Double Wedding Ring Quilts-Traditions Made Modern: Full-Circle Sketches from Life based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
I enjoyed this book, reading as a long-time traditional quilter trying to expand into modern quilting. This isn't a book for someone looking for help making a traditional Double Wedding Ring Quilt, but it's inspirational for someone looking for ways to open themselves up to evolving in a more modern direction. There are patterns and information for recreating her quilts, if you choose to, but also lots of encouragement to use her ideas and methods to apply to other traditional patterns instead. It's more an explanation of her thinking and process than a how-to book.
