“Liberated Wedding Ring” Quilt

This is the first quilt on my new Innova longarm.

It is made from the “liberated” wedding ring block designed by Freddy Moran and Gwen Marston in their book FREDDY AND GWEN COLLABORATE AGAIN: FRIENDS.

I used solid and print scraps to make the rings, but went to my grey solids for the backgrounds. As you know, greys can be blue grey, green grey, brown grey, etc. So I just mixed them all up for this scrappy look.

I bought this backing on sale some time back and I thought it would be fun to use it here. I like it.

The green grey binding blends with the teal on the backing and looks just fine on the front.

I quilted with an icy blue thread that blended well on both back and front. The pantograph provided lovely texture I think: Check and Chase by Lorien Quilting.
