Nancy's Vintage Double Wedding Band Quilt

Have you ever heard of an Ohio Star? How about a Nine Patch? There are a lot of different quilt blocks that have fun names. Some have more than one name, maybe because they were created by different people around the same time. One of these famous quilt blocks anyone would recognize is the Double Wedding Band quilt. It does have other names, but the interlocking image of rings is very clear. There are a lot of myths and legends about this quilt and many of them involve a wedding or at least wedding rings.

Nancy received this beautiful double wedding band quilt from a family member. It was clearly old and all hand pieced. Because we know that many quilters in the past would cut up old clothes, we can only guess where all these fabrics may have come from. Let me tell you, a Double Wedding Band quilt is a great way to use up a stash.

Quilting the Double Wedding Band

To finish this quilt, Nancy asked me to quilt it with another classic quilting design called an Orange Peel. This is a pattern that involves a lot of continuous curves. It therefore sort of echoes the rings in the double wedding band. It is a lovely pattern for adding truly delicious texture to a quilt without being distracting. I think it looks lovely on this great old quilt.
