Well not really, but we do have a double wedding ring quilt to celebrate. This is a pattern by Judy Niemeyer aka Quiltworx. It is called Grandma’s Wedding Ring. In the original pattern the “center” is a 4-patch unit, but Julie decided she would rather have one solid fabric, no problem. Julie had taken the wedding ring class from me at Pinwheels and Posies in Dickinson, TX. She lives in Austin, TX but has attended a few classes that I have taught. I must say, Julie’s work on this quilt was a delight to quilt. Her curves are smooth and her intersecting points when adding her corners were done very nicely. She loved Judy’s technique for assembling this quilt, I call it making apple cores! The arcs are paper-pieced and using rulers designed by Judy Niemeyer for the melons and centers insures you too will have a beautiful quilt!
I wasn’t sure how I was going to quilt this one when I put it on my quilting frame, but then some magic started to happen – I hope you enjoy! (Remember to click on the individual photos to see more details!)
I liked the feather design in this quilt so much, that I am now adding it to Ronda’s pretty cheddar civil war quilt – who wants to see?
