    Looks good. Keep up the good work. Love your colors.
    A home is built of peace and love,
    and not of wood and stone,
    a place where happiness lives
    and memories are sewn.

    It looks like you've mastered the curve! I like how you have the blocks laid out. The design resembles a Chinese porcelin container with a lid.

    Your blocks look so fresh & crisp! And the curves are perfect! Don't you think curves are fun to piece? I do. I know... I'm weird. LOL! Hey, I like to sew on binding, too. Double weird!

    Your fabric is going to make for a lovely curvacious quilt!

    I've never heard of this foot .... please tell us more about it!
    Is it one for all machines?

    Don't know if it makes it easier as I haven't tried it with a regular foot. It fits any machine except 3 not sure which ones, you would have to look the company up and contact them. Its my first time using the foot and doing curves so sorry I can't give much information, maybe someone more experienced with the foot can give you more info

    Curves are not something I've ever tried. Did not know there was a "curvemaster foot." Learning from this board again. Love it. Be sure to keep us posted on your project!

    I just ordered the Curve Master Foot after seeing your quilt block! I have some quilt patterns that I want to do and they have curved pieces in them. I went to you tube and watched some videos and decided I needed to take the plunge!!!

    Nice quilt block!!!

    I have also never heard of the curvemaster foot. It looks like it could make sewing curvy patterns a lot easier. How much is the foot? If I were to ever sew alt of curvy pieces, I'm sure it will be handy.

    I bought mine on Amazon but the seller is Kens sewing and vacuum. I have purchased several things from Kens website. It was a couple of dollars more on there personal web site so I just bought it through Amazon. It was $23.50 and free shipping!!!!

    Great Job!

    I saw this foot demonstrated at the Houston IQF a few years ago..
    DMIL and I both excitedly bought the foot with all sorts of projects in mind to do.

    Neither of us has gotten around to using it!

    I really need to get mine out! :-)
    So many ideas... so many projects.. so little time!
