to try a double wedding ring quilt but with the rulers it just might be doable! Since I absolutely adore patch work I would choose that option. I have been busy making my first hexie quilt and can’t wait to start a double wedding ring!


  71. The fabulous Kelie allegedly said:

    I think they both sounds like fun! I love your block!! SO pretty!Thanks for the chance to win!

  72. The fabulous Jamie allegedly said:

    I would like to win b/c I have no idea how to curve-piece anything. Templates in general make me feel squirmy. But your mutant mug rug is pretty darn cute, so perhaps it’s time to learn something new. And win.

  73. The fabulous Kylie C allegedly said:

    I’m a scrappy quilter so I’d love to play with the pieced arcs. I like the open spaces for quilting that DWR gives you.

  74. The fabulous Anya King allegedly said:

    I think it would be fun to try a pieced arc. If I am going to try, I might as well go all in!

  75. The fabulous Nana allegedly said:

    Pieced are so pretty.

  76. The fabulous Paula allegedly said:

    I’d go for pieced arcs definitely! tks fr the chance, x

  77. The fabulous Sandy allegedly said:

    I have never been attracted to Wedding Ring design until I saw this with great fabrics. Definitely pieced arch.

  78. The fabulous Christy allegedly said:

    I think I’d make a pieced arc. Thanks for the giveaway!

  79. The fabulous Windy Sibbersen allegedly said:

    How pretty! I would love to attempt a DWR & these tools look easy enough for me to use (as a beginner quilter) I would use the solid arc - piecing the arcs would be asking for trouble with my current skills!

  80. The fabulous Sheetal allegedly said:

    I can’t quite make up my mind if I prefer the single arc or the pieced one! Right now, I’m inclined to use both and throw in a couple of pieced triangles as well. I think the variety may add some interest!

  81. The fabulous Julia allegedly said:

    I think I’d choose the pieced arc! That way if I destroy the fabric by ripping too frequently, I have an excuse to buy more fabric! ;)

  82. The fabulous Linh allegedly said:

    Yours is really cute thanks for the giveaway!

  83. The fabulous Marty allegedly said:

    That looks beautiful! Thanks for the giveaway!!

  84. The fabulous Shirlene allegedly said:

    Your mat is delicious. Love the fabs And this looks like a nice way to ease into a DWR. I’d love to try the rule set. A wonderful post as always.

  85. The fabulous jenny allegedly said:

    a pieced arc would be a great stash buster…but maybe more challenging than i care to take on?? thanks!!

  86. The fabulous Amy allegedly said:

    I love the double wedding ring quilt. this challenge may be the push I need to try it. It would be awesome to win this today since it’s my 40th birthday!

  87. The fabulous Archie the wonder dog allegedly said:

    I love your coaster/mini quilt! I think I’d make a single unit arc to show off some special fabrics and then another quilt with pieced arcs to show off my scraps!

  88. The fabulous Pam allegedly said:

    My quilting cronies tell me I am a glutton for punishment, which is probably why the pieced arc appeals to me the most. I confess, though, I would love try a combination of both. Is that cheating?

  89. The fabulous Robin (not ever sewing) allegedly said:

    I love your mutant coaster! We have these tiny round side tables in our living room and a mutant coaster would be great on each of them! I’ve never made this block before but I’m sure templates would help :)

  90. The fabulous Carolyn @ Sweet Boater Chick allegedly said:

    Live your dwr! So very pretty. I would totally go for a pieced arc. I am trying to decide what to make for the challenge but I have ideas churning :)

  91. The fabulous Meg allegedly said:

    This wascmade for happy go lucky…so beautiful!

  92. The fabulous Caroline allegedly said:

    I would love to give this a whirl!

  93. The fabulous Cristina allegedly said:

    When you mention all the pinning I think I would have to settle for a single arc. I want a quilt just like your coaster. It is so cute!

  94. The fabulous BrendaLou allegedly said:

    I made one the hard way back in the 70’s…I bet it would be a piece of cake to use these rulers. I’ve loved all of Darlene’s rulers I’ve used before. Please pick me!

  95. The fabulous Patti allegedly said:

    Very neat tools and project to do. I can see this in many fabrics, fun!

  96. The fabulous Lisa allegedly said:

    I have to say a single arc first, THEN once I have the hang of things, on to the pieced arc :)

  97. The fabulous Reena Kaplowitz allegedly said:

    I would do the pieced. mainly because I am insane. Did I miss it? What is the finished size of that mat? Love the fabrics you used and tha nice floral on your ironing board or whatever that was under the pieces. Thanks for the chance to win!

