Could you let us know which method you are using for your wedding ring.  Some of them require more yardage than others.

Sandra - I guess this was your original post on this...

I went and got my book by John Flynn down from the shelf...the amount of material you need will change with teh size arc that you are going to use...

To give you some examples - For a 24" block - you will need for a 123" x 123 " which is a super king...

49 background centers - 112 melons, 224 arcs and 128 corner #1 and #2

for fabric for this size you need 1/2 yd for every 65 arcs so you would need a little less then 2 yards of 6 fabrics...

you need 1 yd of fabric for 6 centers and 13 melons so for this size you would need approximately 8 1/2 yds... and 1/4 yd makes 30 corner pieces so you a yd would give you 120 pieces so you would need about 1 1/4 yds for the # of corners you need...

so that comes to

2 yds of each of 6 fabrics for your arcs.

8 1/2 yds for your melons and centers

1 1/4 yds for each set of corner pieces...

I hope that gives you some idea...

That was for a 24" size block - he has blocks measuring 6, 9, 12, 15, 18 and 24 in his book... I believe the 2 I made years ago were the 9' block but if I was going to make a king size i would definetely go with the largest block size or the 18'" - if you want fabric amounts for the other block sizes let me know.

Hi, I've been wanting to make this quilt for a long time. I haven't been able to find it. Could you please tell me where I can get the directions. I saw a magazine cover on a show I think it was on the 1600 series just the pic I've been looking on here for it but can't find it and I know I may have that magazine but have so many to go thru if anyone knows where I can get this pattern please let me know. Thanks so much.

Sandra I have a king size double wedding ring in progress right now! I am using Eleanor Burns method with Quiltsmart fusible interfacing. Its kinda like applique...not sure how to explain it.  I had a difficult time figuring the yardage for it too....so I bought 5 or 6 yards of every color and 10 of the background. I had leftovers of the colors but the background fabric was a close call! Eleanor's method was pretty easy to do. And the quiltsmart interfacing helps keep everything in line. If you choose to do this method buy the interfacing at quiltinaday.com - its cheaper than anywhere else!  I finally finished piecing all the arcs and am in the process of piecing the blocks together.
