    Sewing curve without pins

    I always said I could NEVER do this. Now I think maybe I could. http://shecanquilt.blogspot.ca/2011/...seriously.html

    I tried curves once and said never again but she makes it look so easy I just might try it. Thank You.

    I've done DP blocks this way for years BUT I sew from the top down for an inch and then the bottom up for an inch...block always comes out square. It REALLY is an easy way to do curves. Just need to sew slowly and move your fabric.
    If you don't work on it you'll never finish it.

    Glad I'm not the only one who enjoyed it. I tried the technique with some scrap fabric today- not too bad!
