The Double Wedding Ring Selvage Baby Quilt




A few weeks ago I sat in my "studio" wondering what to sew next. I saw my selvages and somehow came up with the idea of using them in a double wedding ring quilt pattern. I enjoyed the making and the result so much, that I went on and finished four blocks of it, the perfect size for a babyquilt.


Today I have my day of, and so I took my good camera and the cute quilt and drove to a  special sight at the edge of Berlin to the "Insel der Jugend" ("The isle of youth"). This little island surrounded by the River Spree is very special to me, as I went there every day a few years ago, when I was in the middle of a heavily depressed time. The calm, the sun and the water helped me to recover and because of the nice landscape I came back later for fashion- and now even for quilt-shootings. As I did today.



Unfortunately it was very windy and I forgot to bring all the tools which could have fixed the quilt to trees, railings, bushes etc.
Because of that I was quite afraid a few times and already imagined me jumping into the icecold and dirty water to get my lovely quilt out. Luckily me and the quilt arrived safely back home. With some nice pictures on the camera.

Here you can see them, be aware, there are many of them!



By the way, the pattern I used is from Aneela Hoeys Pickledish Quiltalong from 2010. Back then I made my first Queen sized quilt with this pattern.
As some recommended I will enter this quilt in the DWR Callenge hosted by the NYC MOD Quilt Guild. Who knows... :-)
