Double Wedding Ring
Quilter: Elizabeth Ralph
Size: 98 x 63 inches (Twin Size)
Description: Tennessee handmade quilt. Very soft, vibrant fabrics in coordinating colors. What can be more romantic than a Double Wedding Ring quilt? Although this pattern is often thought of as a 20th century quilt, it appears to have evolved from a very old design. The very name inspires thoughts of romance and wedlock, and certainly many of these scalloped-arc quilts have been started to celebrate impending marriages - although they may not have been finished until the first child's appearance! Although many quilter's catalog the Double Wedding Ring (DWR) in its most popular period - the Great Depression - this lively pattern is still popular today as can be seen in this exquisite Tennessee handmade quilt. Another example of interlocking rings is found in the Gimmal ring, popular in Europe in the 15th and 16th centuries. During the engagement period, one was worn by the man and the other by the woman. When they married, the two rings were fitted together and worn by the wife. The Double Wedding Ring pattern was first published by Capper's Weekly in 1928. The beauty of this quilt is that it is small enough to be used as a coverlet on the end of a bed, or as a decorative piece in a den, or on a child’s bed as a symbol of the love that binds.
