Unusual Take 
on a Classic Design

The "rings" here are appliqued rather than pieced,
the typical construction technique of "Double Wedding Ring" quilts.

There are tons of Little Pieces in this Big Quilt.  They are machine applied to the background, a rather heavy cotton (much like a light duck).  

The tiny scale of the many pieces and the narrow arcs create the looks of ever intersecting circles ...    I see "rainbow ripples."  A friend, much more
scientifically-minded than I, sees atoms.
 
This piece has no batting, and no back, and is as it was intended: 
The edges are very skillfully and finely finished. 

Please see the back and edge in the last photo: There's a very narrow facing on the back, which meets the front and fashioned into a very tidy knife edge.
