Double Wedding Quilt Project - Done


In 1990 I had an idea for a quilt and wall hanging for my king-sized bed.  The problem: I did not know how to quilt.  Solution: take a quilting class.  


I started with a pin cushion, progressed to a wall hanging, and then to a sampler quilt.  I was 'Hooked on Quilting'.  Then, I took the quilt class to end all quilt classes...a Double Wedding Ring Quilt.  Of course, mine could not have been a simple double wedding ring quilt.  No...I went for a queen sized quilt with three different colors and a white center.


All documented in this book

Here you go! 
22 years later...Not only for the quilt, but for the quilter...

20 Year Anniversary

Now, 22 years later...











Of course, I have many more ideas to embellish it.  
I have decided to declare it 'finished'.  Now on to the future.

  4. Yep!!! Hand pieced and hand quilted and embroidered! Now you know why it took 22 years:) Actually, all of those years were not spent on the quilt...there were about a total of maybe 7 or 8 that it languished in storage waiting for me to welcome it back in my life!
