I’m continuing to play with the hand dyes I had out from my previous project. I want to get more comfortable with sewing curves.
I thought I’d try cutting up my junk strips. I just layer two pieces and freehand cut a curve.
Then switch the top and bottom pieces.
I use a smaller than quarter inch seam allowance.
Things never come out even with this method, but that’s okay.
It remains to be seen what this will become. But it’s fun!
Have a great day!
Those are great hand dyed fabrics. And great looking curves.
My improv curves don’t come out even either. I don’t even worry about it anymore, since I often slash the curved piece and add a strip or something, so I eventually just square it up. Will be fun to see where you go with this.
I Katy! I’ve always been meaning to make some string blocks and then cut them apart for a Drunkard’s Path quilt top. All scrappy – it would be so fun and cool. This is a fabulous use of your hand dyed fabrics! Can’t wait to see where these end up. ~smile~ Roseanne
I think maybe they didn’t come out even, because you switched the blue. Possible?
