Another Finished Practice Quilt
I took the class offered by my guild during our quilt show in February, this year. The pattern is Canyon Dance designed by Tracy Trevethan, who taught the class. Everyone brought their own fabrics and purchased the pattern and templates from Tracy. Each block is made up of 5 curved pieces. Everyone in the class had different color way and set their blocks as they chose. My fabrics are from my stash. The only rules I used in selecting them were that they needed to be pink or green and had to have enough to make several blocks. Once the blocks were finished I did a number of different layouts and decided that I like this version the best. Piecing this one was much easier that doing the Canyon Waves quilt (done in May and June of last year) because I used a curve master foot. Even so, I would not say that I fully mastered this technique, and some pieces will probably be a little twisted after washing, but I enjoyed being with my quilting friends and making the blocks.
