About the Book Creative Curves

The book is divided into 2 section, the first covers sewing machine piecing and Virginia's NO PINS sewing technique for curves. Second, it covers designing and how to apply that to curves to the diagonal straight lines of half-square triangles.. NOTE: Using the Creative Curves Rulers make the cutting easy by standardization of the curved pieces and strip cutting. Each is cut is on the straight of grain except for the occasional speciality cut.

The book leads the quilter through design techniques, basic blocks and moves into curve pieced borders. A sampler quilt offers basic blocks to more complicated blocks. SEE More PICTURES BELOW
