Single Girl Quilt Along - Ring 1 & 2

Combos of pink, fuschia, plum and purple

*So far the best way I've found to piece the inner and outer archs to your rings is to first crease each piece in the middle (as suggested in the quilt along and DS' instructions) and place a pin - then match up your ends and pin, THEN go back between your three pins and pin appropriately (wow, hope that makes sense to everyone:) This avoids your ends not matching up/fabric overhang once completed.
I only had to rip out one outer arch because when I reached the end, I had at least a 1/4 inch overhang and it didn't look good.... once I did the the way I suggested...ends matched up perfectly and you have a nice finished block.*

  1. I'm not doing the SG (yet), but am sewing some stuff with curves, and I'm pinning the exact same way you are! I have the curve master foot for my machine, but I can't seem to get the hang of it, and I don't have the time to play around.
