Big Quilt

I have completed the top for Adam & Tess's double wedding ring quilt. The pattern is from Sew Kind Of Wonderful with a couple of modifications, of course. The first is that my rings are made of 1" finished strips instead of 2". The second is that I added borders. I just have this thing about quilts needing borders. Like matting around a picture in a frame. The backing is washed, ready to be sewn together later today. This quilt is big, 90" x 108". Eight yards of fabric, which I had the foresight  to purchase last year at Keepsake Quilting in Center Harbor, NH. If you are ever near there, it is worth the trip to stop in. Eye candy for the quilter's soul.
Til next time,
Happy Quilting!
