The Double Wedding Ring Quilt - Cut in No Time

The Double Wedding Ring  is a classic quilt block and probably the quilt block that brings the most thoughts of love and romance. The interlocking circles of the Double Wedding Ring quilt have been found on pottery as far back as the ancient Roman Empire. The first published Double Wedding Ring quilt pattern was published in the 1920's.

For years grandmothers, mothers, and friends have made Double Wedding Ring quilts for wedding presents. Of course this beautiful block is not only for weddings. It makes a beautiful quilt for a multitude of uses.

You can cut this quilt block with ease with the GO! Double Wedding Ring die.  Keep reading to learn how to cut and sew this fun block.

The GO! Double Wedding Ring is a two die set. Start by labeling your shapes like we did below.

Pick a variety of fabrics to cover the small pieces and the C shape. Since we are piecing the arcs, we won't need the F shape, however cut one to use for a tip later on... Place the mat over the die and roll through the cutter.

Place fabric over the A shape.

TIP: While we aren't using the F shape from the die board because we are piecing the arcs, you can use it to make sure your seam allowance is correct. Lay your pieced arc over the F shape to make sure they are the same size. If not, adjust your seam allowance. Next, grab two B shapes. Mark 1/4" points at each corner of the B shape. Pin the B Shapes to each side of one of the arcs you just pieced.
