|Woo Hoo brain wave!|
When I looked down I realized the block looked much better that way. So I cut my 5" white strips and then cut them again so they were 9 and 1/4" then I cut them to match the first patterned blocks.
I realized I had to re-press half of the patterned block so the seams would nestle together.
|Changed seams so they nestle :)|
Then I laid everything out ready to chain stitch.
Once they were lined up I started piecing the patterned fabric back together then I started the curve seaming. Now I have never done curved seams like this (that I can remember). I started at the squared off end and pinned the middle points but after 2 or 3 I stopped pinning the middle and just went for it!
|Placement practise and fold line.|
|Side one attached!|
|These curves press out really nicely.|
|Side two attached and needs a wee trim.|
Now I have a few more decisions about pattern placement then I'll be able to work toward completing this small quilt. Come back to see more progress! (Hmmmm? Do I make random shapes or do I make a squiggle? Hmmmm?)
