Yesterday, I go a bunch of curves sewn on the Bali Bed Runner. I hope you all like the progress photos? Some of you have told me they are very helpful to all who are making this pattern or the Bali Wedding Star Quilt. Today, I will be working on more curves. Well, it could be that this whole quilt has curves in it...
If you are afraid of piecing a curve, watch the video tutorial on curves that I did by clicking here. This is the technique I am using on this quilt. Quick and easy!
These are the three units that I had to join together today, the CDS (center dark star), Unit A (arcs), and Unit M (melons). The order in which they are joined are the CDS gets pieced to the Unit A first, then once that is done...
... as in the above photo, you will piece them to the Unit M. Once these are done you have completed 32 of these units. 16 of them have the "dark" melon units and 16 of them have the "medium" melon units. In my case the "dark" is a darker purple and the "medium" is slightly lighter than the "dark".
Here are the units all pieced together and ready to roll. Oh and by the way, when you press these, both seams are pressed towards the Unit A arc.
Onto more curves today! So stay tuned for the progress.
Here is my first version of the bed runner, totally different color scheme, that I LOVE!
Oh wait.... how did this photo get in here?? Hmmm.... must have been a Priority mailing today. You never know what will be in the box.

Until Next Time...
