wet on wet watered down acrylic on fabric

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.

To Hold

By Ann Scott

I started sewing and designing using fabric, thread, and paper when I was a child. I taught myself to make quilts, at first not following the "rules," then watched some experts, learned the rules, and made many hand quilted and appliqued quilts. I spent years focusing on miniature landscape quilts. Now I am a fiber and mixed media artist and that encompasses everything I have a passion for. I have taught, lectured, and my work have show nationally and internationally, some pieces have been published.
