What are you most proud of? The layout... I purposely laid the pieces out to emphasize the light and dark. This way the circles are more pronounced.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be afraid to piece curves... they really aren't difficult at all. If you ever did any garment sewing you will be able to do this no problem!

Did you hand piece this? I love it, but have difficulty doing hand work with my arthritis

No this was all done by machine. A cinch, since the pieces were pre-cut. No hand work here! :)

Thank you, I just may have to tackle this one this coming winter!

Jackie, of all your quilts this is definitely one of my favorites. Just stunning. Love the colours and how effectively you've used the light and dark. I've never considered buying a kit before but you have me very tempted!

Thank you! Funny, I probably would have not purchased it either, but since it was given to me, it was very intriguing and I had to do it! Would totally make this again. In fact, I have one in progress that is all 30s repro fabrics. I say go for it!

I just bought the templates for this pattern...love it....hope mine comes out as nice as yours .....I'll probably start with a nice small one first and see how it goes

I know you will love it! It goes together pretty easily. I would love to see your project when it is all completed!!

I have sewn curves but find that I have more squaring to do than with straight lines...I'm hoping that's normal....the "Little Ruthy" project I posted was curved pinwheels...I love curves

Yes, I did notice your "Little Ruthy" project when I popped over and was impressed. My first thought was that you would not have much of a problem with this Winding Ways quilt. The best advice is slow and steady and you will be fine.
