How to do a curve window

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I was doing the 5th block in Chirstmas in Italy.  The house requires three curved windows.  It is not like I haven’t done these before but have found putting notches into them not effective for me and I have just needled turned them with very little success in getting the ideal shape.  This time I followed the technieque of makeing a yo-yo.  This allowed me to get the curve which I was much happier with.  I first tacked down the straight folds to provide the starting frame of the window.  Then I used a tacking stitch along the area I wanted to curve then pulled it together which resulted in the curving of the fabric.  From their I stitched the window down and it was completed I lovely curved window.
