    Does anyone know the name of this pattern? Or have you seen it anywhere? I know it is some type of wedding ring, but I haven't seen that many with the star in the center. This is a quilt my neighbor got in Arkansas.

    Never in my life have I seen a quilt with that pattern. It's absolutely breathtaking though.

    I have a book with different wedding ring quilts but not this one. This is a stunning wedding ring. I hope you find the pattern for it.

    It seems like I've seen it somewhere, called "Golden Wedding Ring" or something like that, but I can't remember where.

    Yes, it is called the Golden Wedding Ring according to Robert Bishop in his book "The Romance of Double Wedding Ring Quilts". This is a book I checked out of the library so many times I decided to find myself a copy. It has patters for templates to this quilt in the back. But it looks like that link to ebay has them already made for you. And cheaper than the book, though it is a beautiful book. I like to drool.

    You are so lucky to have a library that has that book! I wouldn't mind brining it home to get that pattern - and start on it now for each of my boys from when they get married lol - they're only 7 & 9 but it might take me that long to get two of them finished - just gorgeous!!

    I'll keep my eyes open for a copy of that book - I am sure it will float around from time to time :)

    My grandmother said it is a double wedding ring with double star centers. The story behind the block she said is the center star is the bride and the larger star is the groom who promises to protect his bride at all means. The rings are what bind them together. My Grandmother is 83yrs old and said it is a 1930 to 1940 pattern. She said she believes it was first printed in the newspaper.
