Default Blue Onion

I have been looking for a curved pattern quilt and found it with Karla Alexander's Blue Onion. I was saving up fat quarters for a year and had such fun with making this.
What sold me on her template was her youtube; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oiLxqJ4m4lQ i watched it multiple times and then finally attempted myself. Well the pieces went together so easily.
Can't wait to start another
Oh - and the best part - is there is only the one seam at each corner - no more matching curved seams!!

I love this. Is there another video showing how it’s sewn together?
(Anyone else cringe as she was cutting? That rotary cuter looked awfully close to her fingers!)
