Double Wedding Ring Quilt History | AccuQuilt : AccuQuilt
Though the pattern was first published in the United States in the early 1920s, the quilt pattern can be found as early as the late 19th Century. The Double Wedding Ring quilt pattern has long been a symbol of love and romance with its interlocking ringssymbolizing marriage.Apr 15, 2017 https://www.accuquilt.com/blog/education/a-history-of-the-double-wedding-ring-quilt/
I have been working steadily on ‘Wishing You Good Will’ and while I feel I am making progress it still remains slow and difficult to gage. Working on her these last 3 weeks I have begun to think about the fact it is the wedding ring pattern; weddings, brides, flowers, saying
What I have found with Good Will as I move methodically around working on her, is the amount of worn and torn fabric I missed when first repairing her. In addition the amount of staining is more than I thought and a good dry cleaning is so needed, although it will not remove that damage. Still she is beautiful!
I began thinking about this quilt in a whole different light. I imagined this quilting process to be like the build up and anticipation to the wedding. The beginning of the border will be the equivalent to the wedding ceremony and once that is completed it will be the big celebration reception party. I can tell you right now, once ‘Wishing You Good Will’ is completed I am having a huge ‘finished the quilt party’ and your all invited.
In the spirit of marriage, weddings, rings, brides, grooms, guests, toasts, flowers and the wedding ring pattern, I thought it would be fun to highlight some of my favorite wedding photos

Some how thinking of ‘Wishing You Good Will’ in terms of brides and flowers, laughter and most of all love has helped me turn this daunting task into a true labor I love!
