Check out the subtle black and red striped corded piping in between the twists and the background of this block. Sweet, huh?
(Yes, I know these are straight seams, not curves. I’m SHARING my inspiration.)
I’d recommend a narrow (1/2″ finished) sashing between blocks, otherwise the bulk of the cording might be problematic when you press. You would still be able to slide and lock the intersection at the middle of each block, but flattening the seam allowances would be the issue.
