Does the thought of creating perfectly smooth curves intimidate you? Well, it doesn’t have to! Award-winning quilter Toby Lischko shares her savvy piecing techniques to help you create pucker-free curves, first using a simple pinning technique and then with paperless foundation piecing, all building up to the New York Beauty block. Learn to create three stunning curved quilts with Toby’s step-by-step guidance and, by the end of class, you’ll be cutting and piecing smooth curves like a pro.
Meet designer Toby Lischko and start by reviewing the Hourglass Quilt. Toby shares her tips for accurate quarter-inch seams, then shows you how to prepare strip sets and cut curves with plastic templates you can also make yourself!
Now that your curves are cut, it's time to sew! See how to stitch concave and convex curves using only a few well-placed pins. Match up your blocks to complete the Hourglass Quilt.
See how sewing shallow curves creates the beautiful secondary design in the Glorified Nine Patch With a Twist Quilt. Each block features construction similar to a nine-patch, but with stunning results. Step it up with chain piecing to make these blocks quickly.
