Linda’s Quilt

I finished this quilt a few weeks ago but am just getting around to posting about it.

I believe this was top was made using techniques from Judy Dales book about curved piecing. I have this book somewhere in my house but can’t seem to put my hands on it right now.

I was a little nervous to start this one. I really wanted to highlight the piecing so it needed custom work. Also, there was some extra fullness, especially in the large white area at the center of the quilt. I wish I’d taken a “before” picture. I was concerned about getting tucks smack dab in the center! But I took my time and it all “worked out” so to speak!

By the way, who ever came up with the phrase “it will quilt out” should be hunted down and made to prove it! MOST of the time IT WILL NOT QUILT OUT!! And then the piecer and the quilter will be very unhappy!

Doesn’t this remind you of a cobra? Not my intention! LOL!

This was pretty ambitious for me and I’m quite please with the result!
