Curved piecing workshop

     Our guild brought John Kubiniec to town on April 22nd for a curved piecing workshop. My friend, Elizabeth, and I are program co-chairs and are trying to bring instructors for workshops. This was our first one. Many of our guild members were scared of curved piecing and this workshop calmed them down and gave them confidence. John was a great instructor and full of so many ideas. His quilts were gorgeous.
     I made some blocks and now have to try and make a whole quilt, lap size, for a comfort quilt. I tried two arrangements. I like the center block one, but don't know how to carry it on to make it bigger without losing the flower center feeling. I tried graph paper, but can't see how to do it. Regardless, I need to make a lot more blocks.

Great job. Curved piecing is always a challenge for me. Have done it several times, just not my favorite. Yours looks great.

I did curved piecing once, using the Flip Flop block template. I didn't follow one of her patterns, and didn't have a clue what I was doing, but, the quilt wound up in her book, as a way to use the template without patterns. Cool. I'll try curved piecing again, one day.

Oh I do like this Linda. You're going to have a beautiful quilt when this is done.
