Back to Piecing

I am glad to be piecing again.


This is Winding Ways cut with the GO!. The pieces go together so well and it has been lots of fun to sew. This is about a quarter of the quilt, and it should be about 94" square when it is finished. The blocks are almost 8".


I have decided to have the edges of the quilt follow the curves of the blocks (well, really they are half blocks along the edge).

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

So pretty!!! I love the way the fabrics shade in and out of one another. Then the white fabric looks really cool. I like that the outer edge of the quilt will follow the curve of the design. It's going to be gorgeous!!

I think that is a great idea to leave the outside edge with the curve. Brilliant!! This is going to be a beautiful quilt, I look forward to seeing how you quilt it :)
