I have always loved curved 9 Patch Blocks and was thrilled when I found a Curved Piecing Tutorial from Connecting Threads with the templates for this block. I was going to have us make the whole block as shown on the tutorial, but it ended up being 13 inches instead of 12! Augh! Anyway...we are going to make the central part of the block and then add on borders.
templates (page 5).
4 pieces of fabric using template D (white),
4 with template B (orange)
4 with template C (yellow)
1 with template A ( yellow)
instructions on the tutorial and sew the central 9 patch together. Then add the curved outer pieces.
You Did It!
Our three weeks of curved blocks are done and I have learned that templates aren't that bad, a lot of steam can take care of a bit of waviness and curves aren't impossible. Not too shabby. :)
