Double Wedding Ring
Here is the antique Double Wedding Ring that I have been hand-quilting forever, it seems like. Actually it's only a few months. I am not the world's best or most dedicated hand quilter, but I like to have one on the frame to dabble away at in the mornings. I was baking bread today so I had to stay in the house to keep an eye on it (the bread that is). That meant I had all morning to finish the quilt. Now I just have to find some pink or blue fabric that more or less matches the corner pieces and have my first attempt at binding curves. The only thing I really know is that you have to use bias strips. One problem is that the edges, over time, have frayed quite a lot. I guess the piecing is far from perfect, as is the quilting, so I won't get in a twist about the binding.
