Re-designing.

I have now finished piecing the top of my curved paper pieced wall hanging.
Here is the wallhanging made by the class teacher.
The quilt top here is draped over the rolls of wadding in the shop so it isnt hanging straight, but you can get the idea.  
Below is how I have pieced mine together.  I had joined one block as above and I felt it was too "confusing".  I am much happier with how it is now.  If I hadnt done this in the class I probably would have used much different fabrics and it wouldnt be so "wow". I wasnt sure that I would be able to work out an alternative block arrangement - so pleased it worked out.

It is ready to sandwich and quilt - next thing is working out how I will quilt it.

Marilyn, thanks for stopping by and your quilt is fantastic in colours - great work - it meant a lot of stitching by hand.

It certainly deserves that wow...like your version so much better, I find the teacher's version too, busy but at the same time somehow boring...love yours...
