The thirty-five blocks that make up this cheery quilt utilize many different cotton and feed sack prints. A combination of machine and hand-stitching was used in piecing the blocks together. The solid yellow background and “spider web” quilting emphasize the interlocking rings. The quilt has a scalloped edge formed by completing the rings and is bound with green cotton tape.
