Unique Double wedding Ring Quilt

I went to the quilting bee at the local senior citizens center in Gainesville.  They meet every Wednesday at 9am and hand quilt people's quilts for them.  All of the money they get is donated back tot he center.  I am going to learn so much about the correct way to hand quilt!  This is the quilt they were working on.
 The entire thing is hand embroidered!  Isn't it gorgeous?
I went today to quilt and they had finished it up last week, so there was not any quilting to do!

They will be loading up a new quilt next week, so that will be fun!

Happy quilting!

Wow, I am amazed there are women who still meet to do that. I guess maybe in rural areas, but it is amazing. I live in Buffalo, NY and belong to a guild, and we do many charity quilts, but not like this. You will learn a lot.

What an amazing quilt! I have a quilt my Mom made for me years ago when she still hand quilted......something I'm afraid I don't ever plan to do...lol but I can certainly appreciate those who do!

I hand quilt all mine. My grandmother taught me how. Machines just mess me up.
