I chose to work with my fat quarter stack of Innocent Crush by AMH.
For my background color, I chose Kona Peridot.
I'm planning to make a QUEEN-sized quilt, because I am crazy.
I realized as I was sewing my first curve that I may have bitten off more than I could chew.
I pinned the curve to death, started sewing, had to rip.
Second time, same thing.
Finally, I decided to check my seam sizes. It turns out that almost every seam was shorter than 1/4 inch.
Precision matters here, folks.
Apparently, I'm not a very precise sewer.
Luckily, I had only sewn a few ring sections together at this point, so I didn't have to completely start over.
Trust me: there was enough cussing without any additional ripping.
Here's my first completed square.
Would you believe me if I told you I sewed this with no pins?? I don't believe it myself, but it's true. It's not perfect, but I felt so thrilled when I finished. I watched nova's video for pinless curves and just went with it.
So, only fifteen more squares to go. Um, yeah.
