Past Project - Wedding Ring Gift Quilt
This Double Wedding Ring wall hanging was made as a gift. I was married in May 2005 and a fellow quilt guild member, who is also a judge, peformed our ceremony. It ment a great deal to me and I wanted to give her a very speical thank you. The colors were inspired from a quilt she had brought to show and tell and had stuck with me as such a beautiful combination.
This was also my first Double Wedding Ring. It was hand pieced and machine quilted. Although this photo must be prior to the quilting. (I must have a tendancy to take a photo of a project in progress and then forget to take one of it finished.)
I like many traditional patterns and had been wanting to make one for some time. I was so pleased with how this turned out, I am making another using 30s fabrics (see photo posted on earlier blog) and I am just starting to gather fabrics for a king size for my bed.
