    Hi
    I have just been reading comments about the Curve master foot. I have one but have not used it much. It was demoed at a British quilt show and wetted my interest again.

    Has anyone done an apple core/dog bone quilt using this foot? when it was demoed and on the YouTube clips it always has the convex curve on the top. how do you sew the concave curve? do you have to turn the work over or does it work the same?

    Also all of you that have done drunkards path - did you use templates for cutting and if so which did you use?

    Many thanks in advance. xxx

    I purchased the curvmaster foot but didn't have much good luck using it. I hope some like it and will demostrate how to use it, then I might get better results with mine.

    This is how I do mine. And I don't need the curve master. Very easy this way. And I do use templates and you can see by the photos which ones.lol Hope this helps.

    I don't have a Curve Master Foot but can tell you that I cut all of my Apple Cores and Drunkard's Path pieces (and Double Wedding Ring!!!) with my Accuquilt Studio.

    I have the Curve Master. However, I don't use it.

    I posted a tutorial on 'Curved Seams' and you can read it. I think you will understand what I mean. If not ... PM me.

    emmm have to say this is the only shape that has tempted me to buy an Accuquilt. I looked at them but they are quite expensive - I am not sure how much I would use it.

    I LOVE the CurveMaster foot - I've used it mostly for Drunkard's Path, but I recently did a bunch of apple core pairs.

    I'm not working on that quilt right now - haven't even pressed the pairs, yet, but I *think* it will do rows just fine. It's sewing the rows together that will need hand-sewing.
