Double Wedding Ring Douvet Cover

The rings were paper pieced and then machine pieced together (set in seams and curved piecing). I picked fabrics that reminded me of both Isabelle (my sister) and Clayton (her husband). The butterflies were iron on transfers that I free motion quilted over in variegated thread. The cream sections of the quilt were free motion stippled with white thread.

The rings refused to lay flat, so I cut batting out in the shape of the rings to keep it fluffed up. It turned out beautifully.

Here's my nephew trying out the new duvet cover. He seams pleased ;)
