Believe it or not, I am a male, and I do quilting. I have over 55 quilts I've completed.
It's an age old tradition, mostly lost.
What I need, to find, is the center block pattern for a DWR quilt. (Double wedding ring.) I made a four block quilt with a 4 inch border from a 20"
block pattern, but it's not quite right. It puckers in the middle.
Yes, I can order the templates, I know. I prefer to figure it out on my own. I want the pattern to make my own templates, but all the quilting books
I have exclude the center block.
This is the pattern I have:
I need the one like this:
This is the pattern I am missing:
(That is not to scale!)
I have the rest of the block, save that pattern. Grr.
Here are a few other designs I've done:
Baby Blanket (Niece).
Woven Borders. (Nephew).
Scrap Patch (Cancer Survivor).
Snail Trail. (Friend.)
Runes #2 (Embroidered).
I've done Crazy Path's and Drunkard's Paths, so I have sewing on a curve down pat. I made my own stilletto. I just am searching high and low for
that center block to scale.
Feel free to add any quilting related experiences. Quilting is a lost art. Let's bring it back!
