I've been in a procrastinating mood this week. I have an essay and stuff to hand in at class next week and although it is on track I keep distracting myself with bits and pieces rather than just knuckling down and finishing it off.
I did discover this new technique for circles which also applies to curves http://www.hgtv.com/crafting/pieced-curves-so-simple/index.html so decided to have a play.
I dug out some fabric from my not very nice pile (nothing wrong with it but it was stuff I bought when I started quilted before I had discovered designer ranges), my freezer paper which I haven't used much and some pritt stick which is the only glue I had. No idea if it is fabric safe, but it was only for playing with.
I ended up with this mini and actually, I quite like it. The first curved seams went a bit wonky and had to be redone, but by the time I got to the circles (deliberately wonky) I was happy with it.
I then decided to practice circular echo quilting as I was playing...
It is actually flatter and more squared off than it looks and is about 9.5 x 12 inches.
