Grandma and Granny's Double Wedding Ring via Carol

As you can see, there were some "issues"  That's quilter terminology for not the greatest piecing.  Based on the prints, I'm going to guess that this was made from fabrics from the 1930's.  I had to laugh though because although all of my '30s prints are reproduction, I have several of the same designs as in this quilt.

The backing

 I did my best to wave my magical quilting wand, but there was still an awful lot of extra fabric that just couldn't be worked in.  We used wool batting, mostly for the extra loft to try to fill in some of the fullness.  I think the back looks pretty good!  The front, well, I've done better.
 My primary hope is that Carol and her late relatives are pleased with how it turned out.
