When it comes to sewing curves, I would say I’m a visual learner. Such a visual learner that I need to see it actually being done! I use many different techniques for sewing curves, depending on the size of the piece I’m working on (and how patient I’m feeling). Jessee Maloney’s fantastic “Rainbow-Go-Round” (as seen in the Summer 2016 issue, available here) incorporates curves in a beautiful many-hued quilt.

The first video is by Angela Pingel of Cut to Pieces. It’s a nice, thorough video showing how to sew a Drunkard’s Path block, and also has some handy tricks thrown in.

The second video is by Leanne of she can quilt and is a quick little video showing how she sews a Drunkard’s Path without curves.

Do you have a favorite technique?  Let us know!
