Another quilt from my vintage collection, this large Double Wedding Ring quilt shows a wonderful array of vintage fabrics, held together by the jade green and pale orange dancing four patches. This is another of the quilt tops I purchased, and it was a bit wonky, which may have been the reason for its never having been quilted before now.
Melissa Quilter took on the challenge of making it all work, and her quilting detail does this one proud. Click on the photo to see a closer view.
It has been a long time since I have bothered to fuss with a curved binding like this, but I think it really makes a statement. I was pleased to have found a new Kona cotton that is almost a perfect match to the original from 70+ (?) years ago.
Since it is so bright and cheery, this quilt has been a nice “summer” quilt for the house.
A non-quilting project
I could not resist this fabric at my local shop; I really never know what will catch my eye, and this one turned out to be perfect for a shirt for my brother Dave. There is a possibility he might actually wear it on occasion.
