The college class has been working on sewing curved seams. Above is a project from the Quilt Pattern, Dreamweaver by Michelle McKillop. This has been so much fun and a lot easier than they thought was possible. The drunkards path is another great block to make such creative designs and use up scraps.
When tackling a new technique think positive thoughts and know you can accomplish it. So many times we sabotage ourselves out of fear of failure. It is true that sometimes the first try at something may not turn out like you hoped but if you keep at it you will learn and grow your skills.
Keep dreaming - sewing - creating - growing!
An artists job is to make it - not judge it.
