Playing with Curves

with Ann Petersen
Playing with Curves
Round out your quilting repertoire! Let Ann Petersen take the fear out of sewing curved seams and open up a new world of piecing.

Don’t let curves be your archenemy. Ann demystifies sewing curved pieces to create stunning blocks full of movement and grace. Ann will show you how to cut and pin your pieces before easing them through the sewing machine to create curved seams free of puckering or pleats. Once you master sewing a gentle curve, add paper piecing or even free-form piecing into the mix to create a whole new variety of quilts.

You'll learn how to cut arcs using a variety of custom, reusable templates, in addition to step-by-step instructions for constructing each of Ann's intricate blocks. You'll leave the class with five patterns and templates that can be made into place mats or any quilt top of your choice, as well as a burst of confidence every time you sew on a curve.

"I took this class because I was interested in learning more about piecing with curves. I had taken Ann's quilting class and really liked her style so was really excited to see this one. It DOES NOT DISAPPOINT!! Ann's instructions are easy to understand and she makes the process fun. She gives alternative ways to do most things in case the student isn't comfortable with a particular method, which is very helpful. I purchased the class yesterday and stayed up late last night to watch the lessons because they were so interesting and informative. The projects for the class are gorgeous and I can't wait to make all of them."
