Carpe Diem

Today is the day. Today is the day that I'm actually going to sew some curves. Get ready, people... get ready for the awesomeness that will be my curvy patchwork!

I wanted to show ya'll photos of my two mug rugs that I made for my mother in law - the herringbone and the applique tree-thingy but she left yesterday with them in her bag. I will be making some more minis later this week - who knows, the curvies may end up as minis.

To be continued...

Part II

Okay... the curve master foot is AWESOME! Here are my completed curves:

first one down!

retro flowers layout minus solid pieces and sashing

another possible layout minus some solid pieces

I used the retro flowers acrylic templates that can be purchased at TabSlot. The quarter circles all measure in at 4". I trimmed them down to 3.75" to have them match. The patterned fabrics are Piper by Dear Stella and the solids are Kona charms in natural and black.

I missed out on the Ellison Lane Mini Quilt Challenge and I did want to try something new. I'm glad that I finally sewed the dreaded curves. I plan to make some more of these blocks and make a small quilt out of them. I really want to make some larger drunkard's path blocks and make a mini quilt similar to this.

Thanks for visiting. I hope you all try something new this week. It's really fun!

I'm linking up with My Quilt Infatuation's Needle and Thread Thursday.

Go make stuff!
