I have been dabbling in alternate quilting styles for awhile and wanted to have a demo on curved piecing.
So I said at the start of class which is supposed to be machine applique " I want to learn curved piecing" I even brought a few small scraps. HA!
Was quickly dispatched to the shelves for 1/2 meter pieces of 6 fabrics including one blackish.
How to demo followed and here are the results.
By the conclusion of class I had worked from the top through the strip below the grey & black line.
I was very pleased. My home work included a thin section with a bit of zingy red. DONE
A section of longer strips. DONE
Up to the next decision : What order to place the solid blocks of colour in for the bottom?
Looking at the brown back on the left as in the top I thought would provide continuity.
Well maybe it is a repetition of colour BUT the grey in the centre is too solid and detracts some a feeling of movement
Back to the colour placement in the first photo. The grey shifts further to the right giving a more fluid line. Also two blocks of brown in the top right and to two blocks of brown on the bottom left leads the eye from top to bottom without being a strong diagonal.
All that said I wondered?????
What happens if I flip
for now I'm going to continue with the horizontal but vertical curves are on the horizon.
What's on your quilting horizon? A finish ? A new quilt? Some experimenting?
Whatever it is enjoy yourself. Terry
