Craftsy Block of the Month 2012 »
Type of item: Home Decor
Fabric from the Makower Sew Patchwork range and the background fabirc is makower spectrum range
What was your inspiration?
Always wanted to do patchwork and quilting and noticed this course mentioned on a forum. It's exactly what I was after and being a monthly thing there is no pressure on trying to get it done
What are you most proud of?
Stitching curved seams and not getting a crease or fold included in the seam. The square also came out the right size - horah!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Pin as per the instructions and sew really slow. Keep adjusting the gathers of the fabric whilst sewing the seams so you don't get creases in your fabric. It's a little time consuming but so worth it when you finally press the little squares to reveal a perfectly made curved piece.
