Announcing the First Ever Just Curves Quilt Contest!

Carolina Favorite Quilt

The Carolina Favorite Block shown here needs a new, exciting quilt designed for it.  So, we are holding our first ever contest.

GRAND PRIZE:  $200.00 and Bragging Rights

Here’s the scoop:  (The Rules)

Design and sew a quilt top (quilting optional) using the Carolina Favorite template set.  If you don’t already have a set, it is available for purchase at HALF PRICE at the Just Curves website.  Click on the A Just Curves link in the Blogroll in the right hand column.

The quilt must be a minimum of 3 blocks and maximum of 6 blocks.  Colors, layout, sashing, borders, and settings are entirely your option as the designer.

      Shalom Yochi,
      WOW! a curved Vegetables quilt sounds beautiful. Someday I will try one, after I finish some of the UFO’s hanging around.
      In answer to your question about a double wedding ring, make a test block first. That way you can find the problems and correct before making the “real” quilt top. I did that and the quilt I made turned out beautifully. Just remember to sew slowly and carefully. Good luck!
      Shalom and quilting hugs,
      Sue G

      • Yochi & Sue, thanks for your comments. Re the DWR, try my new templates for simplified cutting, and remember the Curve Master Presser Foot allowed me to make my first DWR, queen size, in just 3 days!
