Double Wedding Ring using 1930's reproduction fabrics

Ah, the double wedding ring. It has been around since the beginning of time. Well Almost. But to see it is to make it.

A favorite pastime for me was watching my Mother sew together tiny pieces of fabric and then transform the pieces into a beautiful quilt. It was fascinating to see my old dresses and yes, some blouses, being worked into a quilt. This gave me a sense of ownership in knowing that my old dresses were now keeping me warm in yet another way as I snuggled beneath the warm blankets.

I remember Mother telling me that quilting is simply cutting a favorite piece of fabric into small pieces and then sew the pieces back together using your imagination to get the pieces to fit. We have come a long way since the 1930's.

My dolls
by: Jenene

Oh yes, the dolls! They go back...all the way to my late teens...my version of Scarlet and Mammy from Gone With the Wind. The third one is my answer to The North and South. You must read the "About Us" page to learn how the dolls came to be. Somehow the double wedding ring is fitting for my hand made dolls and imagination.
