Double Wedding Ring (..Thank you, mom!)

I have waited for so long for my turn to have this Double Wedding Ring (DWR). Almost the last one who received it because of some reasons.. but it does't matter, I'm very pleased to have it now. 

My mom made 4 quilts for us (me, my sister and my two sister in law). I was in charge to design the colors and to chose the fabrics for her DWR projects. We made blue DWR for my younger sister, green for older sister in law and red for the youngest... I forgot to take the pictures of their beautiful quilts.

My mom is very talented, she sewed very fast, almost without any mistakes. She finished this purple DWR 9 years ago, it was her second DWR project... That's why she became so expert to make DWR :))

I made the embroidery label for her that time... hmmm.. I think I should make it again for my DWR.

I made this DWR for my quilting class project. I only made 9 rings, because we want to do it in short time and in our class we made it with hand sewing :)

One of my friend who joined the DWR class brought some Bali Batik from Bali, I asked her to make it like this and she love it. I told her that my mom made 4 DWRs for us, and I challenged her to do the same for her 4 children who are married... She just laughed! ( but I know she can do it )

May your marriage bring you all the exquisite excitement married should bring, and may life grant you also patience, tolerance, and understanding.
May you have happiness, and may you find it making one another happy.
May you have love, and may you find it loving one another.
