#9: 1930's Quilt Block-"Double Wedding Ring"

The Double Wedding Ring quilt block pattern was published by the Lansing State Journal in the 1930's along with this text:

"Day by day the beauty of Colonial America is making its way into the modern home, and nothing is more eagerly pursured today than the antique quilts—the bright colored bed coverings that were the pride of our grandmothers. The modern woman is enjoying the thrill of creating these same beautiful patterns with her own hands.
We have had so many requests for quilt patterns that we have completed a new book of Colonial quilts, showing both new and old quilt designs in patchwork, embroidery and applique patterns, also quilting designs for every type of quilting. All of the illustrations are in color.

The quilt shown [below] is one of the oldest patterns that has been handed down, and is very beautiful when finished."Do you own or have you made a Double Wedding Ring quilt?
