My mother, Pat, started this quilt for her grand-daughter Madeline I don't even know how many years ago. Her first quilt, and the whole thing is applique! Many of the fabrics are leftovers from clothes that she sewed for Maddie, so it's even more precious. This was a block of the month project from the sewing store where we both bought our machines. So sweet!
Someday, maybe, I'll attempt to piece a double wedding ring. It'll probably end up being a table topper, certainly not the queen that this one is. All hand pieced with scrappy rings. Nice placement of the colors though. I'd love to know the history behind this one.
I have to admire Deanna's willingness to take on a challenge. This quilt has more "Y" seams (which are difficult to piece at best) than I can count. Really lovely in blacks, whites and reds with silver grey thread for the quilting.
