Friendship Ring quilt
The quilt is in good condition. The background and borders are sturdy fabric. Some of the ring fabrics have deteriorated but most are fine. The rings are put together in an interesting way. Those patches are hand pieced together. They were laid atop the gray centers. The rings were then attached with machine stitching, which goes around the outside and inside of the ring and then along the edge of one piece so the ring is connected.
This is hand quilted in a grid. It's possible it came from the South as it has no batting. It's backed with an old flannel blanket.
