    Cool Not afraid of curved piecing anymore

    After years of being equally in awe and afraid of curved piecing, I decided to just dive right in and have a go. I'm especially drawn to New York Beauty blocks and have been using the 10 blocks found here: http://www.lenzula.de/en/pattern/fre...rk-beauty.html

    So far I've completed 2 each of blocks 0 & 6. While they're not perfect, I can see and feel the improvement in my technique. At the very least I'm more relaxed and no longer feel anxious when it comes to sewing all those curved pieces together

    ... oh this is also my first time paper-piecing and I've fallen in love with it

    Sometimes all people need is just a little push. Thank you for that! The block looks great

    Thank you everyone! They really are easier than they look and a lot of fun. Of course choosing colours for each block is the hardest part LOL. I'm using scraps from years ago when I used to sew summer dresses for my dd.

    I'm so glad I pushed myself to try this - it's opened up a whole new world of quilts for me ... I'm eyeing a Judy Niemeyer pattern next

    Really great job. I love paper piecing, but still shy away from curved piecing...

    And you thought you weren't good enough. Well let me say " you are." This will be beautiful and "NO" it's doesn't have to be perfect, it just has to be finished. Love everything about it, the colors, the design, the skill. Can't wait to see the finished project.

    I have been "eyeing off" that web-site on and off for a few months now and seeing your gorgeous blocks has given me the push that I need.
