Hello everyone, Justine here with my round up of month 9!
Yikes is all I can say, those are some tight curves and they have been a steep learning curve for me!
I initially tried to machine piece them and failed miserably! My first block is a combo of hand and machine piecing and though I’ve not unpicked it, it’s not very good!
I decided from here on in to hand sew this block fully. Here’s how I used the templates to get the lovely curves.
Since this post I now add all the sewing lines onto my fabric as I’m cutting them out, it’s just easier and faster. I was going to part machine and part hand sew at this point still but in all honestly I have found it quicker to hand sew it!
Don’t forget you need to cut that middle curve piece with the bottom curve on the bias, otherwise it won’t all fit together properly, it definitely needs the stretch!
