What are you most proud of? The detail. Instead of machine stitching diamonds as the pattern suggests, I drew my own 'leaf/vine' design with air-erasable pen and hand sewed each section differently.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It takes time. Make sure you sew keep seam allowance as exact as you can. DON'T use stretchy fabrics or be careful cutting on the bias - the small pieces loose shape and move easily. TIP - (I was told too late for this project) - Spray patches with starch after cutting to help retain their shape.Above all - have fun, you can un-do any mistakes.

I would love to make this for my daughter & my future son in law, but I don't know if I could do this.. I've only made one other before. Any advice?

Jump in! I did a wedding ring quilt as my first large quilt, 20+ years later it is still on my bed. It wasn't perfect, but all the daughters in law have asked for it. LOL

I am looking for the templets for the double wedding quilting pattern and directions.

The link above is not working anymore, I've just looked it up again and it's moved to: http://www.mccallsquilting.com/patterns/details.html?idx=6913&idx=6913&sid=500875238783d79b I'll try to fix the link above. Good luck! It is a little fiddly but definitely worth the effort. It's the only pattern I've found with 11 segments in the arc and I'm on my second quilt using this pattern. Taking me much longer this time, I must add. :) Jo
