Learn to Sew Easy Curves – Home Decor Projects

Remember, as you read- Learn To Sew Easy Curves is a book based on a facing technique which allows you to sew a facing fabric to a curved shape and applique it into your design. Everything you see is NOT curved piecing.

Learn to Sew Easy Curves has range. It has quilts, a couple block ideas for you to expand on and a few project for your home. The bathmat above is made from light weight terry cloth, or dollar store towels. The duck design is included in the book and because you are stitching a fabric facing to the design, you are able to create great curves with non-traditional fabrics.



One of my favorite things about the home decor projects in the book is that they are fast. Above are the mug rug designs from Learn to Sew Easy Curves. The organic leaf shape is faced and applied after the entire piece is finished and quilted. The leaves are 3D with the veins holding the leaf to the mug rug. Pretty neat, right?



The place mats and runner (above) not only make up quickly but add a big punch to your kitchen. You can choose to make the set of place mats identical or change up the placement of the circles to have the mats simply “coordinate”. The options are endless.


One great tip for all the home decor projects is that they are small enough for you to dive in and try your hand a free motion quilting on your domestic home sewing machine. Sure it looks fun online, and you definitely doodle while you’re on the phone, but the idea of quilting a quilt on your home machine is exhausting. Well, this is it. Whip up the place mats or mug rug and give it a go. The bathmat was also quilted on my domestic home machine (Elna 3701).
