Droplets for Curves Class

I've been working on a new project for Curves Class - one for those of you who'd like to learn to draft your own curved pattern pieces!

Chicopee Droplet journal cover

It's my Droplet covered journal with a single, symmetrical curve.  During week 4, Advanced Curves, there will be 3 curve-drafting projects for students to choose from.  This one is sweet and simple - a lovely first go at this skill.

I filled out my Chicopee version with lots of scraps, front and back.

And then made a second version in Heather Ross' Itsy Bitsy Spider print.  How could I not?

A sprinkle of embroidery, just for kicks?  That's totally optional, of course!  Do you like?

Next up (behind the scenes) is my new mini quilt for the Advanced Curves drafting week.  I won't be sharing that one here, since I always keep a few projects private as happy little surprises for my students.  But, I can tell you that if you like Droplets....

Registration for Curves Class and Handstitched opens January 1st.  Click Here for details!
