Floral Wedding Ring

floral-wedding-ring-11

When we arrived home after two weeks away I spent quite a bit of time cruising around the WWW to see what had happened while I was away. Somewhere, sometime I saw something which looked a little bit like a Double Wedding Ring quilt, but the rings were flowers. I have no idea where it was, or even if it was a quilt or just some snippet of a design for something else, but even if the location didn’t register, the idea did!

A few days later I drew up this design. It can use some tweaks but the idea works. Double Wedding Ring is a classic quilt design, and I have already made an applique version using small leaf shapes as beads in Double Wedding String of Beads, and have considered using round ‘beads’ as well, but now have been sidetracked and used flowers. Well, designed one with flowers, haven’t made it!

    You must have the same Fairy Godmother as me! She seems to be busy elsewhere! Keeps missing our anniversaries too!

    Would be a lot, but then there is a lot of piecing in the traditional version. And I would rather applique!

    Thank you, I think I might work on this with a view to publishing the pattern one day.

      Thank you, Lynn, I have been playing with it a bit more and it will probably be written up as a pattern in the future.
