    This is my very first quilt off my midarm machine. What a learning experience!!! I learned a lot and loved it. Still got a lot to learn, but am happy with my results for a first quilt.

    As I've said before here, I love PP, and Judy Niemeyer patterns are just wonderful. This is also my first curved piecing block. I did alot of reading prior to joining the two pieces, I used Roxanne's glue with the fine tip and glued my curve. OMG, what a difference, have tried curved piecing in the past with pinning and would always quit after just a few blocks, then I avoided it for a long time. I like to try to challenge myself every year and learn a new technique, curved piecing using glue was this years.
    To many quilts, not enough wine.

    I love your quilt. The color choices are bold and set the piecing off perfectly. I'm glad you conquered the curved piecing because we get to see a wonderful quilt.

    I am so in love with this quilt! It is fantastic!! I'm not a batik lover but doing something like this could persuade me differently. Wild and bright!! Love it! I love to PP, too, and just bought a Neimeyer pattern to try. Your quilting looks great, too!!

    Like any new skill, there is a learning curve for mid arm quilting machines. I have a Sit Down HQSS, which took a lot of practice before I really felt comfortable FMQ'ing with it and was happy with my results. I am now having fun doing ruler work.
    You did a great job ... pat yourself on the back!
    I, too, love paper piecing. your variation of NY Beauty block is very interesting. Love the Batik fabrics.
