Hi, just love circles. Have you tried 'vilene' (as called in Australia). It's soft has iron adhesive on one side. So cut fabric circles & vilene same size. Sew vilene & right side of fabric circles together using 1/4 inch seam allowance, cut a small cross in centre of vilene. Clip fabric edges every inch or so (otherwise won't be flat. Turn thru small cut. Then with round circle adhesive side vilene, position on the background. If square, centre it and iron on. Voila. Then edge with whatever - machine or hand embroidery or other finish. (Just remember the glue side is on the inside of the circle to begin with so DO NOT iron that!!!) Have a go mine looks great with 3 Perle DMC cotton in feather stitch. downunder Susan

Why is it called "Single Ladies Quilt"? The first time I've ever seen this pattern. I tried a double wedding ring quilt 16 years ago (the first quilt I ever made) and failed MISERAB LY! (not recommended, lol) Gave up shortly after that and donated all the pieces to my older and more experienced quilting friends that made a beautiful quilt out of it!
