Curved Cornerstones + 41, 42, 43, 44, 45

The first design looks like it might have been made by a very creative spider! The second one is one way of using lots of purple scraps. Then that creative spider came back to spin another lovely web. At last, … Continue reading

Curved Cornerstones + 21, 22, 23, 24 and 25

Love playing with this little blocks running all over the place! It is a bit like adding quilting lines before adding the wadding and backing fabric. Sometimes the most effective way to use the lines of little squares is to … Continue reading

Curved Cornerstones 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15

The first three designs today show that even a clever idea can be overdone. I suspect that the designs would appeal to me more if the contrast between the cornerstones and the light was toned down a little! The contrast … Continue reading
