Feb.19th..double wedding ring

I finally decided to do the double wedding ring after going though the box of scraps . There is enough fabric to do another quilt of a different pattern later with larger pieces. The pieces that I have are all very small just big enough to get the little pieces for the rings . I am going to paper piece the rings for it would take to much time to cut each little piece with a template. At least to me it would.πŸ™‚

I made a pattern to piece on..


It will work out great! Look at all these lovely old fabrics .. I really forgot I had so many.

 
There are some really little pieces 1 1/2 inch or less that I thought would be cute to make into mug rugs.


Then I found these pieces that looked to me like they were cut for a quilt.

A fan ,tumbler ( larger and smaller size) Dresden plate would be my guess.

Then I found some blocks..



This piece was sown to the bottom piece in foundation piecing. There were a lot of strips so I might just do a log cabin with those pieces, and put this one in the quilt.


This block looks like it many have been a victim of mice teeth.

As I went though this fabric , I had to think of the lady that owned these before me. I do believe she liked to quilt, she also liked to save her scraps.. some of the fabric looked like shirt fabric ,so did she also make shirts for her family? I also had to wonder if any of the fabric held special memories for her…..


I hope my readers don’t get tried of seeing  camellias.. I am still taken away with their beauty.



As I was walking taking my evening stroll ,I come upon this bush. Don’t know what kind it is,( maybe in the japonica family ?)But the bees loved it.

Tomorrow hubby and I will be married for 29 wonderful years. My.. how time flies!

    Happy Anniversary! Never worry that you post too many flower pictures in February😍, we northerners can’t get enough of them! Those scraps really are something, they do look pretty small. I wonder how much faster the paper piecing will be…I bet lots!

    My husband and I are coming up on 27 years of marriage–I hope your anniversary is great! That’s an amazing pile of fabrics–I’ll be so interested in seeing your progress. And, like you, my thoughts always turn to the women who handled the fabric before it got to me.

      Not far behind us then.😊 the day is going lovely,we are making our dinner together ..as Leona has again caught a nasty cold and running fever so no going out, which really isn’t a bother for being in the kitchen with each other is just great. It will be fun working with these little oldies.

    Happy anniversary! That seems like a great way to do a double wedding ring. I have a cutting die which cuts out all the individual pieces to make it easy; I wouldn’t be cutting them out otherwise. A friend of mine just got engaged over the weekend so I see one of these in my future.

    I looked up double wedding ring quilt, and what a perfect way to use the scraps, also a good choice for your special day, Hope you had a lovely meal and that Leona is getting better. My pink camellia has large buds on, so hopefully any day now it will flower, which then means Spring is here, yeah πŸ™‚

      We had a lovely meal of steak and baked sweet potatoes.Leona is feeling a little better,she’s not running fever like she was,so that’s a good sign. Camellias sing Spring don’t they.

        I like staying in and cooking on special occasions some times, I think you get some thing much nicer to eat. Steak and baked sweet potatoes sound perfect, bet the steak was lovely. Glad Leona is feeling a bit better. I just hope in the morning that storm Doris had not damaged the buds on our Camellia, will be sad if she has.

    Happy Anniversary! It’s fun to think about the history of these scraps – and what memories they may have held for the previous owner. I like how you are creating new stories and memories for these pieces.
