Earlier today I had the chance to go on a quick thrifting excursion, and I found this beauty. This is a vintage, hand-quilted, double wedding ring quilt. The colours are so pretty! I have never seen a quilt in a thrift shop, but I have seen them in antiques markets for a lot of money. This one cost me $10. Johanna, quilt teacher extraordinaire, had recently posted about the double wedding ring quilt, and I thought how lucky I was that I was able to find one already completed, in fabrics I could have chosen myself.
This quilt needs some attention; some of the seams need repair and sadly, some of the hand stitching has come undone. Still, I couldn't be more thrilled.
