  1. I’ve made two wallhangings that had some curves to them. It wasn’t as bad or as hard as I thought it would be, but definitely a technique to practice more before I would say I’m comfortable with it.

  2. I sewed my first curves only last week, while making a bucket tote which has a circle for the bottom. I liked it but it wasn’t perfect by any means so I clearly need more practice.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  5. Im working on an apple core (my first) the pieces are large but I think small would be quite doable too. As a garment sewer I’ll say, it’s easier than set I sleeves on little girl party dresses, ha!

  9. I tried my first curved piecing recently. And I love the way it turned out. Now all I have to do is find a way to finish it that fits well with the circles of the piecework.

  13. What a neat looking book! Yes I have sewn curves and appliqued circles. I love some of the new patterns I’ve seen using circles and curves. Would love to add this book to my library! Congratulations again on five years!

    Thank you for a super giveaway and a chance to win. Two winners! Woot! Woot! You Rock!

  14. Would love to do more with curves…….bet this book would help!


    August 15, 2013

  15. I have not done circles but have done slight curves. I’m sure this book would help a lot.


    August 15, 2013

  16. I have looked at this a lot but have not been brave or patient enough to try it yet….

  17. I didn’t have much luck when I tried to sew a drunkards path block. I was so attracted to one quilt pattern made up entirely drunkards path blocks. I bought the template; as soon as I got it I cut 2 squares with the template. One turned out so-so, the other turned out not-so-great. It had lots of puckers and was awfully wavey. So I gave up. If I win, I hope I can follow your instructions on how to sew easy curves because I really don’t want to have to purchase the curved piecing foot. Thank you for the chance to win.

  18. I have sewn gentle curves but not a quilt with circles and lots of curves. Would love to learn!

  19. I’ve sewn curves on art quilts, but nothing where a perfect circle was required. If you say sewing circles and curves is easy-peasey, I need to get a copy of this book to learn.

  24. I LOVE to sew curves! I don’t like to cut them unless they are cut with a die cutter like Accuquilt. I also like to sew them if they are “wonky”. Thanks for the chance to win!
