I worked on my Winding Ways quilt blocks yesterday and I made some pretty good progress with them. This is not a quilt block that I can just whip through and have done quickly. All of that curved piecing requires lots of time and pinning - which I usually try to avoid. One good thing is that after sewing so many of the curved pieces I have it down to just using two pins.
I have seen photos of two-pronged pins and if I ever see them in the store I will have to buy them. I think they would work wonderfully to hold the layers together so they won't shift...and I would only need to use one pin!
I already have quite a few blocks completed and I have included an old photo of my design wall. I have changed things up a bit with the construction of the blocks and I am chain piecing them now and I think it is speeding things up a bit.
After my sewing session yesterday I have all of the pink corner sections of the blocks pieced. When I left off previously I had finished the sections with the brown corner pieces. The next step is to sew the center sections to the corners. I have already pinned quite a few of them so they will be ready for me to sew today.
