You can't tell from my photo - this block is based on the Double Wedding Ring. This illustration shows the piecing.
I printed the pattern on freezer paper, then drew a line from corner to corner on each of the eight pieces of the "fringe."
I mentioned that this block is connected to the Double Wedding Ring quilt pattern. To get a copyright free image, I drew and colored this illustration that more or less resembles the piecing design of these quilts.
Double Wedding Ring (DWR) quilts were very popular in the 1930's. I wanted to come back to the DWR pattern because the only quilt I know of that was made by my ancestors that was kept to be passed down was a DWR, made by Alice Bruner, whom I mentioned in week 7, Alice's Flag.This is the best photo I have of Alice -

I think this is the only picture I have showing me with Dana as a baby in 1987 when she was born. Her father, my brother Carl, took it outside the front door of the house Dana grew up in, where her parents still live. I think it was Easter Sunday. Dana was just big enough to hold her own head up!
