I was so intrigued by it that I was inspired to make a Double Wedding Ring quilt as my first project when I started quilting. Oops. I was crazy ambitious, but it did come together by hand (over a number of years). I wish I had a picture to share, but it was gifted away. While my Double Wedding Ring quilt used templates for each piece in the ring, Alice's definitely doesn't.
Rather the pieces in the ring seem to be assembled haphazardly, and the ring may have just been cut out of a pieced section. Highly crafty. I'd love to hear your thoughts on how the curved sections are put together. I get such a kick out of these wonky pieces when I think about how long it took me to cut out all of the pieces that made up the curves in the quilt I made. At least I had a rotary cutter.
I loved showing this quilt at the February Austin Modern Quilt Guild meeting, since we brought quilts that inspired us. Everyone loved the yellow binding.
I sure do, too. The back is all green fabric like the background fabric on the front of the quilt.
It really shows off the quilting. With so much effort put into hand quilting all around the pieces and in the middle of the blocks, the back looks as pretty as the front to me. I definitely did not go into this much detail when hand quilting the Double Wedding Ring quilt that I made ;-)
I can see why this quilt inspired you. It's beautiful! And to think your great-grandmother did all that without the advantages of the tools we have to day. Amazing!ReplyDelete
Is it all handsewn?
I paper pieced my flowering snowball, which is a simpler version, I haven't tried sewing curves, but Mary @Molly Flanders does them really well.
