It had been a great plan. Scarlet and Gold are the colors for the US Marine Corps. By keeping the ring sections solid red (compared with a traditional Double Wedding Ring which has pieced ring sections) I thought it would look more contemporary, perfect for a young couple.
1) I could abandon the project since the event was past.
2) I could finish it and find a different recipient.
I spent Thanksgiving Weekend making "melons" to finish this quilt. It is a throw size quilt - about 58" x 68".
Now I have a fantastic flimsy that I want to use as a fundraiser quilt. The groups that I have in mind support injured/killed police & fire fighters or missing soldiers.
So quilters....how much would you pay for a chance at this quilt?
