I've fallen in love with this pattern - trouble is I can only find paper piecing patterns.

As a quilting newbie - this is beyond my abilities - anyone come across a machine pieced version on their quilting travels?

Thanks
Lisa

Lisa - This one is difficult to do for a beginner with the curves and points involved- pretty precise methods are needed. Have you tried paper piecing? is is "easy peasy"! I have taught 7 year olds how to do it.
If don't know if you know how to paper piece- HERE is a link if you do not.
This site also has a paperpieced Double wedding ring pattern as well.
As far as non foundaion easy - here is a book I came across ,book

As for me, this is the "easy peasy" way to do a Double Wedding Ring quilt:

Nancy Rink sells a pattern that is very similar to a Double Wedding Ring, but doesn't require all the curved piecing and templates: With This Ring.

Haven't tried it myself, just thought it looked clever.

agree curves can be tricky for new quilter but if you are an experienced "clothes" sewer I believe you could do it. I bbook marked this site for a rainy day simplifies the process somewhat , some purists mught even say cheats! the link

I would paper piece a DWR. Would never consider any other method. And I don't even like paper piecing!

There is another book, called "Rings that Bind" by Cheryl Phillips and Linda Pyslo. It is also done by machine, but a different method. And is really a sort of quilt as you go method.
The ISBN is:
0-9677894-4-3
Must admit the linked method above looks easier though as long as you are comfortable with quilting a whole quilt in one piece.

Dear All
Thanks so much for the links & hints. I think its going to be a labour of love however I tackle it and probably character building.
Maybe I'll dip a toe in the water and make a teeny one first ......
