Today I thought I would share some of my other love, making quilts. Creating a quilt is a more time-consuming task than making cards.
These two quilts were wedding presents. The green one was for my son and daughter-in-law. If you zoom in and look at a melon, you will see there is a piece of music fabric in each melon. Our son is a musician. Green is Steph’s favourite colour and music is Kerry’s passion. Our daughter and son-in-law chose the same quilt but in their favourite colours. Carren chose blue, and John chose purple.
These quilts are called The Double Wedding Ring quilt. As you can see there are rings intertwining, with no end. This pattern was a very popular quilt pattern in the Depression. It was first publishd in 1928. It continues to be a very popular pattern.
If you zoom in, you will see each melon has 8 pieces on each side, with pieces at the join. Lots and lots of curves.
I hope you enjoy seeing my other crafts.
