I found the paper piecing method to be really easy, especially once you have done a few and get over the 'angle' of the little squares when added. I love this quilt and it's by far the most intricate I've ever done (and it is on my bed FOREVER!). It is a labour of love but it's really not difficult at all! It's just a rhythm and a series of tasks; it won't be done in a day. Once you have a cheat sheet and your fabric cut and organized, it's just easy sewing! You can do it!!!! I documented the entire process on my blog: overthekitchencounter and you can search for the 'double wedding ring' to see the posts if this link doesn't work.
I hope that helps. Seriously, if you can stitch on a line, and can do paper piecing, you can do it!!!! It's just a process, right? Nothing to fear! Please stay in touch and ask me (or Gail) any questions - she's lovely! I met her in person and she signed my quilt! :)
