Since I know next to nothing about quilting, I'm making a Christmas practice quilt. My pieced blocks have been going pretty well. Sunbonnet Sue is one of my all time favorites, so I decided to give her a try. I read every hint and tip I could find and set off today to make her.
Problem #1 even you folks can't fix. I spent 10 minutes trying to iron the pieces on the block and couldn't get it done. I reread the instructions and kept on trying. Finally, I realized I forgot to take the paper off!! :oops: Everything ironed just fine. You can't fix stupid!
I starched the block into cardboard just like a tip on here said to do. That worked great.
The problem is my curves. They are jagged. I've read tips that say you have to pivot with the needle on the inside or the outside depending on the shape of the curve, but I just don't get it. Can you give me specific tips based on these pictures?
Jagged hat which I tried to fix and made worse.
How do I smooth out these curves????