  98. The fabulous tiffany winchester allegedly said:

    I actually plan on entering the DWR Challenge, my first quilt challenge/contest. I REALLY need these rulers!!! I’d love to win them from you, love your blog =). Thanks for the chance to win.

  99. The fabulous Ashley Fessler allegedly said:

    A pieced arc would be what I would do. But I absolutely LOVE double wedding ring quilts. A definite classic that always draws my eye. I would love to make one and love to win the tools to make it super simple!

  100. The fabulous Becky Greene allegedly said:

    I think a pieced arc is really fun-looking, but the word “arc’ in conjunction with sewing scares me a bit. If I won these templates - I would face my fear and give curves a chance. Thanks for the layer cake tip!

  101. The fabulous MC allegedly said:

    I’ve started thinking about my DWR for the challenge and I think I want to try English paper piecing it. Could be awesome or a total disaster, I guess I’ll soon find out. I think it will be a mix of pieced and single unit arcs for me.

  102. The fabulous Lindsay allegedly said:

    I think the pieced arc sounds fun!

  103. The fabulous Laura allegedly said:

    Your mutant drink coaster looks fabulous in Happy Go Lucky. I would love to attempt a DWR.

  104. The fabulous Margret allegedly said:

    It’s really been fun to see the different styles of DWR quilts throughout this blog tour. You asked about the pieced vs the single arc - I don’t know what the difference is yet. I need to research that more. Does one make a more square-ish ring perhaps? I will go to Darlene Z site and the Simplicity site to see if I can find an answer (because I really want to know!)

  105. The fabulous cat stone allegedly said:

    I love double wedding rings but have never been game to make one. I like the single fabric arcs - not only is there less piecing but the larger pieces can be used to showcase beautiful fabrics like you have done with the Happy Go Lucky fabrics.

  106. The fabulous Annie allegedly said:

    Looks amazing. Always wanted to make one. could never quite figure out how.

  107. The fabulous Anita allegedly said:

    Love your block and choice of colors! Thanks for the giveaway :)

  108. The fabulous Melissa allegedly said:

    I love the idea of using a layer cake for this design. I’ve made a pieced pickledish mini before which was cool but it would take forever to make an entire quilt like that. The solid arc is something I’d love to try next. Your mini is super cute!

  109. The fabulous Mary Ann allegedly said:

    It turned out great, Monica! I’m still cracking up about the term “pin commando” lol! :D

  110. The fabulous Marisa allegedly said:

    Pieced arc for sure. Thanks for the opportunity!

  111. The fabulous elsa allegedly said:

    Really sweet wedding ring block you’ve made. I think I’ll go with the pieced arc.
    Thanks so much for the giveaway!

  112. The fabulous Bonnie Larson allegedly said:

    I love this pattern and have always wanted to try it. This may just be what I need to try it out. Thanks so much for sharing.

  113. The fabulous Barb@Witsend allegedly said:

    I like the way the non-pieced arc displays the fabric.

  114. The fabulous Judy Marchand allegedly said:

    That’s awesome

  115. The fabulous Gene Black allegedly said:

    I think a pieced arc sounds more interesting but maybe more work…not sure about “fun” LOL

  116. The fabulous kritta22 allegedly said:

    Gosh with the right fabrics the pieced one sounds pretty but you really cant go wrong with a single arc. Thank you for hosting the giveaway. You quilted arc is gorgeous!

  117. The fabulous Brenda J. allegedly said:

    Loved the fabric and colors of your DWR project. I hope to make one with bright, scrappy “made” with the single arc template. Thanks for sharing!

  118. The fabulous Shannon allegedly said:

    Single!! Plus, you are awesome.

  119. The fabulous vickie warburton allegedly said:

    Love that! I like that cute little box too. Where did you find that?

  120. The fabulous Deb@asimplelifequilts allegedly said:

    Thanks so much for a chance at the rulers… love DWR quilts and hope to attempt one someday!

  121. The fabulous jeanne allegedly said:

    I think a pieced arc has more possiblities of fun.

  122. The fabulous Mika allegedly said:

    I like double wedding quilts design. I would like to use a single unit arc this time:)

  123. The fabulous Anne allegedly said:

    I love the single unit arc!! I think it looks so modern!

  124. The fabulous Miranda E allegedly said:

    So pretty! I’d love to try that!

