There are a few cutting errors in block 34. Read the sewing directions for the correct sizes

Jeanenne Nielsen

I. wish there had been more instructions on how to put the rings and blocks together for those of us who have never done something like this. I have everything ready to sew together, but didn’t quite know how to sew the rings on the blocks.

Hi Jeanenne! Take a look at our Double Wedding Ring 101 article for instructions and tips. http://www.aqsblog.com/double-wedding-ring-101
Thanks! -Emily
