Good evening everyone

Once again I present a dilemma: I have ordered (and received) several
fabrics that I had intended for a double wedding ring quilt. I would
like to use (try for the first time!) the inklingo method. Only now
that the fabrics have arrived, I can't choose!!!

Let me explain; I ordered a set of fabrics from the Lakehouse drygoods
Teatime collection and I love them. But then I saw and fell in love
with the shade cascade fabrics and I have ordered the fucsia shade. I
figured I want to use a cream kona cotton for the background, which
goes well with both color series. So now what do I do??? I really love
both series. So, this afternoon, while trying to survive the heat here
in Spain, I had a brainwave; could I make two DWR's, one in each color
way, and use one as the backing of the other, thus making a reversible
quilt, or is this like way out there?

What do all you experts think?

Noooooo, Claudia.  Don't do that.  It would be rather like cutting up the
Mona Lisa to line the kitchen cabinets. Don't hide it, flaunt it!  Polly

Claudia,

You don't want to go there. Really, getting the two to line up exactly would
drive anyone around the bend. The 'back' quilt would probably be off kilter
and then the quilting would show up strangely on the back. I had such
trouble when layering a 'double sided and oddly shaped small WH.

Make two quilt tops, choose your favorite, and send the other to me.

Thank you, Pat.  In these trying days of Change, there are only a few things
I can depend on and you make me smile.  You are good, Really really good.

Howdy!

Go for it!
Make the 2 quilt tops as close to the same size as possible.
Find the center of each, put a pin in it & line it up over each
side of the batting.  Quilt in an all-over pattern, not in the ditch,
but maybe in a grid or in large circles or diamonds (wedding ring, see?);
this way you won't have to worry about them being exactly matched
on either side.  
  Sounds like a pretty, special project.  Let us see how it turns out.

Got you beat there Sandy; it was 43=BAC in Madrid yesterday afternoon
when I went in for my shoulder MRI.

I'll keep pondering this!

Well, could be done (although I'm not familiar with inklingo). But it
seems like it would require a precision in construction that most
people would find a PITA. Wedding rings are often quilted around the
rings, sometimes outlining each ring segment. So if you wanted that
sort of quilting, you'd make yourself crazy getting it all to line up.
Make 2, they're fun. And that way you could try different quilting
designs.

I think attempting the double sidded quilt would be a bad case of:

"Double, double toil and trouble
 Un-pick and ^*& often"

I couldn't resist the mis-quote.
