My "Learning Curve"

Whenever I spend time in quilting circles I usually always hear at least one person express their fear of curved piecing. I admit, I was fearful too. Until I found a pattern that was done up into such a beautiful quilt I HAD to give it a try. This is the result...

The pattern is called "Learning Curve" and was found in the August 2006 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting. It is written for a 48 1/2" square quilt but I wanted a baby quilt so changed a couple things. I had a lot of fun with it and have to say that the curves really weren't THAT bad. Especially for a small quilt like this.

 As usual, my long arm quilter made up for anything lacking due to my inexperience. I love her for that!
Yes, I know. It's very... well... PINK. But after having three boys, I think I've earned the right to make it as pink as possible for my niece's baby girl. Hope she loves it! Don't the blocks below look a little bit like old fashioned baby carriages. Okay, maybe I went too far that time!
                                          The curly hearts look so nice quilted in there.
 Blessings to you~
