Curves, Curves, and curves
revisited. I have been working on the quilt with curves I showed in my last post. I decided since most of the fabrics were retro, salvaged and a few new pieces I would consider it my "green" quilt and use green to separate some of the blocks.
While working on this piece I had, and still have many challenges. I was going to add a strip vertically between the blocks. But, after I added a strip to each block and found that going this way I would create too many seams that would have to be matches. So, I went to plan B,and offset each row by 2 inches and added a strip of a printed fabric on the end of every other block to make them all go together without having so many seams to match. I pride myself on doing things the easy way, so if I can't figure out an easy way to do it I'll put it aside and come back to it later.
I have a few more pieces of retro fabric that I'm thinking about cutting up and making another quilt. If you have any ideas for a nice design for either of these pieces please let me know so I don't have to think so hard this time.
