I can’t seem to get away from piecing curves….this time all on the machine. I had a big pile of fat quarters in reproduction 30’s and I have been thinking for a while that I need to decide what to do with them
I have been really drawn to any of the patterns that have curves. The suspension Bridge pattern is what I decided on
as always the pattern looks different when the blocks are joined together
and another option is to add sashing
This one really appeals to me….it might just be the one I need to do….but it might look too much like this one I recently finished?
I will give it some thought but for now here is the first block
it is a bog block….18″ so I wont have to make a ton of them…and you can see that I need to get a little better at machine sewing so I don’t have puckers and cut off points, but honestly they don’t bother me that much. Remember this is supposed to be fun! If I try to be too perfect all the fun is taken out of it.
I am doing a variation on the pattern…the points are not equilateral triangles like the original suspension bridge …but they are a lot easier to make! There is a trick to it and I will post about that next time.
