On my design surface is the ongoing commissioned quilt I've been working on, Winding Ways. I'm happy to report that another task has been crossed off the list.
The last blocks have finally been pieced! I cut these with my Accuquilt GO die. That helped a lot by making all the pieces identical.
I did seem to need a lot of pins on that final joining of the curved half sections.
36 Copper blocks, 36 Cream blocks, and 9 mixed blocks with turquoise equals 972 pieces sewn. The quilt commissioner and her daughter will be coming over one night this week to help me play layout and switcheroo. From now on there are no more curved seams. I will have to match a million points but all the seams will be straight. Yay for that!

My sister and I went to the Road to California show on Saturday. We walked around for about five hours straight and had a great time, though the four hours of driving there and back was tiring with the high winds we were having. I went to bed early and fell asleep reading a new pattern.
There was a lot of replenishment of neutrals, but also some fun batik bundles and a taste of cheddar. I didn't find the Sew Kind of Wonderful pattern I was looking for, but did come home with another for the Quick Curve Ruler (Metro Twist). The Little Bites pattern "Whit" was the one I fell asleep reading :) The crowd thinned late in the afternoon and we were being handed free items right and left, including the Gammill bag that can be worn as a backpack, and a tape measure. I took many photos of quilts and could have taken a couple of hundred more. I'll share some in another post--so many talented quilters out there!
