Morning’s Born With The Lights Of Love

I said I wasn’t likely to make another double wedding ring quilt, but a flash of inspiration and the motivation provided by the NYC Mod Quilt Guild’s Double Wedding Ring Challenge have me eating my words. So here is:

The quilt is all pieced, and was constructed by drawing a full-size pattern on freezer paper to ensure that the lines of the rays stayed consistent, then cutting out and paper-piecing the individual background pieces.

I used a double layer of batting to keep some puffiness in the rings, and then quilted all the rays with matching thread and a different quilting pattern for each color. I really love the way the back turned out:
