    Does anyone know how to sew curves with the method of paper-piecing? I would be very grateful for any tips or links to study.

    Paper piecing is straight lines only. You can create the illusion of a curve by doing a whole lot of small straight seams.

    Ok, I don't see anywhere on this pdf that this can't be shared or posted in this format... so I am hoping this doesn't break any rules :D:D:D

    This is for gentle curves

    I saw a video demo somewhere, but can't remember where. Will look for it.

    I saw it on one of the tv shows however the curved pieces were not flat pieces of fabric for lack of better words - she kind of folded the fabric in pleats as you curved the fabric around - does that make sense?

    I know this isn't what you had in mind but...

    I also found this book...
