One of the stories from the NQR:
"This quilt was made as a technical challenge. The Home Makers' group/club were constructing Double Wedding Ring by hand. I decided that if you could put in a sleeve i.e. a curve you could construct Double Wedding Ring pieces by machine. And I did! This was the start of encouraging my mother to move away from utility quilts and concentrate on making pretty quilts. My mother Estella Goldie Hendershot Dingley (1898-1976) made many quilts and quilt tops in her lifetime. Estella made 100 or so quilts and tops from this time on." [Olive Goldie Dingley Creek 27.9.97]
