A modern twist on a traditional design

At least that is what I am hoping for. I did three wedding rings and have over lapped them, then I pressed the edges down. My goal is to cut out the backing and batting in the round shapes and then quilt and stitch. When I complete it, (probably tonight while Mr. Hunter plays hockey) I will take more pictures. This is for Mr. Hunter's mommy. We fly out to Vancouver this Friday so it has to be done! Here are my three rings so far:
Oh, look at that messy table. Its a wonder I have room to even work.

This is my backing fabric.

This will be for the middle of the rings.
I think it will be a pretty cool twist to a traditional pattern. Hopefully I do get it done tonight to show you how it turned out. After this, I have to come up with something for Mr Hunters sister and hubby. Not too sure what to do for them yet. I only have 3 days to figure it out. Eeek!

If you want to enter my give away, there is still time, I will choose the lucky winner when I get back from Vancouver. To enter, please go here.



  1. What a great twist! Your MIL should be very happy to recieve your gift!!

  2. This is so pretty! I have a lot of the 30's prints you used at my house, too! 30's make such bright, happy projects. You'll be your MIL's favorite person.

  3. Very pretty. It reminds me of an old fashioned quilt.

  4. I like those rings. Very neat idea.

  5. I love the 30's fabric that you used. I am sure your MIL will love it.
