Another Quilt Along--Double Wedding Ring

I LOVE Double Wedding Ring quilts...they are so traditional and I just love how they look.  The Plaid Scottie is hosting a DWR quilt along...which is great since there is so little "real life" information out there with tips and instructions.  I bought a book a few years back, and while it really inspired me to make one, it didn't give me the confidence to just give it a go.  This pattern is paper piecing so no cutting each thing by hand, yay!  Needless to say, I am very excited about this QAL!!  We're starting on July 1, so I have a lot to do before we excited!

I haven't scoured my fabric collection yet, but I am thinking that I would like to use this color palette for my quilt...making the dark navy the background so that the rings really pop.  I love the website design seeds which takes a picture and pulls out these amazing color palettes, making it easy for people like me to MAKE A DECISION when it comes to colors.  I am loving the fuschia and green together...and grey...what could be better??  Everything looks better with grey.  Swoon.

I plan to NOT buy any fabric for this quilt, so we'll see how well that works!!
