A Study in Batiks: Scarlett's Double Wedding Ring is an all batik quilt made with my innovative paperpieced pattern. I used Fundation, a lightweight inkjet printable interfacing, instead of paper so I could leave it in each machine stitched block. Study is machine quilted in cream rayon thread.
Close up of A Study in Batiks showing the machine quilting with creme rayon thread. It was fun to use all bright batiks for the four paperpieced center blocks and eight paperpieced border blocks, and a jelly roll of light batiks for the background. Look at the color groupings to see the individual blocks.

"Here are the pictures of my double wedding ring quilt that I said I would send. I finally finished it. I am including a close up of the heart motif stenciled area too. I hope you like the pictures. My husband picked out all the fabrics since this quilt is for him and opted to go with just three fabrics for the top panel. Thanks again for creating such an easy to use pattern." Jaime Ricard
Using Scarlett's Double Wedding Ring pattern, you can make your own gorgeous table runners very easily! Just use the border templates, with four of the side border blocks and four of the corner border blocks making an 18" x 42 " tablerunner with three complete wedding rings.
Here's a sample layout done in Christmas colors, with a one inch border strip added around the three wedding rings, to make a 20" x 44 " tablerunner.
If you want a more traditional look, then leaving off the fabric on the outside edges of the paperpiecing templates will give you a curved edge 18" x 42 " tablerunner.
Here's a layout diagram showing where to place the border and corner templates for the three wedding ring tablerunner. The outer 1" strips are optional, just in case you want to have a bit more fabric around the paperpieced wedding rings.
From a November 8th 2007 workshop at A Quilter's Gathering in Nashua, New Hampshire, here are some students' blocks. Several examples have been tiled together to show that four paperpieced blocks will create a ring, which is how the double wedding ring design is made using Scarlett's Double Wedding Ring pattern.
Here are quilts made from Scarlett's unique paperpiecing pattern for the Double Wedding Ring:
This bed size quilt was made by Angenett Taft of Hayfork, California. She's a member of the Log Cabin Quilters and used their longarm machine to quilt her own designs on this quilt. The pattern she used is Scarlett's Double Wedding Ring. The plaid fabrics in this quilt were from remnants she had on hand. Here's a close-up of one of the blocks:
This is one block from Angenett's quilt, featuring Scarlett's Double Wedding Ring pattern. When set together, the blocks form the ring design.
Here's a machine embroidered version, done in reds and greens.
This closeup shows more detail of the paperpiecing, as well as some of the machine embroidery.
