Double Wedding Ring Quilt by Grandma Ruby

Just look what my sweet mother-in-law gave me for Christmas:  a double wedding-ring quilt made by her mother, Larry's Grandma Ruby, in about 1974 or so.  It's machine-pieced and hand-quilted, and the fabric of the small pieces in the curves consists of scraps left over from clothes Grandma Ruby had made many years earlier for Norma and her three sisters.

A few raveled spots need to be repaired, but, for the most part, it's in good condition.  The edge is scalloped.

I am honored that she gave it to me.
