The Double Wedding Ring Quilt Pattern represents our American culture and is one of the easier patterns to recognize.  It represents the romance and mysteries of timeless love.

Trying to increase sales during an economically-depressed time, newspapers of the 1920′s published quilt patterns.

For the first time, quilt makers could be introduced to a new pattern all at the same time.

Newspaper sales rose and women began to make quilts.  To combat dreary life circumstances, colorful fabrics and lively patterns took center stage.

Women flocked to the newsstands or made certain their “husband’s” subscriptions didn’t expire – even if she must use her own “egg” money!

The late 1920′s brought us this beloved pattern in Capper’s Weekly.  Homemakers embraced quilt making, again, with enthusiasm, like their grandmothers had.  The love for quilts had diminished during the “roaring ’20′s” as morality declined and became a concern for the established leaders of the day, and families everywhere.

As The Great Depression hit our country, shaking us to our core, we remembered what brought us strength in our past so we could rebuild our own future.  We had to remember what had made our foundation so strong.  We would raise our nation, again women knew their part was vital – to rebuild our country even if the men would take the credit.

My parents were born during the 1920′s, so I was raised as the youngest of a large family with values and beliefs different than those of my peers.

My mother was raised by elderly grandparents and my father was one of the younger children of a very large family.  Our ideas were old fashioned – really outdated by the rest of the world.  Today, as I make my butter, yogurt, bread, noodles, pie crusts, sheets, clothes, and yes – my real passion – quilts, I can’t help but feel a connection to the women that lived so long before me.

What about the young woman that left her Tennessee home in the 1850′s with her new groom to homestead in the Ozark Mountains, filled with bubbling springs, trees and the ever-present rocks?  We know so little about her, but we know she made quilts – somehow – between her endless chores.  I am her descendant and I am Ozark Mountain Quilter.

We know her favorite colors, favorite quilt patterns, if she was a perfectionist and when she got her sewing machine.

So much of the history of our women is written solely through her quilts.

When The Great Depression hit our sacred Hills, like women everywhere, the women held the family and farm together.

Cow and chicken feed came in printed cloth sacks – an answered prayer to the resourceful women of the Ozark Mountains.  Today, we can relive a small part of our history through reproduction fabrics.

The farm my dad was born on had been in the family since the 1850′s.  My brother and family still live there – nearly 160 years later.  The land still whispers to her offspring.  Her descendants are sprinkled over many states, but the Ozark Mountains continue to call home her children.

One of the greatest joys a quilt maker today can experience is seeing her history in the form of a quilt used by someone she loves.  Whether it is a child, a good friend or a family in her church that lost their home to a tornado or a fire, a quilt maker is first and foremost a loving, giving, compassionate, full of passion woman that has been given the gift to connect to the women before her.

As my oldest child, a tall lanky 17 year old boy, sleeps under one of my quilts, I can’t help but feel a special kinship to the women that survived homesteading, droughts, sick babies, untimely deaths of loved ones, The Great Depression and teenagers.  I pat his dog curled at the foot of his bed and say a little prayer.

As I check on my youngest child, a fifteen year old girl that has an unbreakable spirit, I notice her dog has covered another quilt with the hair that only a lab can shed.  Her love for quilts is so deeply instilled that I know she will face life at full speed.

On each of my childrens’ wedding day, they will both receive the only gift that I can possibly find worthy of giving:  a Double Wedding Ring Quilt that has been signed and dated, waiting for their histories to be lived, their stories to be written.

You can give a Double Wedding Ring Quilt to your children, nieces, nephews, grandchildren and other young couples just beginning their lives together.

You can provide a couple with a constant reminder of love’s never ending promise.

Certainly, a Double Wedding Ring Quilt given to a couple celebrating their anniversary would bring as much joy.

This quilt kit will allow you to jump start that heirloom masterpiece hidden inside you, waiting to be made.

You have the chance to record your own legacy.
