Today I'll be showing my quick curved seams tutorial.
Recently I've been working on a few quilts that have curved piecing. Curved piecing is fairly new to me - I've avoided any curved piecing for years simply because I'd heard that it was a pain. But one of my goals for this year was to really challenge myself in the quilt-making department so I chose a pattern and dove right in.
And guess what? The curved piecing is no big deal. Seriously. (Or as my nephew says, "silliously.") Let me show you how I do it.
Now a couple of notes:
First of all, I use a 1/4" presser foot with a metal guide on the right hand side. I'm sure you can do this technique without that guide, but it sure helps.
Secondly, you're going to want a pair of those handy-dandy tweezers. My machine came with a pair that work fine, but I LOVE these bent tip tweezers that I found on Amazon recently. You can get a pack of 4 for about $5!
Want to see more great tips and tricks? Amy has curated a fantastic board on Pinterest that's chock-full of helpful tips for any quilter. And you can see the other stops on the blog hop here, with more great ideas.
And if you haven't had a peek at Amy's new book, you can see some of her gorgeous quilts here. Fabulously Fast Quilts is a great book for any quilter - from beginner to not-so-beginner like me :) Not only does it have 12 great quilt patterns, but it has plenty of quick quilting tips and tricks as well. Oh and see that quilt - bottom row, center? It's called "Modern Buzz Saw" and it's now on my to-do list!
