Beautiful!

I, too, have wanted to make this pattern for a long time but have never been brave enough to try it.

Hm... Crazy Genious.  Perhaps I need a Tshirt made with that one on it.  Wink

I'll tell you a secret.  It didn't make this project much easier, but it did save some time.  Strip piecing.  You sew the curves as strips first, then cut them across the seams to get a chain of blocks in a row.  Then you resew the seams at an angle to get the curve.  THEN you piece everything together.  It doesn't help with all of the sewing on curves, but at least you don't have 6 million little squares to start with!

Thanks for all of the compliments!  They're keeping me going as I work on my current projects!

I have seen paper foundations for the curved part of the double wedding ring.  I bet those would help with accuracy, but your method had terrific results.

It sounds like you really took to quilting fast.  The bed sized ones are the hardest I think because they are so cumbersome under the sewing machine.  I learned to quilt several years ago and made a wall hanging.  I loved it so much that I couldn't wait to pick out my second project.  Unfortunately, I really didn't know that the pattern I picked was for advanced quilters.  It had little set-in corners, but thankfully, no curves.  I was doing it all by hand at that point and eventually finished it and hand quilted it.  After that I pay attention to difficulty and always machine sew.
