Double Wedding Ring Done!
I have done it! I finally finished stitching down the binding on the antique Double Wedding Ring quilt that I started way back when. I will have to check back in my blog to know when. I haven't done the label yet but I think I might buy some computer fabric and print out a label so I can put in all the information about who pieced it ( my mother in the 1930's for those who weren't reading my blog when I started it) and who quilted it.
Thanks for all the nice comments on the box that I made. It was actually easier than it looks and the next one, if there is a next one, will be easier. I just got a call from the library that the instruction book I used is overdue. We have a great library. They don't charge for overdue books. They just give you a call and remind you. When they call you can renew it over the phone if you want to. Unfortunately I was away when the call came so I will probably go in tomorrow and either return it or renew it.
I went to a one-woman quilt show in a gallery in Winnipeg today and it was simply amazing. She had done 6 or 7 large quilts depicting the beginning of the world according to the Bible. It was all needle turn applique using her own drawings as patterns. She did both hand and machine quilting. The last one was Old MacDonald's farm with all the animals. Her colours were fabulous. Unfortunately, I didn't have a camera along. The quilter's name is Judith Panson. I'm not sure if she has a web page or not. It was worth the trip just to see her work. Now I am inspired to try a landscape quilt but with fusing. Stay tuned.
