    Hellebores in the Snow

    This is my first attempt at curved piecing. I think there was smoke coming from the seam ripper, but it turned out pretty good. Now to get it quilted.

    Beautiful. Would like to try one like it. Does anyone know how long it takes for a broken wrist to heal? I can' do any sewing now. I had surgery a week and a half ago.

    Exquisite! I love it. Is Hellebores in the snow the name of the pattern or the name you gave the quilt? I love a pattern that makes your eye focus on two different focal points like yours does. For your first attempt at curved piecing I'd say you are expert now and no curves will scare you away! Next up, NYBeauty!

    Hellebores in the Snow is the name I gave my quilt. The pattern name is Winner's Bouquet by Atkinson Designs.
