Vintage 1930s Double Wedding Ring Quilt

This incredible, vintage 1930s Double Wedding Ring quilt is in pristine condition.  It is completely hand quilted and was lovingly pieced together decades ago.  The colors are crisp and traditional for the era.

Probably the most amazing thing of all about this quilt is what it cost.  I have seen vintage 1930s Double Wedding Ring quilts in antique shops, antique malls and for sale online.  This sweetie was found in a thrift store.  A thrift store!

Someone gave grandma's lovingly made Double Wedding Ring quilt away to the thrift store!  And I picked it up for 15 bucks.  I saw it out of the corner of my eye and snapped it right up, I knew what a treasure I had found!

Check out the handwork of these stitches on the curve of the Double Wedding Ring:

Here you can see the backing of the quilt and it's sweet shade of lavender.  Interestingly, the purple used on the front of the quilt is a different shade than the back, a brighter, redder purple.

The take home message is keep your eyes open, you never know what goodies you'll find or where.  For $15.00 I purchased a real treasure in this vintage 1930s Double Wedding Ring quilt and you can bet that I ALWAYS check the quilt section when I visit the thrift store!
