Vintage Double Wedding Ring Quilt

The Nimble Thimbles brought some wonderful Show and Tell in July.

Kim went on vacation and came home with a vintage Double Wedding Ring Quilt made by her grandmother.

What a treasure to have this quilt in the hands of a grand daughter who appreciates and keeps the art of quilting alive through the next generation.

Kim estimates her grandmother made the Double Wedding Ring sometime during the 1920's- 1930's.
All hand quilted.

Ruth has been busy with her embroidery machine, and has already completed a table runner for Christmas.

Ruth also made a cute apron for her niece, with matching pot holders. (my camera was not quick enough to catch a picture of the accessories)

I'll share more Show and Tell from the Nimble Thimbles tomorrow.

Thanks for sharing the show and tell, I loved seeing them all. I watched a movie today that had a DWR quilt just like the one shown, it's gorgeous.

Double wedding rings have been one of my favorite antique quilts - along with baskets and dresdens. What a treasure to have something so beautiful and special.

I always love double wedding ring quilts - I guess that is why I made two of them! Thanks for the quilt show :)
