    OK I posted pic of this in my PDA and in the UFO challenge....I got this as a kit from my Husband's grandmother a few years ago for Christmas...I had made two blocks back then and then put it in a storage container until last week.....I was going to try nad applique something in those squares...but I don't think I am ...I am going to have the quilter work her magic and do some detailed quilting in those areas. I am also going to save this quilt for one of my children....it will be a long time..but I just think it is so special to me for some reason.

    That's gorgeous. Please post a new picture once it's quilted. I can't wait to see the final outcome.

    How pretty! I don't think I've seen this pattern before. Looks similar to the double wedding ring?

    Oh... this is a very special quilt. Your right in not putting in any applique. The quilter can bring this alive with interest her stitches in between the blocks.

    What a neat way to do a double wedding ring! You must have had to stay alert to make that pattern. Good job, and do post a picture after it's quilted.

    Nothing like planning ahead :lol:
    Your quilt is BEAUTIFUL can't wait to see the magic your quilter works on it.
    You might have something there, making the quilt for way in the future. I should start doing that, instead of needing it 2 weeks ago :D

    Definitely let your quilter do her magic. I've never seen that method before, but love it. What a beautiful quilt!

    What a beautiful quilt and what a wonderful idea!
    The quilt sure stands on its own merit with nothing added.
    Thanks for sharing!
