“Embrace Your Curves” — a glorified nine patch design by Becky Cogan for Need’l Love — is featured in the June 2011 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting. This issue is on the newsstands now and the quilt and directions can be found in pages 90 through 97.If you’ve ever wanted to try curved piecing, this is the quilt for you as the instructions in the magazine are excellent! Need’l Love has a limited number of fabric kits available for this design, using the same fabrics shown in these pictures.
This quilt’s simplicity will appeal to all ages and accent a modern home as well as those filled with antiques. Use it on a bed or in your favorite relaxation spot. The beautiful design is 63-1/2″ x 63-1/2″ and uses fabrics from “Itsy Bits” collections of Stripettes, Dotsies and Checklets designed by Renee for Andover Fabrics. The colors span all seasons, and fit in with many decor color schemes.
You can really see the beautiful quilting done by Freda Smith on these blocks. This traditional design would also provide an excellent showcase for hand quilting. No matter which method you use, it will make a true heirloom!
