Double Wedding Ring

Years ago Mary Ellen Hopkins wrote a book that made it easier to make a double wedding ring quilt. You have already seen my version with the pieced arcs.
This one is done with a print for the arc piece.
This saves you all the work of piecing the arcs. If you choose an interesting print this can be a very effective quilt.
The solid black is polished cotton and shows off the quilting well.
This is in a private collection and the owner gave me the photo showing it hanging in their home. It is perfect in their country home. Their collection includes several quilts I made.
The photo is clear enough that you can see the quilting if you enlarge it. I believe the quilting design in the black sections is from her book if I remember right!

I've used a circular cut here to go with the circular effect of the rings in the quilt.

This is beautiful. But what happens with the cut out parts? Or:
Isn't this a contradiction to the idea of creating with salvaged fabrics?

I'm not a big fan of double wedding ring but this is probably the most attractive one I have seen with the solid fabric arcs.
