Low-Key Ring: My Goal Quilt

Low-Key Ring

When I started quilting, one goal I set for myself was to get “good enough” to make a double wedding ring quilt. Well, I’ve reached that goal. It is a beautiful, traditional quilt. It does take a lot of time, and focus. Curves aren’t easy for everyone. I don’t find curves particularly easy, though I do find them totally doable.

I love the look of low volume quilts. There is a lot to be said for that calm, easy-going appearance. Since I’ve accumulated a good variety of low volume prints, I thought it was finally time to make a quilt out of them. I wanted to do something a little different, and one night I suddenly thought about adding little slivers of saturated solids in with a plethora of low volume.
