While I need to be sewing on the project with a deadline, I just needed some play time. Do you find yourself needing play time so that you can create for the pure fun of it? I do.
So I have made three blocks using a curvy, wavy joining technique.
If you are wondering how to do the wavy lines, I did a video in March of 2012 for the Quilts of Valor project. I will embed it here for your convenience.
Have you tried sewing curves freeform like this? If so do you like it or feel comfortable with it? It is a bit more work than straight seams, but it can add a lot more interest to your quilts.
If you have any questions about the method, be sure to ask. The only way we learn is by trying, asking questions and trying again. You can use scraps to play with this method which helps to free you from the voice in your head that says "I can't waste fabric" Remember, learning is not wasted.
Do you want to play? I did my play - now I need to work on my project for church.
