    Cool Not afraid of curved piecing anymore

    After years of being equally in awe and afraid of curved piecing, I decided to just dive right in and have a go. I'm especially drawn to New York Beauty blocks and have been using the 10 blocks found here: http://www.lenzula.de/en/pattern/fre...rk-beauty.html

    So far I've completed 2 each of blocks 0 & 6. While they're not perfect, I can see and feel the improvement in my technique. At the very least I'm more relaxed and no longer feel anxious when it comes to sewing all those curved pieces together

    ... oh this is also my first time paper-piecing and I've fallen in love with it

    Sometimes all people need is just a little push. Thank you for that! The block looks great
