    While waiting on my SIL to tell me what colors she wants, my BIL said he and his wife would like black & gold.

    Here's what I will do for them. I found some gorgeous fabric at the quilt shop for it today. I'll go get it tomorrow.


    Well, I got one block done so far :lol: . The gold is actually a little darker than in this pic.

    Oh, Drunkard's Path--I have not made that block yet (but it is next on my URR quilt). That will be stunning in those colors.

    Love the color and the pattern. So, sewing curves isn't that scary?

    maggiebooboo, 1st I put on my don't get aggervated hat, then I cut my curves.

    :lol: No, really what I did was cut a stencil from stencil plastic, trace it onto the fabric or in my case, I just used my rotary cutter.

    I snipped the gold piece about every 3/8 inch and about 1/8 inch inward, then placed the pieces like this, then pinned it in 5 places and sewed it.

    And they really lay flat? That is all there is to it? I would think they would pucker. I will have to do some experements.

    By the way, I love the brown and gold fabrics that you picked out. It will turn out very pretty.
