Online Interactive Workshop: Double Wedding Ring Block 

We're delighted to be hosting this Double Wedding Ring quilt block workshop with the wonderfully engaging & hugely talented Lucy Brennan. Here's our star lady to tell you all about it!...

Introduction by Lucy:-

The Double Wedding Ring is a beautiful, traditional block that is associated with love, romance and of course marriage. For fabric lovers, this is such a fun block to play with, plan layouts and stitch! While it may seem daunting at first glance, this classic design is a perfect hand-sewn project and I will guide you through the process. This is a bucket list block, one that all quilters will recognise and want to sew. It works wonderfully with either traditional or modern fabrics and this class will encourage you to examine how you choose fabrics and inspire you to produce your own stunning Double Wedding Ring!

What You Will Learn in this Online Interactive Workshop:-

  • Explore different placements of colours and fabrics to create the block
  • Glue basting and thread basting the various shapes with thread or with
  • English Paper Piecing - how to sew the shapes together, plus an alternative hand piecing method using the paper pieces as templates. You can use either method!
  • Other ways to use the paper templates
  • How to adapt the block design to create different looks
  • Stitch one block or many
  • Explore different placements of colours and fabrics to create the block

Skill Level for this Online Interactive Workshop:-

Suitable for beginners and experienced sewists alike.

Material requirements for this Online Interactive Workshop:-

Double Wedding Ring paper pieces can be sourced as follows:-

This set makes 12” finished blocks (US set is 12.5”). You can order different sets based on the number of blocks you wish to make. Remember you can re-use paper pieces if you are careful. The acrylic templates are not necessary for the class.

Fabric requirements for this Online Interactive Workshop:-

A good selection of different fabrics, you might want to use a mix of prints and solids. You can use scraps or fat quarters. We will only use a small amount of fabric in the class and the final amount needed will depend on the number of blocks you want to make. The middle of the block is the largest, for that shape you will need at least an 8” square of fabric.

Equipment requirements for this Online Interactive Workshop:-

  • General sewing kit and fine thread, such as Aurifil 50 weight.
  • Hand sewing needles, Milliners #10 or #11 are Lucy’s favourite for EPP
  • Scissors
  • Sewline Glue Pen or similar
  • Fine Pins
  • Wonder Clips
  • Washi Tape (optional)

Pattern Information relevant to this Online Interactive Workshop:-


Additional Information relevant to this Online Interactive Workshop:-

Whilst you may be tempted to start basting/sewing when you get your paper pieces, please resist! As we will be discussing layout options and how to use colours in the class, your fabric choices may change as a result. Lucy will also be sharing how to baste the various shapes in different ways, so we can do that step together.

Remember, this is slow-sewing and you are obviously not expected to complete the project during class! If you are choosing to hand-piece, please still buy paper pieces unless you have other double wedding ring templates you can use.
