It is difficult to do circles without working with curves....I actually enjoy curves.
Working with curves makes me nervous in the beginning and then as it comes together I breathe a sigh of relief and smile....kind of like riding a roller coaster!
I have found the big trick with curves is using lots of pins....
Find the center of your two pieces and pin the centers. Match the both ends and pin...then pin, pin, pin in between!!!
I have found that it is easier to stitch curves with the concave piece on top and the convex piece on the bottom....
Shorten your stitch length and just go slow....somehow it all works out just fine...
So one block of the Eloise Quilt is finished....I haven't planned the quilt out...it is just evolving
I guess by not committing my ideas to paper....I am not locked in...I can change my mind. How do you work out quilts? Do you work it out on paper or just go with the vision in your head?
My vision is telling me this block will need to have a GREEN center! Yum!
Hope you are having a great Monday!
