    Here's a couple of pics of a wall hanging that I'm working on. If you've seen some of my previous projects, you know that this is really quite a departure for me from the traditional things I've done. It's done in batiks and is based on a quilt in the book "Strips 'n Curves" by Louisa L. Smith. When finished, it will measure about 50" x 42". This has been a LOT of fun working on and I'm enjoying the "artsy" aspect of it. I used to paint years ago, so this is a lot like using fabrics to paint. I still need to add the borders and will then start quilting it. I've decided that I really like piecing curves. :)

    I love it! How do you plan to quilt it? I've been gettting the itch to do curves too. Got to finish up Christmas presents before I can do another one for me.

    Did you use some of the Connecting Threads Batiks in this? If so, how do they compare with the other brands?

    Eddie that is awesome. That is certainly a challenge. I am thinking I have that book and I did do some blocks from that book. You do beautiful work!

    That's gorgeous. I have to admit, I've done a lot of curved piecing and I can't say I enjoy it much.

    I don't know how all of you choose your colors. Something like this and I am intimidated just looking at it.
    Unbelievable what can be done with fabric!!!
