    This was pieced by my husband's mother and grandmother in the 30's and 40's.
    I jointed the rings and hand quilted them. This is my first quilting. There were two wedding ring quilts that I finished by hand

    I love it when one generation gets the opportunity to finish something from a previous generation.

    It makes you wonder what they were thinking and what was going on in their lives when they were making it.

    Very nice work and a lot of memories.

    That is so pretty. What a family heirloom. Two different generations worth of work. I'm so glad you decided to finish it.
