I signed up for a Curve Class!

I have been terrified of curves, as in will not even look at a project if I see curves.  I was excited when I saw that Rachel Hauser from Stitched in Color was going to be teaching a 5-week on-line course about curves.  If she offers this class again and your feelings for curves are like mine, take the class.

Here are just a few of the items that I have made so far.  

Clam shell pillow:  I had some extra Christmas charm squares so I made a Christmas pillow. 

Drunkard's Path potholder - the way she taught it was great.  Now I'm wanting to make a DP table runner.

On my to do list for this weekend is the lovely orange peel pillow. 

Orange Peel Project

Again, the class is great.  The class that I signed up for is the "premium" class.  We get video taped lectures on Monday, and a project a day for Tuesday - Thursday.  On Friday, Rachel goes over the next weeks projects so that we can get our supplies together.   Next week is Advanced Improv Curves!

In two weeks my final project is this lovely quilt.

Mini finished!

The Retro Flowers quilt designed from Christina at The Sometimes Crafter.  I ordered the pattern and I just need to pick out my fabric. 

Don't forget today is the first day of the Craftsy BOM Blog Tour, why don't you go see Kaye over at Miss Print and say hello and enter for a $25 USD gift certificate.

Happy Quilting!

  4. I'm taking that class too!! Not the premium, but I'm still taking it!

  5. Your curves are fantastic. The projects look really fun.
    I got the curved piecing foot at the last quilt show I went to and it helps, too.

  6. What fun! That Orange Peel quilt is going to be a beauty! Great job on your curves projects so far. They make me want to try it myself!

  7. wow! I am really impressed with your work if you started with the same feeling I have about curves!! Great projects!
