behind the scenes: filming at Missouri Star Quilt Company!

Does curved piecing make you cringe? Well, we have good news for you! If you can sew a 1/4 inch seam, you can sew curves! With pins, practice, and a little patience, you'll learn to sew beautiful curves in Piecing Curves with Confidence. Sheri Cifaldi-Morrill, our award-winning instructor, will walk you through all the skills you need to get started including preparing fabric, using templates, cutting curves, pinning, piecing, and even quilting curves. Curves aren’t as dangerous as you might think, they just take a little finesse. Sheri will also break down the tips and tricks you need to match up curves, pin for precision, and play with design elements. By the end, you’ll even be inspired to discover and create your own curved quilting designs. With the basic quarter circle, or Drunkard's Path, block under your belt, you can use your new skills to try elongated curves, flowering snowballs, and so much more. Soon, you’ll be cutting and sewing curves like a champion!
