I've a soft spot for those... my grandmother's double wedding ring quilt was on my bed when I was little. Perfect. I used to wear her soft, old cotton housedresses as nightgowns, too. Sadly... all gone. (My mother loved... still loves... chlorine bleach in the wash a little too much.)


If you're already basting you're in the home stretch! I am still piecing the top I'm sewing for my cousin's wedding. (Which was two weeks ago. But I have a year!)


The wedding ring quilt you made is really interesting. I still enjoy mini quilts as I learn different techniques, but I know what you mean about functionality. I am still filling some wall space, so I can use a couple.


I made a miniquilt from Jerry's baby clothes. A garbage bag full of baby clothes is gone, and I have a neat little quilt in its place. Yay! I love the wedding wing (mean: ring, but that's a funny typo) motif.


My sister has become fond of making quilts for babies. They're small and manageable, but still useful.


ooooo I really love that pile of fabrics in that last pic. lucky girl! ;)


The pile you have going on there will make one incredible quilt!


My mom does alot of quilting. She taught by her mom and know I have to many quilts in my home. I guess you can't have to many. lol
