Just after I bought the Shar Jorgensen's templates and book on how to do a Double Wedding Ring, my favourite nephew announced that he was engaged. The date has been set for next May - is a year enough time to do DWR? Before I begin, I just wondered what people prefer - completely matchy-matchy or scrappy? I've seen DWR done both ways, and as stunning as the matchy-matchy ones (think lovely greens, pinks and white) they don't make the eye move around as much as the scrappy ones. For a wedding quilt, would a scrappy quilt be seen as "less than the best"? I'm trying not to buy fabric, but use what I have... but I don't want the gift to look less fabulous for that. What do you folks think?
