    Has anyone made this quilt? I've made many pieces and parts (too fun!) but sewing them all together is difficult at best (for me anyway) Does anyone have some hints for sewing the curved pieces together accurately? Thanks!

    Some people pin to where the pieces look like porcupines, other's use three pins... ME? I have to hand sew them LMBO
    Go to YouTube and search sewing curves tutorials...try a few methods on scraps and see what works best for you :D:D:D

    I bought a Curve Master sewing foot. At first I felt I wasted my money but after practice it works great to sew curves.

    its a clear foot for the sewing machine thats a cross between FM and not - it just kinda touches the feed dogs and allows you to curve the 2 pieces together.

    it comes with universal attachments so i think it fits every maker now.

    here's a link

    I am working on Indian Orange Peel too. I have a similar question after sewing the arcs to the center block about every which way -- my question is which way works best -- leave the paper in or take it off the unit before joining units. I am about to start the border piecing...
