Has anybody made one? Any tips or anything?

I have been wanting to make one for my parents for a while, but they just got a king size bed. So not doing that yet, but I just found out that one of my cousins is  getting married in November. I have no idea how big I'm going to make it, but I've started.

Hi Dave! I've made two double wedding rings quilts. If you are already a quilter, it's not too difficult. But it's not really a beginner project. And it takes a loooong time to make. I spent between 250 and 300 hours on each one. I recommend you buy templates to make the pieces to be sewn together. This will make them more accurate and easier to assemble.

That is beautiful! I have made a few quilts before. For the most part they turned out fine, I have looked for templates in stores but haven't seen any, I really hate buying online (it's never the right size, too flimsy, etc..),
 
You may have just won ten million dollars! Or, maybe a tiny ad.
