Instruction PageSlow Down, Curves Ahead Book Information

Slow Down, Curves Ahead is a curved book and while 'all' of the curved rulers (circular and oval curves) have been used to make the quilts in the book, all but 4 of the 14 patterns can be made with any one of the Creative Curves Rulers and the Creative Curves Ellipse Ruler set. These are the quickest and easiest patterns to date. Once again, the option to use a different size ruler to make the quilts is given on the inside of the back Cover.

Approximately a third of the book is comprised of patterns that use the Creative Curves Rulers (4", 3", 2" and/or 1 1/2" - circular curves), a third of the patterns use the Creative Curves Ellipse Rulers (2" X 4" and 1 1/2" X 3" - oval curves). The remaining third of the patterns are made by combining 2 rulers, either 2 different sizes of circular curved rulers (i.e.; 2" and 4") and one pattern combines circular and oval curved rulers.

This book has extensive graphics showing how to align the rulers to cut the pieces, seam allowances included, to make the quilts. Combine Virginia's easy 'No Pins' sewing method for curves and this book is a must have.
