I was working on this DWR again last night. This is a long term project as it will be a king size. I'm also doing it in four sections. I have one section together and quilted. I need three more rings...three...to have section two done. I started tp put them together last night and this is what I did. Since it was so messed up I knew I'd never get it apart without something tearing but then I realized.....it wasn't just one side piece I have to take off. It's three of them! UGH!!!
So needless to say I stopped for the night. I'm honestly just considering making two more side pieces and tossing this rather than rip this apart.

I haven't had time to quilt lately. By the time I sit down at night I am ready for bed and the days have been busy. BUT.....I am going on a quilt retreat soon! A friend and I have decided to do our own retreat. We have a quilt picked out to work on and plan on tackling our massive scrap collections. I already started on mine. So far I've emptied 4 of those big boxes you use to store files in. Cutting down the scraps to manageable sizes takes up SEW much less space! Pictures to come soon.

Here is what is currently on my design curtain.
First is a Double Wedding Ring. It will be a king size and I'm doing it in 4 sections so I can hold it while I handquilt. Section 1 is finished and section 2 needs 3 more blocks then quilting.
And then there's this. A friend and I are doing a block exchange. We're just making them up as we go and trying to keep colors similar. I made blocks one and three, she made blocks two and four. We'll swap out blocks next week.
