Precious Double Wedding Ring Quilt

Precious Double Wedding Ring Quilt

I was quite humbled to receive the family quilt -- that I had no idea even existed -- in the mail yesterday. I'm sure it was made between the last 1800s into the early 1900s.

I'm still floating on cloud nine having been bequeathed this family memory.

It has patches from my Aunt's baby clothes sewn into it. She was born in 1927 and it existed before her birth.

There are many online sites with information about the heritage of quilting in America. Some are excellent, containing well-researched scholarly information, such as The International Quilt Study and Museum at the University of Nebraska - Lincoln.

Others, such as Block Central's Quilt Directory contain links to many fine sites that pertain not only to the history of quilts, but to other elements of quilting as well.
