    I have been trying to sew curves all day, just practicing which is good because I sure am bad at it. I've read about several ways to do it but it is not working for me. Is there a secret trick to it?

    You are welcome for the link. I use to get so frustrated trying to do curves. But not any more, They seem to go quickly this way. And now I am hooked on them. lol

    I tried doing the apple core...it was no fun. I did start getting the hang of it but did not enjoy it. What are you making??

    Tammy just looked up your tute for curved seams. As a former dressmaker curves hold no fear for me but I just wanted to congratulate you on the tute. This is how I do it but just use two pins, however for beginners your tute would be invaluable. Well done and I hope lots of people use it to ease their fear of the dreaded curve.

    Thank you for the link. I tried it your way and it seemed to go much easier. Block is still just a little wonky. Going to keep practicing today and hope I improve.
