    Does anyone know how to do the curved piecing technique like what is shown on the Vicorian Table Runner Pattern on page 82 of the Clothilde cataloge? It is NOT curved piecing...somehow you use regular squares and you come out with a curve in your design.

    Here is a pic of it. I don't think these curves are sewn as curved pieces...but I may be wrong..I may just buy the pattern to find out.

    *** i had to be a stick in the mud and delete the picture. it must be copyrighted. luckily, mary shared a pic with us of her finished quilt. just as good a reference. thanks, mary. :-) **

    Yes, I agree buy it. That is gorgeous. The ones here that are good with curves will help you. That even make me want to try curves. Something I am very afraid of. :oops: Wish I had someplace to use a table runner.

    It sure is dramatic, but to me, it looks like curved piecing.

    I have that pattern. It isn't curved piecing at all.

    I made mine into a queensize quilt though.

    So what is the trick? Is it appliqued? It really looks curved. I'm curious now.

    An extra piece is sewn into the seam then after it is sewn together it is folded back and the bias causes it to curve like that then I had to go back and stitch each little fold down. When I was doing the big quilt I had to stitch it down as I went along because it becomes quite big & bulky.

    If you would like step by step pictures I can do that later.

    I would be very interested in step by step pictures. :-) It looks hard; don't know if it is beyond me, but it is absolutely beautiful!

    Very pretty, but I can't believe the pattern and the technique are not copyrighted! How about just sharing the designer's name so we can get our own patterns/instructions from the creator?

    The pattern in called Victorian Table Runner and you can get it at your LQS probably or you can order it on line at several shops. Clotilde.com has it. Or there is another runner similar to this one called Tulip Bells Table Runner...I don't know who the designer is. I looked for it to buy at my LQS and she had run out of the pattern, so I'm ordering it. It is lovely, isn't it?

    techniques can't be copyrighted. they must be patented. this technique would be difficult to patent because it's based on the one used to form the arches in cathedral windows quilts.
