Betty has been busy quilting yet another quilt this winter & spring and, incredibly, has it almost finished. She just seems to be flying through them, especially when you compare it to the speed that I go. This one is the beautiful vintage Double Wedding Ring that Jane gave her last winter. It is going to be a beautiful garage sale find.
She's using rich colours of perle cotton to outline the rings - fuscia, gold, blue, purple, orange and green.
And then white thread for the pattern between the rings that gives the whole thing a very lacy effect...
as well as in the circular motif in the border.
The fabrics look much like Liberty prints, but I don't think that they are. Regardless, they are beautiful and so is the quilt. She is such a speedy little thing that I think the only thing that will slow her down is if we get some warmer weather and she can start moving her energy out to the flower and veggie gardens. I suspect that this will be off the frames before that happens....M
