If you're afraid of curved piecing, then fear no more! Try GO! Local Color, a great Block on Board (BOB) die by designer Bill Kerr, as it will instantly remove the anxiety you may feel from sewing curves. The interlocking circles in this fascinating GO! Local Color Quilt Pattern is a wonderful way to play with design, and your finished quilt will look like a work of art in the end.

The GO! Local Color Quilt features beautiful fabric from "The Color Collection" by Andover Fabrics, but you can attack your fabric stash and put your own design stamp on this quilt. Perhaps try different shades of the same color and maybe alternate rows with another color. Or, use your favorite contrasting colors as intertwining circles for the entire quilt.




Curved piecing is so much easier now thanks to the notches on our GO! dies, which make for ultra easy pinning and incredibly fast sewing. "I love those notches!" Bill says.

Learn how to make one of these easy blocks from Bill himself, and you won't be able to stop thinking about all the design possibilities you have with the GO! Local Color die. We also have more than 40 other BOB dies to feed your creativity.

Have a little fun with curved piecing this summer!
