I took a class on Tuesday from Jan Soules on Bias Covered Piecing with Curves.  Such a fun day!  This is my pattern for one of the blocks.  We actually used an eighteen inch square of freezer paper and drew freehand circles on it.  Then we folded it into quarters and cut out 4 nine inch blocks.  

I used Cosmos by Dan Bennett for Rowan.Westminster Fibers.  I had purchased the entire line of fat quarters.  The fabric has lots of colors and combinations that fit well with the quilt Jan was teaching.  I zigzagged the pieces together to hold them down.

The pieces once cut out of my fabric were put on a ten inch square of Pellon True Grid #810 or #820 nonwoven stabilizer.

Then we placed bias strips down on top of the zigzag stitching to cover them and sewed straight stitching with variegated rayon thread to finish off the blocks.  Eventually I will join the blocks together to make a quilt, table runner, or table mat.  So anxious to work on more of these, but it is off to work for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.  
At least this project is in progress, so I am linking up with


  1. Pretty fabrics. It looks very work intensive.

  3. Thanks for the brief explanation of this technique, your block is so snazzy!
