Joseph's Coat

Posted on Saturday, November 28, 2009 In:

I have done one block for the Joseph's Coat quilt-along. I like my fabrics, but not happy with my technique. I think maybe my tension is too much - it seems to be pulled too tight. It got better as I went along, hopefully my second will be better.

The Curve-meister

Posted on Sunday, November 08, 2009 In: ,
I bough a Curve Master foot at the Craft show. There is definitely a skill in using it. I have made LOTS of curved blocks for practice. I found that using a small stitch - about 1.4 - gave me the best results. This is a piece I put together. They weren't all perfect, but some were, & I think it looks ok :-)

I have also done one practice block of Kaffe's Pickle Dish quilt to see if I can use the curvemaster for these blocks. I'll scan it when it is complete.

I am taking part in the Don't Look Now blog quilt along with a Joseph's Coat quilt. I love this pattern and have ordered some fine cotton from The Thimblelady for my background. I think I am going to do it in greens and blues. I bought some Benartex "Day dreamer" fabrics the other day & think they will go well with some others that I have in my stash.
