"Can you believe it's already August?"
I almost cried when I re-read Zonnah's card and realized that it's almost November. Yikes! I was terrified to do these curves since I've never done them before so I wouldn't let myself finish any other bee blocks until I completed this one. I used a pattern from Purl Bee for Curved Seam Pillows , and shrunk the pdf by half. It worked out pretty well and the instructions on the site were a great intro to curved seams. My picture definitely suffered from being in the bright sun - the shadows are making those puckers look worse than they actually are (although there's no denying that they exist). Learning some new skills, such as curved seams, was why I joined some quilting bees, so thanks, Zonnah, for the challenge - and enjoy! ~Gretchen
