    I just couldn't wait to do a Winding Ways mini! Don't you love the look but don't want to do curved piecing? Well, I did it through fused applique and the tut for this mini will probably be posted tomorrow. Am almost done with it for those who are interested in learning how I did it. I want to show in the tut how to select your fabrics for best results as well as how I made the pattern and put it together. Everyone's will look different because we all have different fabrics! Look for my next tut on tessellated designs!! I really can't wait to get going on that tut! Well, hope you enjoy my mini! It sure was lots of fun fussy cutting all the best parts out of the florals and using lots of colors! Thank you for looking and enjoying my work! :-D

    here I tried a different border, but settled on the darker one that brings out the colors better

    I totally agree with you that the darker border is best. Nice job.

    Love the winding ways pattern and originally tried to do it the old fashioned way until I saw the fusible way in a magazine. Wow, so much easier and the end result still great. Looking forward to the tutorial, I know a lot of people here will try this technique for the winding ways.

    Love this mini, definitely the darker border is the best. Can't wait for your tut on how to do the fuse applique.

    Yes, everyone, I will be posting that tut for you tomorrow as I'm still working on it tonight. I think it will be a really lengthy one as I'm tired of rushing through my tuts and I want to be thorough and really help you to see how to do this especially the fabric part that I want to linger on as it's the most fun part of a quilt and sometimes the hardest when you're not sure what goes together! Most of the pics have been taken and I'm writing it up now. I love the secondary colors emerging and the more blocks you get together, the more you see those background pieces working overtime shining through! Once you know how to get these fabrics working together for you, then it produces a beautiful quilt!! I thought I would have to do a minimum of at least 16 blocks to see the interplay exchange, but you could see it with 9 blocks so that's where I stopped.

    Thank you, magpie, and everyone for your very nice compliments!! I'm looking forward to tomorrow's posting!! :D :wink:

    It's a 6-inch block. I wanted the wedges big enough so I determined 3" would do it. Didn't want anything any smaller or anything any bigger. It came together really fast! Amazing!! Thank you so much, Sherryl, and I know others who would love to make one too just like you without the old way of doing it! There's not really time in today's fast lane for archaic methods! Thank you for your sweet kindness!

    :D :D ;) ;)

    I have been wanting to do the Winding Ways quilt but couldn't image how a scrappy one would look. Thank you so much for sharing the picture of your scrappy one. I also like the idea of doing it as a mini. It's great. :thumbup:
