Double Wedding Ring Quilt
Jacki started this beauty in 1989 on her feather weight sewing machine. Measuring 94" x 108", cotton/bamboo batting & Madeira poly neon thread in ecru. I was delighted to quilt this for Jacki.
Jacki chose this design out of three I had a sketched up as 'possibles'. There are 56 of these motifs, not that I was counting! Lots of ditch stitching & some 1/4" seams on the 1/4 moons, were all Jacki wanted.
Jacki asked for the full 'Quiltme service', which is to make, attach & hand stitch binding in place as well as make a label. There were a few of these 1/4 moons in the bag, so I utilised one of these as the label.
I admit to have never making continuous bias binding. I couldn't seem to make head nor tails of the instructions from any books. So I turned to Youtube! I found some great video's showing just how to do this!
So now after nearly 25 years Jacki now has the pure joy of nestling under her quilt.
Thank you Jacki!
