NOTE: Watch Pattern Pull-Out Section
The angular elements in the center of Nata- lie’s quilt are beautifully framed by the curving components in the outer edge.
Natalie implies that you try out the curves using scrap fabrics prior to piecing with your true quilt fabrics. This way you can really hit your stride before at- inviting the tiny curves along with your quilt fabrics.
Utilize a precise 1/4˝ seam allowance throughout to ensure all components of the quilt ﬁt together well.
Manage all prejudice edges carefully to avoid distortion.
Fabric yardage assumes 40″ usable width of fabric (WOF) unless otherwise noticed.
