Curves Class



I finished my first project for curves class.  These are "basic" curves, which scares me a bit, I know this isn't as good as it could have been.

But, I got loads of practice sewing curves. I did have the same issues some others did, where at the stem, it didn't catch the bottom layer.  But, I tacked it down and moved on, and you can't tell when the pillow's done!

I didn't read the instructions quite right, and I should have had another row.  I did add some quilting to the negative space to give it a little something, and of course it ended up a bit small.  I did an envelope closure, since I didn't want to fight with a zipper today.  I used a 14" pillow form, the 16 looked like it might actually split the seam.

But, it inspired me to update all the pillows in the living room.  So that just added a bit to my to-do list.

Congrats on finishing up the pillow! It looks great!
Looks like we are "neighbors" - well, sort of. It's nice to meet another fellow North Carolinian. What other curvy projects do you have planned?

Like the quilting, great touch. I have some sweet ric rac which I might add to mine, seeing I have used the pretty cape ann fabric.

It turned out great! I'm sorry to hear that the form was the wrong size. I hope that isn't causing everyone problems. I guess the forms at my store must be overly flimsy compared to what you were able to buy. Thanks for mentioning it so that I can keep that in mind!
