Summer Breeze II
Sentimental Studios
by Moda

The pattern is Blackbird Pie by Kookaburra Cottage 

now I can add 'curves' to my sewing portfolio!!!

pattern and fabric from Quilters Angel 

this is a shop sample

so pretty...


This month some Block swap member swapped patterns too

This is the fun one I received from Tanya
you can see hers HERE

I've learnt a bit of curves so maybe it's time for foundation paper piecing  

Thanks so much for the pattern Tanya - I love bugs!  and the fabrics to give me a kick start

Righto..... Gotta Go.... challenges to conquer

Love blue and yellow together! Yes, do have a go at foundation piecing- no curves required!

Love the fabrics! I've only ever made ONE curved pieced block - I used my CurveMaster Foot for the first time and loved it. Did you use a special foot?

Is it getting cooler out there? I can't wait to visit with my family in Oakey once the cool weather sets in - just love it up there in winter!

Happy Sewing!

Gorgeous fabrics and pattern. Looking really good.
Over by the Pond looks a fun pattern. You will master foundation paper piecing. Once you start it is not difficult, and great for doing points

Maria said...

Blue and yellow also look fabulous together.Great quilt top. I have never done curves. Have done foundation peicing and don't like it. Love the frog pattern so have fun.

Sue said...

That is awesome! You did a marvellous job and the colourway is gorgeous. I love foundation paper piecing. It is my favourite way to piece a block/quilt. I like the accuracy and crispness it gives to the points on blocks.

Very impressive work with the drunkard's path blocks. Those curves look pretty good!! Lovely fabric and pattern.
What are your plans for quilting this beauty?

Quilt Kitty said...

Beautiful quilts and wonderful piecing. I need to practice curves too, I want to make an apple core runner.


Janet said...

Gorgeous quilt! And the pattern you received is so cute. I passed on that swap, after seeing your pattern I'm regretting that decision!

Miss Hillbilly said...

I used to have that pattern. You'll do fine!

Sue said...

Yummy, gorgeous, delicious! How clever are you? Did you use a curvemaster foot or just wing it?

Allie said...

Oh gorgeous Fiona, you did a lovely job on that - see, curves aren't so hard! Love the fabrics you picked. And that new pattern is darling, I can't wait to see that one done - sweet!

Joy McD said...

I love Summer Breeze... I actually started a few quilts with it... oh dear, started but not finished, why is that such a familiar phrase???!!!
You have done a great job with the curves! Gorgeous quilt :)
