OMG for October

     I've decided to pull an older quilt out of the mix for my OMG October goal.   I'll be doing a little of this...




and a little of this...



as I finish the blocks and put together the top of my clam shell quilt.  I love the warm and bright colours of this quilt and I'm looking forward to spending some more time with it.  



I haven't done a lot of curved piecing and it's been a while,  so I'm hoping it's like riding a bicycle. This pattern uses the quick curve ruler and some trimming, so it's a little easier than some drunkard paths. I'm linking up with the OMG linkup at Elm Street Quilts.  I'm hoping it will keep me motivated and on track.  I was supposed to be working on these blocks all this week but that didn't happen.  Tomorrow is always another day.

  14. OOH! This is a lovely quilt Lisa! I have a love for pink and orange ever since I made an improv curves quilt for my eldest daughter, so freeing both in freeform cutting and in out-of-my-comfort-zone-but-I-fell-in-love colours!
