    Circles, circles, circles!

    This is my Winding Ways quilt top using 11" block templates from Marti Michell. It had been many years since I've sewn curved seams but boy oh boy did I ever get practice with this one! Still have to figure out borders and backing but the big part is done! I'm going to do another one using Flynn's 8 X 10" rectangular block template next.

    WOW Well done for your hard work. It looks grand.
    Home is where the heart is, and a few scrappy quilts.

    That pattern has always fascinated me!
    But I've been afraid to tackle it.
    Not because of the curved seams = because of the center seam intersections.

    Marti Michell has great instructions re that center seam! The way she explains it, they lay flat as you please!
