Pattern: my own

Materials: Fabric, thread, ingenuity

Notes/Thoughts/Etcetera: I wanted to make a wedding ring quilt that wasn't so traditional. I like working with "big" and I really like working with lots of negative space/background. I hand drafted the rings/arcs (which was really kind of stupid since I have a computer, obviously). I wanted the circles to be a little imperfect to harken back to the whole "hand piecing thing" though they are NOT handpieced at all. I had a lot of fun with this. I don't think I want to do it again anytime soon, but it was fun. The quilting for this however...no, not fun. I need a quilting frame, clearly.
