My first swan-dive into curved piecing came courtesy of a co-worker who’d purchased some templates from a quilt shop during one of her many do it yourself shop hops. L assured me curved piecing was a snap even though I’d heard the same tune from my aunt Patsy. Frankly, I didn’t believe either one of them. It all sounded like an evil plan to drive me over the edge. But wonder of wonders…it was pretty easy and I sewed two charm packs worth of curved blocks.
And they sat in a box for over a year…
The other night I unearthed them and started playing around. The prints are Civil War era, not my personal favorite. This is one of the scenarios I came up with. My brain doesn’t like randomness at all and keeps pushing for more symmetry please! Maybe I’ll go with a more traditional Drunkard’s Path. Stay tuned.
I’m linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced. Won’t you join me?
Happy quilting, y’all!
