Double Wedding Ring!

The mister and I hit up some thrift shops last week. He spotted this top.

The fabrics are in good shape, but clearly the person who made this gave up after the piecing was done.

It has more ridges than Ruffles.

These photos were taken AFTER ironing.

It was all hand pieced. I have no idea what I’ll do with this, but of course I had to bring it home.

Wouldn’t you? Have a great day!

PS This is you last chance to sign up for this week’s Accuquilt Live show!

Hope to see you there!

  1. Oh that is a cool one! I had one similar and I just loved quilting it. It will be cool to see what you do!

    The quilt reminded me of another longarmer who rescued/repaired/quilted a vintage top. Here’s the links for Kelly Cline’s posts on her web page and youtube. Hope you are inspired to finish the quilt :0)

    With your skills, I think you could remove the offending ruffle and bring it under control. 🙂

  4. I recently had a vintage quilt rescued during quilting by using higher loft (shhh…polyester) batting to absorb the ridges and ruffles. It looks great. Maybe that would help with this one, too. Story here: https://weddingdressblue.wordpress.com/2021/01/26/a-vintage-rescue/

    Love the quilt top! I would be tempted to remake it but who has the time?!

  6. Oh, you definitely needed to bring that beauty home! Will be fun to see how you tame those ripples!
