    My Grandmother DWR Quilt

    I was finally able to get some pictures of my grandmothers Double Wedding Ring Quilt she made many years ago. I was always amazed as a child of all the colors and tiny pieces that where hand pieced and quilted into this beautiful quilt. It currently has a home at my mothers house, but I hope one day to have it for my very own. Thanks for looking.

    That is beautiful. My grandmama had a iron bed just like that when I was a child. The DWR is on my to do list.
