The beginnings of my next quilt project. My client loves to scuba dive and that became my inspiration for fabric choices. She also specified that she wanted a double wedding ring pattern so I'm now familiarizing myself with this style. It ain't easy! But I'm happy for the challenge and I know those curved seams can only get easier with practice!

Ultimately, there will be several rings interlocking, covering the span of the quilt top. Some wedding ring inspiration via Google Images:

The double wedding ring is an old and traditional pattern, extremely popular in the 1940's.

A modern, sawtooth variation

This looks to be an older quilt but with a modern aesthetic. I love the choice of creating stripes within the pattern and the quirky orange as the background.
