Since I quilt mostly with my walking foot, I usually quilt mostly with straight lines, but I have experimented with some curves. I wanted to try a curving design on this quilt to soften up all the squares a bit. That meant a visit to my favorite walking foot quilting resource, 31 Days of Walking Foot Quilting, by Petit Design Co. I decided to try a continuous curve design which ends up looking like circles, but is done by stitching a curve along each seam line, first to the right, then to the left.
At first, I wasn't sure how I would mark my curves, but then decided to buy myself a Clover Hera marker, and give it a try. And it worked pretty well! My very scientific method involved tracing around a bowl from the kitchen cupboard which turned out to be the right size for my pieces, and then stitching along those creases. While I couldn't see the creases perfectly on every piece of fabric, I was able to follow the pattern, and I know I will use it again!
I bound the wall-hanging in the same gray that I used for this table runner earlier because I also included some squares of that fabric in my plus blocks.
And here it is, hanging in our living room!
Happy Sunday, everyone! I'm linking up with my favorite Sunday inspiration, Oh Scrap! at Quilting is More Fun than Housework.
