    Sewing Curved Seams ***

    Below are some photos of step by step how to sew curved seams. I used the drunkards path acrylic templates in this, because it is what I have. However, any curve seams you are sewing...
    You will need to find and snip the center of each piece to match up. DON'T forget the pins on the side. I find this to be a very important part. I have tried these other ways, however this is the way that goes so smooth for me. I would say accurate cutting is the key and acrylic templates give us that. And from what I hear so do the "GO" cutters. I hope this helps all of you who have found this to be a huge struggle like I previously did.
    There are 15 photos for this so please be patient while I load all of them.

    Thank you, You're welcome. I thought it would be good to do it like this, because sometimes when we are doing things we like to be able to do it with the photos to make sure we are on track. lol Glad it helped you. Once you get to going on it, you will probably be hooked.

    Thanks so much for this tute. I am getting ready to do a small drunkards path for my Sylvia's bridal sampler and was very unsure of how to proceed. Now I know!!

    Thanks for the great tutorial. Curved piecing is on my "to learn" list. Every year I have a short list of things I want to learn during the year, this is on the list for this year.

    Your tutorial was clear and easy to understand. I bookmarked it so I can refresh my mind when I start that project.
    Thank you.
