Cutting Curves from Straight Pieces



Author: Debbie Bowles

Curves catch the eye. Learn to elevate your quilts beyond the ordinary using what the author calls ‘bent pieces.’ Transform even your favorite traditional patterns using the three simple types of cuts demonstrated here. Sixteen projects and easy to follow instruction will have you bowing to rave reviews in no time. Even learning these techniques offers immediate rewards – the practice segments become a wallhanging.

Instructions are included for bending such traditional favorites as Triple Rail Fence, Churn Dash, Log Cabin, and Thelma’s Choice. Bent segments make interesting borders and sashing strips, too. It’s easy. Just stack fabrics and using a rotary cutter, cut gentle curves. Sew strips together and enjoy the results.
