Eek, curved piecing
Oh my goodness putting this center together was certainly out of my comfort zone! I've never really wanted to make a Double Wedding Ring quilt and didn't quite understand how they went together so putting these together was quite the challenge. I worked in some frustration yesterday but things seemed a bit better today after looking at a few tutorials online. But then it wasn't flat. I followed the instructions and measured the center for the border measurement but man there sure was a lot of easing to make those last borders fit. Well, things seem a bit flatter now. If I didn't love how this looks in my kitchen I think I would give up but at least the next part is applique and that I know how to do! Despite my complaining I am enjoying this one and learning lots of new skills. Who knew that the foundation piecing would be the easy part!!!!
