What a day I had. Yes, that’s right, another guild workshop.
I wasn’t originally going to take the “Curve Play” workshop our quilters’ guild was doing, but then I thought why not!
I must admit that working with curves was a wee bit intimidating. But I’m glad I took the workshop. Each of us bought the Curve Play pattern by Fun Easy Designed.
The basic premise is you take a number of squares. Take the template, and cut. Then mix them two sections, so each fabric is with another. Stitch. The neat thing, there is no real setting in… the pattern is designed to have some “extra” bits left over. They remain until you square up your block. Once you have your curves stitched in… you take up to 5 of these pieces, and with the template… cut again. Switch them all up, piece together, and now you have your block. Then arrange your blocks to make a pleasing design with the fabrics.
I was able to produce 9 blocks during the workshop. For a small quilt, I need 15 more.
I have seen this quilt pattern primarily made with oriental style fabrics. I wanted to do something different. I chose a purple fabric that had some circles and lines which were bright colours. I coordinated with some other bright colours.
These are my blocks randomly placed to get a feel for how this quilt is going to be.
Another quilt to be finished…
