Wedding Ring Top Finished

I have finished with the Wedding Ring quilt top. I only need the borders, hopefully I will find the same light blue fabric I used for the sashing. I really like the way this turned out. It's my version of the wedding ring pattern. I had been calling it a Dresden Plate but several people say it reminds them of Wedding Ring so that's what I shall call it. GRATITUDES 1. The microwave. 2. The voices of children playing 3. A good book. 4. A very nice sister-in-law.

The quilt is very pretty.
Must quilts have a name? Well, mine does come to think of it...now...I wonder why??

You seem to be feeling better, or at least living with it graciously (: I am glad

This is very pretty. I assume that you found enough blue fabric to do the rest of the sashing. (last time you said you might run out). And I hope you find a pretty color for the border. Are you going to quilt it yourself or get it sent out?

I love this quilt! It will make a very nice wedding gift someday. *S*

Very nice!! You know it looked so pretty on the burgundy backdrop in your previous pictures--must be the pink tones and the blues.

Now you said whichever or your boys get married first--is there some prospect of that soon or will they give you time to get it hand quilted?

It is very pretty - looks like you used lots of scraps too! I love using scraps - some of them are so sentimental.

Cheers!

this turned out wonderfully. I'd never get so many circles made and still be sane, but they all look great! sway to go.

Looking good!

I'm glad you found the fabric... but were you able to resist temptation and leave JoAnn's with ONLY the blue sashing fabric? :)

The quilt is lovely. I like the quilting part the best, so this quilt just sings happiness to me with all those lovely open spaces for quilting! Have you decided what to do in those spaces?
