    I did the arcs in each piece. I'm always scared to try something new because I don't want to ruin a quilt top. BUT a quilter can't meander forever. :lol:

    I really like it. Once I get it bound and washed, I'll post a finished picture.

    It is 6 blocks long. This is just half.

    Wow, that looks fantastic! :thumbup: I may have to borrow that idea. I'm just getting into FMQ and would like to do something other than stippling.
