I really like Victoria's first book, 15 Minutes of Play, so I was excited to purchase this new book. The quilts in the Double Wedding Ring book are thought provoking and the photographs are beautiful. However I can't see myself making any of these quilts as they either originate from the author's personal experience or were not to my liking. The author does provide the reader with some guidelines to personalize each quilt but that information was not helpful to me. I would have given this book more stars if there had been a couple of projects that more clearly walked the reader through creating their own unique Wedding Ring quilt. For me, this was a quilt book that I would look through verses a book that I can refer to over and over again. Since I have limited space for quilt books, I will be returning this one as I would rather borrow it from my local library when needed.
I absolutely love this book! Victoria Findlay Wolfe has such a unique style and it obviously comes from deep within. This is so much more than a "How to" book. Not only are there directions for making the quilts, you also get insight into how Victoira finds her inspiration. I love when an author draws you in by telling you each quilt's story, and Victoria does this so well. I've yet to make a DWR but have put the "chunky" (aka: Strings of Florid Blooms, page 46) one on my list to do first. I've been drooling over that quilt since I first caught glimpse of it!
With new eyes on a traditional pattern, Victoria shows me that I can incorporate not only bright colors, but space-themed fabrics for a bride and groom ( they met at a sci-fi convention). Fabric requirements, patterns, cutting instructions are all there! Most of all, her stories behind her quilts gives me confidence that " mistakes" are good-just cut 'em up into new made-fabrics! The fabric is on the cutting table and I am ready to go! Thank you, Victoria
