Today I will be teaching you how to make a Rolling Tides quilt block using an improv pinless curves technique. Lets begin!
- (2) 5" x 16" pieces of background fabric (I used essex linen in natural)
- (1) 4" x 16" piece of pieced patchwork pieced however you want as long as it is the correct size
- Pencil or Marking Pen
- 45mm or smaller Rotary Cutter
- Starch and Iron
Here is where the "improv" part comes in. For the patchwork section of the block, I am leaving you to be creative and piece it however you would like. I just pulled a bunch of scraps from my scrap bin that were similar widths and pieced them together until it was long enough, then I trimmed the piece down to 4" x 16". You could use squares, triangles, chevrons, herringbone, or you could even piece the patchwork with curviness like the overall block. Have fun with it!
