I’m in a group that meets once a month to try new techniques or make small projects that are always on the “someday” list. One month we tried curved piecing.
I finished my sample so that I could use it this Sunday to practice different machine appliqué techniques.
Curved piecing isn’t really that hard. I didn’t fall in love with it, but I can see myself using it in future projects.
I think the lightest pink is too light for the other fabrics. I was going to paint it to darken it up, but decided to wait to see what it looks like with appliqué all over it. If I still don’t like it, I’ll cut it up and turn it into a charity top for the Children’s Hospital.
It’s way out of character for me to piece something and then cut it up to piece it into something else, but I can’t seem to let go of the idea. It sounds incredibly fun, and I can’t wait to have at it.
