One day, once upon a time...I saw a pattern for the curved pieced quilt above. I like curved piecing, it's much easier than most people think. Now, if there is one tool above all others that I depend on, it would be my rotary cutter and the acrylic templates I use. However, for this wallhanging, I had to draw templates onto plastic and draw each piece individually and cut them by hand. That is the reason why this is only 40" X 40" and is used to hide some of my fabric shelving. NOW FOR THE GOOD PART! I've been a fan of Wanda Hanson at http://www.exuberantcolor.blogspot.com/ for a while now and she has created some stunning quilts inspired by Louisa L. Smith at http://www.quiltescapes.com/. I have wanted to create another quilt using the similar curved design and noticed on Wanda's site that she had acrylic templates lying on her fabric ready to be cut. OMG...I want those!! So, I sent off a message to Wanda and she was sweet enough to refer me to Quilt Escapes. Hence, the title of this blog "Follow Friendships". Quilters are just the best. If you ever need help or advice they always come through for you. My thanks to Wanda.
