15 Of The Most Beautiful Double Wedding Ring Quilt Designs

Did you know that there is a quilt pattern that symbolizes romance, longevity, and love?

The pattern I am talking about is the Double Wedding Ring quilt pattern (DWR), and it is a gorgeous canvas of interwoven rings creating a beautiful quilt top.

I want to go over a little history of the wedding quilt, show a wide variety of examples of the pattern, and provide links to a few free DWR patterns.

What is a Double Wedding Ring Quilt?

The double wedding ring quilt pattern is characterized by several interlocking rings that symbolize two people becoming one during a wedding ceremony. The look and feel or style of the quilt can vary significantly depending on the fabric selection.

They are generally made as gifts for newlyweds or those celebrating anniversaries. This quilt is a beautiful gift made with love that also represents the love between the couple receiving the gift. 

The History of the Double Wedding Ring Quilt

The DWR pattern has been around for quite some time, dating back to the mid to late 1800s. The design’s popularity took off around The Great Depression era, probably because it is a “scrap friendly” pattern.

People were getting married during The Depression, but friends and family couldn’t afford to buy brand new fabric or give costly gifts to the newlyweds. Women could dive into their fabric stash from yardage they purchased years before or cut up old bedding and clothing to use to make this special gift.

With the beautiful symbolism and timeless look of these quilts, the DWR pattern has stood the test of time and is still a go-to gift idea for weddings and anniversaries that couples and families will cherish for decades.
