Round Robin Round 3

on January 17, 2013

So I did two rounds in my 1st post.  My goal is to write a post with each round.  Below is a pic of the top I received from my pass off buddy, Debbie.  Aren’t her fans awesome?!

So the tip from bee members…needs curves…WHAT, the fans aren’t curvy enough?  At first, I wanted to do a twisted ribbon, but that proved to be way too much work for me.  So I came up with this curvy 4 patch.

Take 2 squares from 2 different fabrics and stack Right sides up. Then with rotary cutter start at least 1/2″ from edge and cut a gentle curve up towards the right side at least 1/2″ in from right side.  Put top fabric of one cut on bottom of stack.

Now you will stitch the two fabrics together.  Just line up the edge and then slowly stitch a 1/4″ seam.  Stop and pivot the fabric as needed to keep the 1/4″ seam.

Then you will stack these pink against brown.  Do one more gentle curve cut.  Sew together and you have a curvy 4 patch!

Pretty cute, eh?  I learned this technique in a quilt guild class I took a few years ago.

So now, it’s time to play.
