    Red face Should have done the math first

    Making a double wedding ring using batiks and want it to be queen size. I've been cutting and sewing and cutting and sewing have a wonderful time..will be scrappy.

    Looked at the directions...need 54 blocks..not bad....BUT need over 250 arcs and need 6 small pieces to make ONE arc. Been working for two days...have 54 arcs done.

    This is gonna take awhile..don't cha think?
    If you don't work on it you'll never finish it.

    You can't have 100% done til after you have 20% done. Keep at it!

    It may take some time but I bet it will be beautiful when you are done.

    You took on an amazing, complex quilt pattern that demands precision. Take it one "ring" at a time, do your best and you will be so impressed when you are ready to assemble them all.

    That's a lot to have done in two days. And really at the rate your going, you should have the arcs done by the end of the month.