  125. The fabulous Cecilia allegedly said:

    I like the looks of a pieced arc, but the single arc looks easier. :-)

  126. The fabulous Nancy H allegedly said:

    I assumed I’d want to make a pieced arc ( being the chronic bit-off-more-than-I-can-chew type) but I love your solid arcs. Maybe it’s the B&C fabric that swayed me!

  127. The fabulous Ether Bourne allegedly said:

    Very cute mega-coaster. Makes me want to make my own.

  128. The fabulous mims allegedly said:

    i want to try both!

  129. The fabulous Donna Joy allegedly said:

    The single one piece arch is the one I would like to try. Oh thanks for letting us know about the 10″ squares or layer cakes. Now to decide on a background color.

  130. The fabulous martha mumaw allegedly said:

    A pieced arc seems more fun.

  131. The fabulous jackie allegedly said:

    I think I would try the single arc first. I love the more modern look!

  132. The fabulous Christie S. allegedly said:

    That looks so fun! I think I prefer the solid arc.

  133. The fabulous Ann in NC allegedly said:

    I think the pieced one would be pretty, but…”fun” to make??? Your sample is great! That might be the style to try first!

  134. The fabulous Dee allegedly said:

    Definitely both! Would love, love, love to win the tools! Your coaster on steroids makes me smile really yay big! Awesome!

  135. The fabulous Debbie Gallett allegedly said:

    I haven’t made a double wedding ring block in 25 years. I like the look of the single arc.

  136. The fabulous karen allegedly said:

    Looking good Monica! I really like the pieced arcs but I worry that my OCD piecing would kick in and I’d be hospitalized!

  137. The fabulous Yvonne allegedly said:

    love the DWR quilt and an opportunity to win a set of the tools. Thanks for a great giveaway.

  138. The fabulous Ivona allegedly said:

    I love the pieced arc ! Greetings from Slovakia and thanks for the giveaway :-)

  139. The fabulous LoriL allegedly said:

    The easiest route would be to do the single piece arc. But I am always up for a challenge so I would choose the multiple arc version. Would love to win a set of templates.

  140. The fabulous Patty E allegedly said:

    I prefer the look of a pieced arc but yours are adorable in those fabrics as a single arc. Thanks for the giveaway

  141. The fabulous Vicky allegedly said:

    Would love to give this a try. I love scrappy projects.

  142. The fabulous Auntie Clark allegedly said:

    I think I should start with the single arc, but I think I would like the look of a pieced arc. I would love to win the templates so I could make the double wedding ring. Thanks.

  143. The fabulous Pam allegedly said:

    I’d love to try the single arc. Thanks for the chance!

  144. The fabulous Erin allegedly said:

    Since fun for me is maximized when frustration is minimized and I have never even attempted a wedding ring quilt, I think the single arc would be more fun to start. Thanks for the chance!

  145. The fabulous Heather allegedly said:

    I’ve seen an old double wedding ring that had the arcs pieced with triangles, not sure I’m up for that but it would be a great way to show of favorite fabric.

  146. The fabulous Kim allegedly said:

    The pieced arc reminds me of a quilt my great grandmother made by hand!

  147. The fabulous Barbara allegedly said:

    Oooh, I loved the idea of a pieced arc! I’m so excited for this contest!

  148. The fabulous Lisa E allegedly said:

    Love your block. I would try a pieced arc.

  149. The fabulous Susanne allegedly said:

    Looks really lovely!

  150. The fabulous Jaime allegedly said:

    Ahhhh - I would LOVE to win a set of these rulers. I’ve been working on a quilt for a friend using a paper pattern (she got married in May, so I’m a bit behind) and have had the worst luck with my seams matching up. I can’t give up because I’ve promised it to her but it’s been a close call. Thanks for the helpful links, I’m going to check those out now and see if I can figure out what I’ve been doing wrong.

  151. The fabulous Michelle allegedly said:

    Because your version is so darn cute I have to enter the giveaway!!! Thank you for having it.

  152. The fabulous Robbin allegedly said:

    Being as I live on the edge, a pieced arc sounds like my style. Thanks for the inspiration.

  153. The fabulous Patty allegedly said:

    I have a DWR on my To Do List. I’d love to make one with pieced arcs.

  154. The fabulous Leah allegedly said:

    I would love to try a Double Wedding Ring!

  155. The fabulous Megan C allegedly said:

    One of my favorite quilt patterns. Love that there is templates available.

  156. The fabulous Peggy A allegedly said:

    Ooooh, gorgeous! I think I’d try a single arc first, then try a pieced one. What fun!

Farting around with needle & thread and then blogging about it.
