Pattern Description:

I designed this wedding quilt for my niece, Kelsey. She is a modern woman who appreciates tradition, and this modern version of a wedding ring quilt updates the old traditional pattern with new contemporary style. It keeps the heart of the pattern, the idea of two lives joining represented by rings surrounding each other creating new rings, but the pattern is adapted for modern times.

Instead of hundreds of small pieces sewn to make the rings, each of the 12 ovals in the center panel are cut from a whole piece of fabric. These rings are sewn (appliqued) to the center background of the quilt. The appliques are sewn with the fabric edges raw, exposed. They are designed to fray to the stitches, giving a textured, unaffected look to the quilt. The appliques and the quilting are done at the same time. The borders are assembled and quilted individually before being attached to the quilt.

Every step in this quilt was planned to create the most beautiful quilt possible in the most efficient way possible.
