Holding my breath on the pieces

     I have been for months making made fabric from scraps to cut up in spoke shape for the flowering snowball quilt. I had made about four trial blocks and decided to go ahead and cut all the spokes for all 56 blocks - 4 in each- (finish under 10" in size). Now that I have the investment of time in it, I sewed up more blocks and put them up to see if it was going to be chaos or fun. I stepped back, snapped a photo and decided I like it. Good thing. 
     There is something so satisfying to me about sewing curved blocks. I don't use any pins except the two when I sew the black center piece to the two semicircle  parts. Lots of fun!
Pieces and more pieces
