Happily Ever After

Posted on November 30, 2013 by prairiemoonquilts in Challenges, Quilts

I finished my piece for the Double Wedding Ring Challenge! Woohoo!EZDWRChallengeBlogLogo

Seriously, I did not think I’d get it done in time, but I did – with 2 hours to spare, no less!

And here it is:ShellyPagliai

I’ve named it Happily Ever After, because it’s just such a happy quilt. Happy colors, happy fabrics, happy flowers, happy quilting. I’m really happy with it!

I used pieced rings and plain rings, and filled the middle with some fun applique. I fused on some flowers and leaves, and then did hand blanket stitching and embroidery around them. There are some smaller flowers in the center of each outer ring as well.DWR-HEAcu

I had a lot of fun quilting it, too. I used a light gray thread called “Silver” and it blended in wonderfully. You can see the quilting better on the back.DWR-HEAback

Here’s a shot with no flash, which shows the quilting even more.DWR-HEAback2

My backing has words on it, like peace, hope, love . . . things like that. I think it fits for a Double Wedding Ring quilt, don’t you?
