Double Wedding Rings:
Two Sisters' Chuppah

This gift, a two piece Jewish marriage canopy, was commissioned by grandparents for their two granddaughters. The two halves shown in the picture separate to form a wall hanging for each sister's home until the next wedding brings the halves together again. Initially created for the first sister's wedding, it patiently awaits use by the second sister and future generations. The chuppah was based on an outline developed by the sisters.

Materials: commercial and hand-dyed cottons, polyester batting, cotton and polyester batting, cotton and polester thread.

Techniques: fused appliqué, machine quilted
