    When you say "entwined", do you mean double wedding ring? I found these by Googling "paper pieced double wedding ring".

    I did 2 rings from a double wedding ring quilt for that purpose. Haven't finished it yet, though. Mine is for a wall hanging.

    I did that once. This is what I did. I pieced 2 circles of pieced arcs leaving one seam open on each circle. Before appliqueing to the background I interlaced the two circle before sewing the final seams and appliqueing in place.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    I am a member of Carol Doak's Yahoo group. I don't remember seeing any wedding ring patterns on her website, though. The wedding ring pp pattern is a somewhat challenging pattern (in my opinion). I've been pp for 15+ years and I haven't attempted one yet! Call me a coward. www.quilterscache.com is a good place to try to find the pattern. Good luck. Post pictures when you can.
