    Curve Master Foot

    I just ordered my curvemaster foot from Erica's for $23.99. I ordered one for my DIL too because you get free shipping on $39.00 or more. Also 1/2 off international shipping for all my friends across the way. This is the cheapest I could find on the Internet.

    I bought one of these at a quilt show. I don't remember the price though. I used it to make a drunkard's path quilt blocks. It takes practice so do get discouraged.
    Got fabric?

    I have that foot, but could never get the hang of using it.

    I want to echo Bella Boo. It is so much better for sewing curves but don't expect you will be able to do it easily at first. Just practice on a few pieces and you will get comfortable with this in no time. I think it is am excellent tool.

    I am interested in that. Once you get the hang of it, is it worth it?

    I have one I bought last year at a quilt show. Never played with it until a couple of weeks ago and was having trouble getting it to work. I just saw a demo yesterday. I also was trying to do a really difficult block. I need to do an easier block to start. Maybe drunkards path. The person at the booth said there are video demos on line. I haven't looked yet.

    Wish I could give you the links to the online videos. I watched them several times, put the foot on my machine, and wow! Great results! I had been stuggling for months with a DWR quilt and this tool helped me get it finished. Hope that anyone who invests in one also puts in the time of finding and watching the videos.

    Tried the foot and hate it. Instead...for sewing DP blocks. I sew one in from top...sew one inch from bottom...then ease in the fullness and sew...WITHOUT PINNING THE DARN THING. I just pin the top and bottom. Works every time and blocks are straight across!
    If you don't work on it you'll never finish it.

    I bought one this winter and like it. It does help with sewing the curses as the foot has the quarter inch guide. Another helpful hint when u r sewing curves is to hold the top piece of fabric up instead of trying to push it through on top of the bottom fabric. Try it, it makes a ton of difference.

    I bought the foot and it does take time to learn how to use it properly. I'm not that patient! I found this link on Pinterest. I haven't tried it yet but when I get around to my apple core, I'm gonna try it!! http://quiltorstitch.blogspot.com/20...nstead-of.html
