Quilting is a craft deeply rooted in tradition, history, and sentiment. Each quilt will always tell a unique story, woven with love and care. Among the vast array of quilt patterns, the Double Wedding Ring stands as a symbol of enduring love and commitment. It is traditionally made as a wedding gift, as it is a complex design, it takes time and effort to make it, so a wedding is just the right occasion to gift it!
The Double Wedding Ring quilt pattern has a rich history dating back to the early 20th century. Its interlocking rings symbolize the unbreakable bond between two people, making it a cherished heirloom often passed down through generations.
Crafting a Double Wedding Ring quilt is truly a labor of love. The quilt features delicately curved pieces that create the illusion of rings interlocking with one another. Piecing these curves together requires precision and-a lot of- patience, making it a true labor of love ❤️.
My Double Wedding Ring quilt, is not meant to be gifted, but I made it solely for the love of making a challenging quilt. It took me almost two months of continuous work in piecing the quilt top. It was a work of love, but the love for quilting.
The actual design I chose is a pattern, it’s actually a pattern for handpiecing the quilt (and FPP two-in-one), from one of my favorite quilters, Tara Faughnan.
I do not want to get into many more details, as these will be the subject of another blog post that will follow after the completion of the whole quilt.
In a world that often rushes by, the art of quilting reminds us to slow down and savor life’s simple pleasures. A Double Wedding Ring quilt, with its timeless beauty and rich history, embodies the essence of quilting and patchwork.
