The die cuts REALLY well, it has little notches that you are supposed to line up with the different pieces so they sew together easy.
I wound up spending quite a bit of time on YouTube learning how to do curved piecing - I saw quite a few different ways (and each way seemed a little more confusing than the other!) to line them up so I decided to pin them together and hope for the best!!
It looked super wonky....
The first few seams I messed up a little bit and had some puckered seams but since it was my first time with curved seams I think it turned out ok. I'm positive it could have been a whole lot worse!
After I did the first row I decided that I could make a few more rows to see how difficult it would be to piece more than one seam together at a time. Plus cutting fabric on the Accuquilt is way too much fun - especially with a 4 year old helping.
I finally decided that doing a 9 patch quilt block would be good enough until I figured out what (if anything) I wanted to do with the fabric. I think I'm going to make another 9 patch block of different fabrics and make it into a doll blanket for the girls. Miss L is seriously into her babies lately and I'm sure she would love to have their own blankets to cover them up with.
I'm not sure what the heck I did wrong on the last applecore piece - it lined up perfectly when I was sewing it and the seams all the way across all line up but it has some overhang. Leave it to me to get some funky edging on a new project.
All and all I think I did a pretty good job for my first time trying to do curved seams. Thank you YouTube for being there to help me out - I would be lost without you! Hopefully I can tackle the backing and Miss L can have a cute little blankie for her babies.
