you'll also need a marking pen and if they're handy, a glue stick and a couple of manila folders or thin cardboard
Today we covered the paper piecing method for making the rings, and making templates for the melons. We worked all the way through to the completion of the first melon. all four melons are made the same way. simply lather, rinse, repeat. :wink:
The class will continue on Sunday, 3 Feb, starting at 2pm eastern USA time. we will start by adapting the pattern to make a solid center, then attach the four melons. we will also go over the options for continuing the wedding rings to make either one block (using the corner pieces); to make a table runner (using a second adaptation of the corner pattern pieces); or to make any size quilt top you choose.
Here are the photos and commentary from both classes, in one document.
