The block of the month for April was to be curved piecing.  The demos at the last guild meeting were excellent and each person did a splendid job of showing their technique and hints for curved piecing.  I have done a lot of curved piecing and do enjoy the way the work looks when finished but was not excited about doing a "dunkard path" type star or something similar.

I love to applique and if it comes to what I really love it is hand work. I find the process of needle into fabric and pulling the thread to see the stitches form very relaxing and creative.  So, when I remembered a star with curved applique it took me to google search it out.

I found it here:  Quilting Treasures  QT 
click Patterns and Projects then scroll through a lot of great patterns and projects to"
The pattern:  Thru The Window using Fat Quarters of Lola Textures
Designed By: Gina Gempesaw Finished Quilt Size: 55" x 70" Block Size: 12" x 12"

My block turned well and I loved the applique work.  

and now there are four
