New Quilt: Hop on Spot

All the blocks are done... New Quilt Blocks These look way more complicated than they really are. I was inspired by Dioramamama's tutorial for easy curved piecing. Her tutorial was easy to follow, and these blocks came together very easily. I pieced one giant, long strip from all the orange, yellow, and aqua fabrics that I had in my stash. I then followed the tutorial, using pieces of the long strip for the center of the circle. The only trouble I had was removing the freezer paper, but eventually I realized that I was probably using too much glue. I can't wait to see this one come together.

Wow your circles look so perfect! I've been having trouble piecing curves, so I think I'm going to try that method she shows.
