Earlier this year, I had several “Curvaceous Piecing for the Precision Impaired” workshops scheduled, and so I wanted to make a new class sample. I made Ohio Star blocks using free-hand curved lines, and all bright fabrics (which is almost all I ever use!)
I really love piecing a long border and cutting it with free-hand curves, and then using curvaceous piecing to sew it to the quilt. Most people think a long curved border is appliqued on, but it isn’t. The curvaceous piecing is MUCH faster than using applique.
(I took these photos before I had quilted the center squares of all the blocks.)
The backing is made up of five strips, each the full width of the fabric. I love the fabric with all the eyeglasses! I had it for a long time, and finally used it up on the back of this quilt.
