Nine Stars - some EPP with curves.

I've been working on a small piece made from shot cotton.  The above pic is from the back against the light, so you can see all the gaps I've left!  Each block is 6 inches square.


 Oakshott did an offer for their sample packs and I got my hands on the Lakes pack - lovely blues with a bit of green and purple.  It was fun squeezing the pieces out of a five inch square.  I used every scrap.  The white and brown pieces were from stash.


I used my usual method of drawing on a piece of Incompetech graph paper - this one is on Polar graph paper.  I found the best way to get round the complex curves was to cut the seam allowance really fine and let it stretch. Easy with a closely woven fabric.

I wish you could see the colours.  About to finish it off with some hand quilting.


In haste so I can link up with Life Under Quilts -and WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.
