Back Cover Information

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!!

Inside Information

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!

 

About the Author

Kay Oft, teacher, designer, and longarm quilter shares her passion for the art of quilting with students across the United States. Learning to quilt at a young age from her grandmother and mother, it seemed only natural for Kay to pursue her dream career in the field of quilting after retiring from teaching school thirty-two years.

Kay and her husband Mike live on a farm outside the Portland Metropolitan area in Oregon with their dogs, Bailey and Beethoven, several goats, and barn kitties.

Kay enjoys sharing her love of quilting with beginning and advanced students alike. She encourages them to enjoy and find inspiration as they express themselves in the creative process. Kay teaches her students to hone their skills as they master a variety of techniques, and to relax as they celebrate the worldwide community of quilters honoring the legacy of our ancestors in this craft and art-form called quilting
