    it shows you the curve foot which could be used for any curves. Has anyone used this??? Does it work? They claim you do not have to use pins.

    I just watched that video - It looks great. I want to know if it really works too.

    I have one and it's so nice!!! I used to make this quilt. Oh, ya...and no pins which is awesome. You just have to take your time and go slow and keep lining your fabric up.

    I do the same thing with my 1/4" foot, no pins too. Try it using the same technique she uses, holding the top fabric up. Practice how close/far you hold the fabric.
    You really do need the tweezers on the last little bit :wink:
    I love this method :D:D:D

    Here's a video posted a while back that shows how to do curves without a special foot.

    I tried it, bought it twice! The first time I could never get the hang of it and sold it. A few years later I tried again. No way Jose! I guess I just don't have the eye hand co ordination for it. I do better with pins. But I seem to be in the minority.

    Me, too! I still have mine and one day I'll dig it back out and try again, but for now it's pins for me.

    OOOOHHHH!!! Another challenge for me!!! I am on a spending diet so if I can do that without buying a special foot, I just may do curves. Another project for after the holidays.....
