I have to say that Judy Neimeyer's method of gluing your curves before sewing is spectacular! I never would have thought of this. You just put a small amount of Elmer's school glue (the glue stick that goes on purple and dries clear) in the seam allowance area and adhere the curved pieces together. It is so slick... no pins and the the curves are beautiful.
Now that I've accomplished the first block and now the second is coming along so much quicker, I actually believe I can get this quilt finished soon.
