The September blocks for Craftsy Block of the Month were all about curved piecing. I really enjoyed putting these blocks together, but it was not without its challenges.
Sewing a curved seam is all about precision and easing your two fabric pieces into each other. I cut a couple extra and luckily worked the kinks of the process which involved some finger pressing of the two fabrics to help with the easing and strategic pinning. I also pulled out my dress makers pins though I mostly use extra fine pins anyways which helps if I get carried away and don't remove them as I am sewing.
The cooling thing about quilting blocks is since everything is in miniature they are a good place to practice skills you can use on garments. I sort of struggled in the past with curved seams on dresses. I am looking forward to some pretty awesome curved seams in the future!
Only one month of blocks left to go and then I can show off my quilt top! It is exciting to have learned so many skills and come so far over the past year.
