I’m taking my unfinished apple-core quilt out for it’s annual airing, inspired this time by the purchase of a #curvemaster presser foot and a strong desire to do a NY Beauty quilt someday. I recommend going to the website, studying their short tutorial and FAQs, and then practicing for awhile. Eventually, and with a little patience, this #specialtyfoot does work as easily as it appears to at the quilt shows! #onlinetutorialsrock #applecorequilt #finishin2018 #curvedpiecing

Just wrapped up my advanced quilting coarse with some of the best folks around! We spent 6 weeks exploring chenille, sashiko, & curved piecing. Feeling so bitter sweet that this class came to an end. 😭✨💕 @butcherssewshop

I've kept this quilt a secret, but it's time to unveil it! I've been a bit obsessed with sunrises and sunsets. I designed this quilt at the same time as my #sun#alutationsquilt . After that half square triangle version, I thought it would be fun to do a curved version. Meet my Kona Sunset quilt! ..... Will you be at QuiltCon? If so, you can see it in person at the Paintbrush Studios booth. Be sure to stop by and take a selfie with it and enter for a chance to win a fat quarter bundle of some of the fabrics I used along with one of my patterns. All the entry details will be in the booth. ..... Sun Salutations is made with @pbstudiofabrics solids, pieced and quilted with @aurifilthread and binding is warm and natural by @thewarmco .... #modernquilt #qui#quilt #curvedpiecing #quilting #quiltsofinstagram #qui#quiltersofinstagram #qui#quiltcon #sewsolid #colorlove #ilovesewing # igquiltfest #quilt #modernmakers #quiltylove #quilter #modernsewing #quiltcon #aurifil #aurifilthread #aurifilartisan #walkingfootquilting #fabriclove #domesticmachinequilting #showyourwork #creativehappylife #quiltlife #konasunsetquilt #wholecirclestudio #secretsewing

Working on another #sunsquarequilt but with a twist. I’ll share my progression this week as I sew. Started with the free @konacotton white charm pack from @fatquartershop back on Black Friday. It only took a half an hour to cut the #drunkardspath blocks. It took way longer to decide colors since I decided to mix two #konacotton charm packs together.

So which border #qui#quiltfinstagram? Grey patterned linen or sandy with the little meeces on? I'm planning on a dark mottled green border between the centre and the main border. #sewing #patchwork #quilting #quilt #curvedpiecing #applecore

Latest student work from my MidCentury Modern Curves Workshop. Susan made 4 placemats. She said this workshop really helped her get past her struggle to do improvisational piecing!

Hey guys! I’m going to be demoing the clammy ruler at the store this weekend. If you love the look of curved piecing but are hesitant to try it, please feel free to stop by and see how this ruler works; it really makes curved edges a breeze!

I was feeling a little creative tonight and wanted to sew but not cut anything new out so I pulled out this work in progress! I started on this quilt last April and was so excited to tackle curved piecing for the first time! It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be and I had all of the quilt sewn into sections pretty quickly. Then for some reason I laid it down and never finished it. So tonight I pulled it out and sewed the sections together, now all that's left are the borders! I'm hoping to finish the quilt and donate it to a benefit auction next month. #curvedpiecing #springquilt #qswipchallenge #thegreatufopurgeof2018

I hope that curved piecing is one of those things that get easier and more enjoyable the more you do it.

One more old WIP that I’m finishing this month. I have 27 blocks done but I think I’ll just use 25, make the quilt 5x5 and call it good! The background print is one of my all time favorites and I’ve used it on many, many projects. It’s Color Weave from @pbtextiles and I believe this color is silver - but the gray is also great as a background. . . . . #finishallthequilts #worksinprogress #curvedpiecing #thegreatufopurgeof2018

Got to work last week on these double drunkards path blocks from a December workshop as well as make good progress on some very old projects 👏 Happy with the way this is heading, and getting more used to curved piecing (sorry @pappersaxsten - pins are involved 🙂) Need to find a way to blend in the two shades of purple in the second row - not enough of the lighter shade in my stash and could not find exact match - only the darker shade will be in the third row. Thinking also about adding strips of the blue print and the circles print between the rows to space them 🤔 Decisions, decisions........ any suggestions? . . . . #curvedpiecing #doubledrunkardspath #ddptemplates #twoshadesofpurple #quilt #quilts #handmade #handmadequilt #modernquilts

After a long gloomy stretch around here, I started this magical little block on Friday afternoon and we have had sunshine every day since which just makes my heart happy. ☀️💛☀️Plus, the first signs of spring are emerging in my yard... snowdrops and grape hyacinths! 💕🌸💕My little sunshine is pretty wonky, but it was my first time piecing curves so I'm okay with it. This little #fpp pattern is by Kristina @centerstreetquilts and she even has a super helpful curved piecing tutorial on her blog if you want to try curves out yourself! Now... what to make with this?

Mit den wunderschönen Stoffen von @ursels_quiltcabin wusste ich lange Zeit nichts anzufangen... Ich wollte mich aber schon immer mal an einen #drunkardspath wagen :) mir gefällt die Technik und das #curvedpiecing recht gut, das nächste Mal muss aber ein ruhigerer Stoff her. Bin aber immer noch verliebt in die Stoffe ;) #nähenmachtglücklich #kreativephase #patchwork #nähenistwiezaubernkönnen #selfmade #handmade

Home now after a lovely weekend sewing with the ladies of the #nipatchworkguild I brought this with me mostly cut out and had pieced a few quadrants but did the rest at the retreat 🕺💃 Really happy with how it's turned out. It might need a narrow border but need to decide on which shade of blue to use. At the moment I'm swaying towards a dark navy but don't have any in my stash so a trip to the fabric shop next weekend might need to happen. This was made with someone in mind and the 4 continuous colour circles together in the lower half aren't an accident 😀 Made using @pappersaxsten #doubledrunkardspath templates #curvedpiecing #drunkardspathquilt #drunkardspathblock #bluequilt #northernirelandpatchworkguild #nipg

Sunday morning scrappy, sunshiny goodness.☀️We haven't had much of it around here lately, so I decided to make my own. Those are my first ever pieced curves up there. So far, so good!

Joining Lucy @charmaboutyou for #saturdaynightcraftalong I've been piecing curves most of the day which was only interrupted for food (which I didn't have to make or clear up after 😁) and a nice bracing walk along the promenade. I've used my @pappersaxsten #doubledrunkardspath templates for these and have pieced 20 blocks today and might have a finished quilt top to share tomorrow 😀 so yaaaaay 💃🕺👯 #curvedpiecing
