Double Wedding Ring quilt and detail

Bettye made this traditional patchwork quilt  from scraps left from clothes she had made for her three daughters.  The youngest, Cindy, says  “I can just look at that quilt
and remember an Easter dress I hated and a pair of plaid bell bottom pants I wore in the 5th or 6th grade that I loved! ” It was the first quilt she entered in a competition, the  1970 Alabama State Fair. She won a blue ribbon. (Photo courtesy of Jimmy Martin).
