I’m finally sharing this little quilt. It was entered in a magazine contest but was not selected. Not too long ago I heard a successful wedding photographer say that “Photographs of the bride and groom wearing their wedding rings was passe, sooooo 1970s.” I understand what she is saying. I have seen rings staged in shells, flowers, even on top of cupcakes. Maybe it is because many couples have unattractive hands! Well, my husband and I were married in the 70s and the photograph of our rings on our hands is still one of my favorite photos. It was the inspiration for this quilt. It is a painted whole cloth and the lace in the corners was from a dress collar of one of my grandmothers.

She enjoys making videos lessons and demos for her YouTube channel in hopes of encouraging others to give quilting, fiber art, and mixed media a try. Ann admires knitting and crochet, and though she can’t knit and can only crochet a chain stitch, she’s discovered other ways to use yarn!
