    Ok, I remember a quilt I thought was called wedding ring but when I looked that up it did not look anything like the one I remember. Not even double wedding ring although one version I saw was close.

    The was a full quilt with an interconnecting ring on it. You know like the magians ring trick when they are connected. It looked like that but it was Not a block but the design center of the quilt. It was on a white quilt with a border and the connecting rings were big. Filled up most of the quilt and this was on a king size bed. That was all it had one ring connected to the other but no repeating pattern.

    Anyone have a clue what this pattern is called or where I can find it?

    Same here as GCathie. If you can find a pic, that would help most of us.

    Try Googling to find a picture. In the search box type ring quilt and select Images. Lots of quilt pics with the word ring in the title will show. You may find a picture like one you are describing.

    Probelm is I saw this quilt 35+ years ago. I have not found a pattern like it to show. It looks like the double wedding ring but with only 2 rings instead of four and does not repeat.

    If you draw two rings overlapping and sized them to fill the middle of a quilt that is what this would look like. The rest of the quilt is blank except for boarder and binding.

    You probably couldn't have picked a finer challenge than to try to remember something from 35 years ago and then select something that was probably someone's moment of ultimate creativity.
    It sounds to me that you are about to embark on a career called "design" .. which is where all those patterns in books and magazines come from.
    Always remember:
    You are working with an inanimate object. As a human you have superiority over all inanimate objects. You can make most of them do whatever you want!
    With that in mind, start drawing out your pattern the way you remember it, and then start making it fit the size of your target.
    If you saw it done once, it can be accomplished again.
    I hope you are correctly inspired to keep working at it, since you very much have just the right frame of mind to progress well into and through the quilting world.

    could it have been a variation of the friendship knot?

    No but that is a neat quilt. I am thinking after that it might be a variation of the DBl wedding ring. The only wedding ring quilts I found were not circles like that but that frienship and the double wedding rings are closer than the simply wedding ring.

    If anyone knows of any links I have not looked at for the ring quilts please pass them on. I am really curious to what this quilt is called for I can not forget about it now. :-)

    Is the quilt your looking for a series of interlocking rings? IF so I may have a pattern for it but it will be next weekend before I can go to my mothers and get the book.

    Nope can not sketch as I do not know how to do that on a computer forum.

    Not a figure 8 BUT if you turn the 8 sideways and push it in a bit till circles overlap you got it.

    Not sure it is a series on interlocking rings as I said it only had the 2 on the quilt that I remember. As Omak said it could have been someone redoing onther pattern, downsizing it to just 2 rings. That why I thing the DBl wedding ring is so close but it is 2 too many in the pattern, for when made it makes 4 rings. This quilt was just 2 big rings. I am not even sure it was a pattern at this point.

    I did see it on a comerical quilt not too long ago or at least I think I did since I did not really touch the quilt and it was hanging folded. The rings were in the center of the quilt. I am wondering if they were not cut and place like applique instead of patchwork.

    Thanks everyone for trying to help on this. I am sure I will find it eventually but for now I am giving up as searching for it is not finding it. So maybe not searching for it I will find it again. :D

    I just saw that somewhere on the computer recently. It was all white and the interlocking rings were gold and in the middle of the quilt. IT was beautiful. However I don't remember where I saw it as I look at so many things online. I will keep my eye out for it. I watch Youtube and TQS newsletter, I am not a member and anything else that is free. Sorry I could not be more help. It looks like two wedding bands interlocked like they do on wedding invitations. Does this sound like it?

    Yes, that is it. It is good to know I am not nuts. Hopefully one of us will find it again.
