    OK, so I did a small Drunkardís Path, which turned out nice and am wondering which of the curved pieces to plan next. True, Iíve three tops Iím quilting (not a word ladies, not a word), and one more top to get done before summer, but I want to start planning now.

    The double wedding ring still looks hard to me, so does the Giant Dahlia, I was thinking of a simpler New York Beauty though am unsure.

    I'll be hand piecing the curves till I get a better machine. What if any of the curved patterns do you think would be good for a novice needing practice?

    How about some apple cores?
    http://www.quilterscache.com/A/ApplecoreBlock.html

    I think doing the piecing by hand would be simple. It's a pattern you can do scrappy, or with variations on a color, bands of color, and more! The undulations of the cores make an interesting effect. The one at quilters cache is a little rounded, but they look good with more clamshelled edges too.

    Thanks, will have to try in the morning, Quilter's Cache seems to be going through troubles tonight and I couldn't access either the mainpage or the link. Ah well, something for tomorrow! :D

    I'm not the one who wants to sew curves.

    I have five projects going right now. All very intricate, and very straight.

    Let's see your curves.

    Well, I did post this, which was my first success with curves (the piece I was talking about in the initial post Tim, it's about mid-page):
