I've joined in the Totally Groovy QAL hosted by Alyssa of Pile O' Fabric. The pattern which we're using is from Emma of Carolina Patchwork named Groove Quilt. I've not done all solids quilt before neither have I done curve piecing, thus I've participated in the quilt along to learn a few techniques for sewing curves.
The pattern I planned to follow is for a twin size quilt but I've reduced the width of the quilt from 81" to 72" and the length from 99" to 81" instead. My version of the Groove quilt will have a 72" x 81" finish without changing much to the original quilt pattern.
I chose Kona Cotton for the solids :
|From Top : Burgundy, Taupe, Deep Rose, Peapod and Champagne|
These fabrics were cut two weeks ago.
And I've started with piecing the curves first. I can't say I did extremely well, but I'm glad they look decent enough! Hopefully I'll get better with practice!
Then I moved on to piecing the strips.
And I got slightly more than half of the quilt top done last week. This piece measures 41" x 81.5" and I have another section to join at the bottom.
I'm really pleased with how this is turning out and I'm hoping there will be much more progress on this one next week!
Hope you'll have a lovely and productive week! =)
