Have you ever wanted to make a Double Wedding Ring Quilt? Well here is your chance!!!
My friend Victoria, asked me to be part of this blog hop and I have also partnered with EZ Quilting for this challenge!!
First before we get into the challenge let me show you what I have done so far.
I decided to make a three ring quilt as a table runner. It is not joined together yet because I need to switch around 4 of the little squares so they alternate. But once I do that, I am home free.
As many of you know, I LOVE Kaffe Fassett fabrics so much, I had to use them for this little project.
I bet you want to hear the rules?
