Janet's influence - technique
I was asked if the smaller curvy pieces were fused to the larger rectangles - the answer is no. All the blocks, as well as the quilt top assembly were free hand cut and pieced with 1/ 4" or less of a seam allowance. Making the blocks, and sewing them into strips was easy, but free hand cutting the long strips was the most difficult part. If you really like this style, I'd recommend that you take a class with Janet Steadman, or one of the other teachers that use a free hand cutting and piecing technique.
