    Thanks so much for the info. I have read a lot of good things about her pattern.
    What I make with my hands, I give of my heart.

    Kaye Wood aired a video of Cheryl actually using this method recently.

    Also - the book comes with the acrylic tool.

    Just a word to the impatient quilter - I have this pattern and it requires precise, careful measuring, cutting and placing of pieces as well as a perfect (and I do mean perfect) 1/4 seam. Do-able for small projects but I won't be doing anything quilt-size. I'm thinking I will use the tool to create a double wedding ring quilt ala Eleanor Burns' applique method.

    I beg to differ.....I am making this quilt for my daughter and son-in-law in king size. It is very easy. I am not the best quilter in the world. Although I have been quilting for some 25+ years I only do a quilt on the average of 1 every several years. I do alot of other crafts inbetween quilts. Anyway... I started this quilt 7 years ago. Inbetween 4 moves it still is not complete. Althought it became MIA for 3 years during the move before this one. I found it. I am now working on finishing it. I am doing it as a scrap wedding ring using different strips for each circle except the ones that will be in the "corners". I am also doing a monogram in the center of some of the circles now that I have an embroidery machine. I will use other quilt designs to fill in the centers of the rest of the circles and the center circles will have their names and wedding date. I have some 15 circles done. Not hard at all and I can say that I probably don't have consistant 1/4 seams. I have pinned some of the circles together to see how it will look. The circles go together easily although you do have to pin the sectioned circle to the backing to stitch it together.
