Adding another dimension

I know that I have a lot more curved piecing to do before I complete this quilt top but I could not resist completing just one of the blocks to see what it would look like.

Doing this has added another dimension with the fuschia pink in the sashings.

One of the secrets of success in making this block is the oversizing of the pieces during construction.

The oversizing allows you to cut back to the exact size required and gives a much better result in the final piecing.

I am impressed with the pattern and look forward to sharing more of the completed blocks even if it may be a day or two before I can report on more progress.
