My First Curves

When the October Queen picked her block fear came over me.  This Bee has pushed me into new things.  In the Spring it was paper piecing.  This month was curved seams.  This was our Queen’s version.

No automatic alt text available.

I printed out the pattern and looked at it for several days.  I read and re-read the instructions that Alyce at Blossom Heart Quilts detailed.  I read the link she shared for doing curves without pins,  She Can Quilt.  It looked so easy, I went and tried.  I think it worked.

 

 

This Bee has taken me to paper piecing, it wasn’t bad, but I can’t imagine doing an entire quilt.  The paper piles would be overwhelming.

Now I have done curved seams.  I find it hard to say seams, there were only 4 for this block, but it puts me on my way to more new things.

I am linking up on the gorgeous Friday with some friends, stop over and check their parties out today.

    This block is on my list too! You nailed it! It’s always nice to broaden your horizons…you can find out if a different technique is for you or not!

    Yes, it worked. Curves look hard but are very forgiving. Your block looks lovely. When it comes to paper-piecing, I am still not comfortable. But freezer paper can be a big savior.
