The Double Wedding Ring Quilt has an interesting history. It is thought this style of ring came to America through Germanic people who settled in Pennsylvania in the last 17th century. This pattern of interlocking rings was seen on coverlets, ceramics and other decorative objects in early America. This ring motif was popular in Europe in the 15th and 16th centuries. They consisted of rings that could be interlocked. During the engagement one was worn by the man and the other by the woman. When they married the two rings were fitted together to be worn by the wife. A great Wedding Present! Note the interesting collection of batik prints selected for this quilt. Will work well with any coloring scheme. Well pieced and quilted by a Lancaster Amish woman. Signed by its creator, the well respected quilt designer, C Jean Horst of Lancaster. Here is another idea -- what about picking your own custom colors and we will make your quilt. Paint chips work well to give us he colors you might like. Nice idea if you like picking your own colors!!
The back of the quilt is covered with Northcotte marbled cotton print. The quilting density is good, averaging about 100 linear inches of stitching per square foot. The stitching is exceptional with 9 stitches per inch! Imagine doing that? A high quality quilt.
