Every Thursday, I share photos of a quilt my grandmother has made for me. They're such gorgeous works of art -- and such an important part of my Appalachian heritage! Today's quilt is the popular double wedding ring pattern.
This is one of those patterns that everyone has seen. Because the interlocking circles represent wedding bands, it's the quilt that a lot of people undertake to present as a wedding gift. And, according to my granny, it's a hard one to make. Every piece has to be cut just perfectly. The seam allowances have to be precise. It's not a quilt for a newbie, nor is it one that you can make in a hurry. But it sure is gorgeous.

Sophie just had to be part of the photo shoot; she jumped on the bed when I wasn't looking!
