    Batik Winding Ways

    Quilt Stats
    Pattern Name: Winding Ways, Accuquilt die
    Dimensions: 75" X 59"
    Fabric source/name: all batiks, various manufacturer's
    Pieced and quilting by machine, SITD

    My brother is using a spare bedroom as a TV room. It has a large window and he asked me to make a quilt to block the sun. I have already installed a sun block curtain in the window, which really does the job, but this quilt will hang over the window opening. I don't think I would attempt curved piecing without precision die cuts!

    What a beautiful quilt and a beautiful job of piecing. I shy away from curves but that secondary pattern sure makes perfect circles and is gorgeous in the colors you chose. He will love it.

    I adore winding ways and I love this! I haven't added it to my bucket list because the thought of cutting those pieces out just makes me cringe. But you solved that issue with accuquilt dies!

    Nicely done. I have never tried curve piecing. Looks like you did an excellent job making this quilt. Love the fabric you used.

    awesome quilt (or window covering)... wonderful fabric collection. I stay clear of curves but yours look great.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Great! I have that die too, but haven't tried it yet either....I watched a you tube from Quilting from the the Heartland, and although shar does not use a die, her sewing instructions are spot on...

    Beautiful quilt. I really like the color combination; it is rather subtle and yet makes a beautiful statement. I do think the curved piecing with batiks is more of a challenge that regular quilting cottons because the tighter weave is less forgiving when pressing down the seams after stitching.
