Curve It Up Challenge

I have decided that I need a bit of a mental break. I still want to sew, I just don’t want to have to fuss with math and design and all the jazz that comes with designing patterns. So for the next little bit here I am going to work on the Curve It Up Challenge that Sew Kind of Wonderful is hosting right now.

I picked out some American Made Brand solids that I bought from my LQS this summer and whipped up the first block today.  It is a curved version of a Churn Dash block. It measure 16.5″ x 16.5″ and I was able to do it in less than an hour.

    Love this block, love the colors, LOVE the size! I’ve kept resisting this ruler, but I might have to break down at the AQS show next week.

  6. Love this block – I made a 12 1/2″ one for my bee mates and Ring Around the Briar Rosies quilt was inspired by it. Good luck!

    Sometimes you just have to step back and let someone else take on the calculations and working out mantle, in order to preserve your sanity!
