Improv Curve Quilt

My improv pieced curve quilt is finished. In my bid to practice sewing pieced curves, I got out a bunch of 5" squares that I had left over from a previous project and took to them with my rotary cutter. It was a little scary at the beginning, but I'm so glad that I made it... and finished it. 



I learned a lot about curved piecing along the way - the right ways of doing it, and the wrong. After watching a bunch of YouTube videos, it seems that I sewed my curves together the 'wrong' way. 

I had the concave and convex curves in the opposite order when I made these blocks, but hey, they worked just fine. 






I finished off my quilt with a cute backing fabric print and spiral quilting. I even added a hanging sleeve to the back, but just need some dowel from the hardware store.



I'm counting this as my OMG finish for February 2020. Yay!!

Go you! It looks fantastic. I’m making small Drunkard Path blocks for RSC. They are challenging, but, as you say, a good learning curve (pardon the pun).

What a fun quilt! Did you find you were trying more daring cuts as you went along? I really love the bold color palette.
