The reason I procrastinated on it is because I didn't look forward to all those curved seams and then finally setting the center 25 block square into a border frame made up of all these odd shaped pieces. And the pattern comes with very few instructions! But, I must say, it came together very nicely. The worst of it was putting the last two arcs into the corners of the border section, but even that went better than expected. The original pattern came printed out on fairly heavy paper, but I think this is what made it come together so nicely. It did not get a chance to get stretched. Now to pick the rest of the paper off the border :-(. That is the part I don't like about paper piecing. I'll have to invite some friends over for coffee and work on while chatting...or procrastinate for another four years before it gets quilted LOL. Hopefully not. But, that is an interesting question...how do you quilt something like this???
