Jinny sales this on her site along with a great marking pencil. It has black, pink and white pencils all in one. I think these are the reason I was able to get my blocks the correct size this month. I just feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to take a class taught by Jinny Beyer.

The March block we will begin to learn appliqué. One of the reasons I took this class on Craftsy was to improve my appliqué skills. I love the look of hand appliqué, but I am not very good at doing it myself. A few years ago I bought this pattern by Judy Niemeyer.
I felt it would be a challenge just to make the double wedding ring but add in the appliqued flowers and I was more than intimidated by this one. I am hoping by the time I finish Jinny Beyer's quilt I will be more confident with appliqué, so I thought I should get Flowers for my Wedding Ring finished up to the point where I start the appliqué.
So far I only have the fabric for the rings. I am using cherry, blueberry and plum Bali pops. I love the rich colors.
Deb York suggested a black background, which I hadn't even considered before but am now. I was thinking shades of white. Once I get the rings pieced I think I will lay them on a couple different background colors to see if that helps.
Love the paper piecing so far. Judy Niemeyer has this down to an art. I have half of all the rings finished.
