What are you most proud of? Looks pretty good! I am running out of large pieces of my fat quarters so had to kind of improvise. What I'm not so proud of is my senior moment when cutting the curved pieces of the aqua/white fabric - kind of forgot it's directional! And no more fabric - had to piece these four curves as it was. So I'm going with the idea that it was intentional & adds interest to the block! LOL!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Cut your curves carefully & watch the sewing the curves video at sewkindofwonderful.com - no pins!!

Darns, another beautiful block! Can't wait to see the whole quilt.

Thank you! I'm basically done with the quilt blocks - can't decide what to do about the border - I'm thinking the HSTs in the pattern will be too much pattern for me. So I'm going to let it be for a while until I figure out what I want.

Thanks, Pam! The Quick Curve ruler is too much fun. And how lucky was I that the blocks in her Curve It Up QAL were exactly the size I need for this subsitute block. Didn't have to do any recalculations! Yea!

Wow! This is fabulous! I love curves. The piecing in the center is gorgeous!

Thanks, 4Bird! I'm working on another of her quilts (Urban Abacus) - have 4 of the nine rows done - love the way it's looking.

Love your block...where did you get the alternate pattern?

Thank you, SuperNana! I used the nine patch block from sewkindofwonderful.com Curve It Up QAL. I had a hard time deciding which block to do - they're all great!
