Last week I went to the quilt shop and came home with a set of templates for 6 inch drunkard’s path blocks. I didn’t have a particular quilt in mind. I just wanted to try my hand at sewing curved seams, and this seemed as good a way to start as any.
On Thursday I pieced 3 blocks. Hmm. Two have a little pucker, and the third has edges that don’t line up. I didn’t take a close-up to show off the flaws! I’m close though, so I plan to practice.
Tomorrow I’ll start sewing again and hope I get the hang of the curves. I watched a few video tutorials online today so I have a few techniques to try. Though I had no particular quilt in mind when I bought the templates, I now have several design ideas floating in my brain. It would be nice to manage to bring at least one of them to life in fabric.
