It is such a beautiful day today. The sun is shining and it gives a whole new perspective to life and sewing in general. I have been going through my unfinished projects and found my Double Wedding Ring and I have started some more rings.
My first encounter with quilting happened many years ago when I saw a Double Wedding Ring Quilt in a shop window. It was a very soft pastel quilt with beautiful tiny flowers on a white background and a very pale blue spot binding. Isn’t it funny how you can remember some things so clearly. I desperately wanted to buy that quilt but I just simply couldn’t afford it. The memory of that quilt has never left me. So when my local quilting shop advertised classes for a double wedding ring quilt I couldn’t wait to enrol. I chose butterfly fabric because I love them and thought I had better include something for my hubby and settled on bikes. He is a cycling fanatic. I am hand piecing this quilt and have been working at it on and off for a while. Now that I have shared it with you I will be giving it more attention.
As the sun shines it brings back memories of holidays. Have you heard that Fiona at Celtic Thistle Stiches is hosting a Holiday Memories Mini Quilt Competition. There are three categories Mini Quilt/ Wall Hanging, Cushion/Pillow, Bag/Accessory. The linky party opens Thursday September 26 – October 4,2013. There are lots of beautiful prizes to be won from sponsors such as Village Haberdashery, Sew Me A Song, Fabric Patch, Blossom Hearts Quilts, Quiet Play. Stop by and check it out here!
As always, thank you for stopping by! Wherever you are in the world have a fabulous day.
