wedding quilt



It's done.
It measures 18 x 21-1/4.
I don't know where the 1/4 came from but I didn't measure anything, it just happened.














Here's what the back looks like.

















This goes to Melissa and Kaveh also.
It's a queen-size double wedding ring that was made for me in the early 70's by my grandmother. She was in her mid 80's at the time.











It is actually white which shows better here. It's hand-pieced and hand-quilted. I think it was probably a church group in Bethany that did the quilting.












The quilting shows a bit better here.

Those are both nice quilts! I really like the double wedding ring, I'm a curved piecer at heart!

It's a very clever idea to make a little quilt similar to their wedding invitation. You did a lovely job with it - much better than anything I could have done. I don't have that out-of-the-box thought process. The DWR quilt is pretty too. What beautiful wedding gifts!

Looks fabulous, and your quilting is ace! The DWR is a special one for them, too.
Hugs,

It looks very, very good (even better in person!) and the yard was a great place to take the picture of your grandmothers quilt :)
