Class Description

Steeped in history, the Double Wedding Ring pattern is nearly a century old, but it has never been more accessible. Join quilt shop owner and teacher Gail Kessler as she guides you step-by-step through approachable techniques for creating a breathtaking Double Wedding Ring quilt top. Discover three ways to piece Double Wedding Ring blocks: traditional piecing methods, precision foundation paper piecing and using plastic templates that speed up the process. Along the way, Gail will help you simplify curved piecing, teach you different setting techniques and inspire you with ideas for quilting your own Double Wedding Ring projects. You can even create your heirloom quilt top using the same fabric Gail works with in class.
