    whew! finally got top put together

    I have a nephew getting married this summer and I decided to make the couple of double wedding ring quilt. I made the last nephew who got married one as well - but this one seems to have been a much bigger job. Even though both quilts are the same size. I have the top put together and its ready to go out for quilting - no way I can do a king size on my home machine. Thanks for looking

    The black background is wonderful. It makes this a modern interpretation of a traditional pattern. I know they will love it.

    that is just gorgeous! I love that you used a dark center--makes your rings just pop. Please post again after it's quilted,too.

    Oh my! That's just beautiful... I really like how the dark background brings the rings to life. I'm sure your nephew and his bride will truly enjoy the gift. Would love to see it quilted
