I recently posted about some wedding ring blocks and pieces that I plan to finish up.
When we think of the Double wedding ring pattern we generally think of it like this. A scrappy variety of fabrics in the rings and white background fabrics. I quilted one like this as my second quilt. Here it is
Less common combinations are not unheard of. I have a few in my collection. (click pictures to enlarge) Here is a vintage top that was done with only 2 colors in the rings.
This one has a green background and the pieces in the rings are less random.
Here is one with yellow background and much narrower pieces (Some publications are now calling this Pattern “Pickle Dish” but that is an incorrect name)
This one uses shirting fabric with small print as the background
This one in Green and Tan is one of my favorites.
I have been really enjoying bright colors lately as you can see in the ring quilt I recently finished
I have been thinking about how I might do a Double Wedding Ring today…not from a vintage top.
If I did it like this, with half assorted colors and half solids and did a red background and light blue in the centers of the “melons” it would look like this
I know I don’t need any more projects but I might need to try this one. I think it is a new way to look at an old block.
