I made the rainbow curve, Sheila! This is probably not the final curve. I’d like it taller and more narrow. And this is definitely not the background fabric. This is just what was on my wall.
I used 2.5″ strips of print and 1.5″ of white WoF. (Oooh, what if I used two 1.5″ strips of color? Twice the gathering!)
I increased my top tension, and stretched each strip as I added it, starting with the dark floral print and working my way down to the blue, letting the one on the bottom ease in. Then I gathered the inside edge of the blue.
It’s a little puckery. Once I finalize the curve, I’ll have to figure out how to stitch it down. I think a little fullness could be nice texture on a baby quilt? I hope so.
