Out of my comfort zone
My sewing time has definitely taken a hit this year. I am attempting this double wedding ring quilt, and, um, it is humbling to say the least. I made the first full circle. There were problems in the seams and such, so I ripped things apart, thinking I could fix the problem. I really didn't. There were more problems. So, I just kept going. And more parts don't line up. I honestly don't know how to fix the problems. I used this pattern, which has paper piecing for each arc. That seemed like it would make things a bit more accurate. Or, so I thought.
This is where I need help. I obviously can't keep going this way. Does anyone know a better way to make this pattern? I'm generally not much of a pattern follower, and have only recently become comfortable with curved piecing. Thanks!
