CURVES


CURVES

This year at CQI we have a monthly challenge. It goes as far as we want to take it. One of the pieces of the challenge this month is curves! I LOVE curves!! BUT....I haven't been able to do them on the machine! After MUCH wandering and guidance and trepidation... I finally sat down at my machine and we reached a truce!!! I have the basic idea down now of how to do this! Now i'll have to actually PLAN a block so I can utilize it my new skill! LOL!! I'm not usually much of a planner because that opens the door a crack to my inner critic that i'm ALWAYS trying to shove away! But.... I have one idea I would like to try so I think i'll map it out, dye some fabric (that bit is necessary for this idea to work) and then try and piece. Now....to find the fabric! LOL!!

That's a great curvy piece! I think it just takes a little practice. After doing a bunch of wedding ring blocks to help out two friends, I found it worked much easier! =)

Care to tell us how to do those fabulous curves? A long time ago I too tried to do them on the machine, but then couldn't fold back the fabric correctly and gave up...

Hopefully you'll feel the need to share your tips with us! I think this one is pretty and would be beautiful with seam treatments!!
