When last I wrote about this project I was contemplating what to do with the magenta and off-white album block. (You can see the starting block in this post from March) The 24x24 inch quilt is almost ready to ship off to Dorry. I'm calling it Strawberry Fields Forever.
The design is my own variation on the traditional Double Wedding Ring pattern. I made one set of rings narrower in plain white, and the other is slightly wider, in three shades of green.
Here's an angled look at it in the afternoon sun so the quilting shows up better.
Double Edged Love and I went for it. (The link is to Victoria's blog entry about her win.)
This was a difficult piecing job and not one of my better ones, but now I'd like to make a "real" Double Wedding Ring quilt some day (maybe soon?) with scrap fabrics for the traditional wedges that make up the rings. I'll buy the plastic templates for that though!
