Fancy Curves

Quilt #106
Fancy Curves

Fancy Curves was a class sample in curved piecing, embellishing by hand and machine as well as a fused and machine stitched binding.

There is curved piecing on the background as well as in squares.

curved piecing

The background was quilted adding some decorative machine stitching as well as a couple of rows of hand whipped running stitches. The squares were embellished with french knots , fused and stitched onto the background with a blanket stitch.

The binding is fused, cut with a curved rotary blade and topstitched using a decorative machine stitch.

The beading was added after all the machine stitching was completed.
