The Wedding Ring Quilt
This morning, the first snow of spring
fell like a curtain of lace across the mountains
spilling leftovers of winter
down into the stunted pine brushed valley.
The touch of your smile
held the warmth of weathered hands;
eyes of silver and sage glistened
when I said, "I hope it snows six feet."
You gathered our wedding ring quilt
around the curve of me tighter,
knowing the soft why of my words.

We just had our first spring snow. My husband is out snowplowing, and it has begun to snow again. I knew I had to feature this wonderful poem by my friend. You can find more of her poetry in her book Journey On: Beauty and Grit Along the Way (Kindle version) or paperback version.
The Double Wedding Ring quilt block is part of my Egg Money Sampler Quilt, done as a block of the month with my quilting group, The Persian Pickles. We used Eleanor Burns book Egg Money Quilts for our patterns. This quilt block is also known as Endless Chain, Rainbow, Around the World, King Tut, and Double Wedding Bands.
