Double Wedding Ring Improv

After meeting Victoria Findlay Wolfe in Vero Beach earlier this year, and purchasing a copy of her Double Wedding Ring book, I came home and started the process of paper piecing her “Bright Lights Big City” pattern, an improv version of the New York Beauty and Double Wedding Ring.


I am getting my groove back on and am going to focus on finishing up the arcs for this quilt (and it looks like I need a new camera, what a blur)!

pineapple quilt block

I took a class last week with Nancy Bills on making pineapple blocks.  Wow, is she a great teacher!  Seaside Piecemakers quilt guild brought her to Florida for a couple days of classes.

Here is the one block I made in class, and I have finished 3 more and will be turning it into a table runner, hopefully today.  I am so loving the red/burnt orange fabric by Paula Nadelstern that I dug out of my stash for this class.

Love this time of year when our orchids are exploding.  Every morning brings a new mass of color to our patio.
