    Need help with double wedding ring quilt

    I am making this quilt: http://www.mccallsquilting.com/patte....html?idx=6913

    I have all the paper piecing done. Do I remove the paper before I put the next pieces together, or do I leave the paper on until after I sew the pieces together?

    Thanks for your help,

    Joan

    I leave it on, so that the seam allowances will match.
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

    Are you PP the arc sections? If so I would pin an arc section to next section with the paper attached. See if it looks like it's going to fit first. I think if you remove the paper the arcs may stretched due to the bias edge. If they are short, stretching could be a good thing (in which case I would remove the paper). If they fit just right, I would sew them together without removing the paper. I've never been brave enough to do one, so I'm not much help.

    the last thing you do after the top is done, is remove the papers.
