Slow Down, Curves Ahead!

I had leftovers cut out from the challenge wallhanging of last year; I found them when it was time to purge that bin of its contents and reassign it to something new. So, what to do with the leftovers? Pitch them? Nah, I decided to put them together and add them to the burgeoning Orphan Block bin. I had never been too excited about the piecing order on the Winding Ways block and tried something new this time. I put together the top and bottom sections and decided to join the block along the gentle "S" curve center seam.
Pin, pin, pin... never too many pins on curves; and slower stitching, let up a bit on that foot pedal!
Voilà!

Voilà  times four! These have now joined the other orphan blocks for a someday quilt.
So, I'm on a roll... plenty of pins and a deep breath; there are more curves just ahead... stay tuned!

Life is Good!

I think your piecing method makes good sense. And the blocks look great. : )
