Design Wall Monday, February 16, 2015

Sunday I spent a long sewing day sewing curves.  While the washer and dryer were humming along the wedges were placed on the outside ring of the Bella Bella project.  I did as suggested in the workshop and left the outer edge of the ring not trimmed to 1/4" but found that it didn't give me that much leverage when sewing the two together.  I'll try it again for the inner ring...we shall see.  Need that protractor to measure out the center circle still.  6 3/16 is the circle I will need.
Kurry is coming along well too.  I have eight of the 20 blocks with melons in place.  I started in the lower left corner as you may see.  Until I get the layout placed for the setting square correctly the whole project looks a bit wrong.  I have lots more curve piecing ahead this week.

Wishing you a good week.  See more wonderful projects with your cup of coffee this morning through the links at Patchwork Times.

Kurry is beautiful! And the circles...I think I'm going to like that one too! I don't have a protractor, but I have a compass that I might be able to use to make a template. You'll figure it out!! I have great faith you can do it!

Beautiful projects - you are really making the best of your batiks!

Try Google for downloads of circles, if that fails, do you have a senior college nearby, or a friend with someone that age studying maths? Maybe a compass would work better, unless you need the points round the edge for marking. Hope this helps, longing to see more as this quilt nears the finish point.

Kudos to you--doing curves right and left!
I love the way Kurry is coming together, but while it is in assembly stage I believe that if I stood in front of your design wall for too long and stared, I might tip over! *LOL*
