Double Wedding Ring
I’ve had a vintage double wedding ring for at least a year, purchased on ebay for about $15. I won it with another top and a basket of scraps for a total of $30…..score! It was meticulously pieced and the vintage fabrics were fabulous. I finally dug it out a few weeks ago to practice a digital computer pattern before doing a customers’ double wedding ring.
I know I’m drawn to these old quilts because of their fabrics. I love the quirky patterns and I’m sometimes wondering if the maker had messages in the quilt. There are quite a few of the “horses’ behind” pics (maybe the maker didn’t care for the husband choice ;-).
And then I love what looks like two cowboys dancing 😉
I love the digital patterns that I found! They “skew” nicely to the odd middle shaped square of the main block. The “melon” shape also has a great stitch pattern. Both of these designs let me avoid ditch stitching, which I so appreciate!
The final quilt is stunning and the dense quilting really gives it durability. As soon as I get the crazy scalloped binding finished, I plan on giving it a gentle wash and clothesline dry.
The back is beautiful too!!
