BookWelcome to the "curvy" world of Nancy Elliott MacDonald!  You'll love this simple technique for putting together traditional Winding Ways blocks and her fun, down-to-earth attitude about quiltmaking. Soon you'll be whipping through those curved seams like a pro!

Rounds© is the basic set. It includes 2 pieces. A pie-shaped piece and a corner piece form a simple quarter-circle BASIC block.

All result in 6-inch finished blocks. It includes 3 sets: available.

1. Rounds©
2. Rounds Plus© and 
3. Rounds and Then Some©

Rounds Plus© is the next set. It includes 4 pieces. The larger pieces “split” the two Rounds pieces in half to add variety and more fabrics to the design. The two small pieces make a 3-inch basic block. Four of these equal a 6-inch block and they may be arranged in many different ways. These blocks add variety as well. They may also be used on their own.
