Get Connected with Curves! Kay will introduce you to some tricks
and tools to make piecing curved patches easier, more accurate,
and maybe, even fun to do!!
Piecing curved patches has been an advanced technique challenging
quilters over the years. Since the invention of the rotary cutter
and the many efficient time-saving methods and techniques of strip
piecing, few quilters have been willing to tackle the process of
piecing curved patches..."it takes too long..."it's too
hard to cut all those pieces out...and ..."it's just to hard
to put in all those pins, remember which curve goes on top and which
on bottom, and then (sigh) I can never get those seams with an accurate
1/4" without tucks and pleats!"
Well sign no more....I'm here to introduce you to some tricks and
tools to make piecing curved patched easier, more accurate, and
maybe, even fun to do!
