    A vintage Double Wedding Ring (DWR) for a friend -- quilted by Dee

    I just got this quilt off the machine. My BFF found this top at an estate sale over 20 yrs ago -----for (drum roll)... $.25 --- that's 25 CENTS!!!! It was hand pieced......and had a LOT of issues. I was able to finally get it to lay flat, though I think it has a record number of "pleats" to get it to lay flat. I'll be tacking those down and binding it in the future. It's about 80 x 90" or so. I LOVED doing this -- the fabrics were beautiful! Oh -- this is all freehand.....no computer .....

    Beautiful quilt and you did a great job finishing this. To think she paid a quarter for it. Your friend is going to love it.

    I love this quilt and am so glad it found a deserving home. How sad that all that work was sold for 25 cents.

    A lot of hours and dedication went into this top -- and your caring takes it to the next level....may you slept well under this for years to come.

    What a nice gift.
    If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it.

    If you don't ask, the answer is always no.

    If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place.
