Before I ventured into free motion quilting, I quilted all quilts with a walking foot, but it was simple let's get it done kinda quilting.

So, I was thrilled when Craftsy.com offered a class to kick it up a notch!

Curved Piecing



I am taking Ann Petersen's class, Playing with Curves. She has great tips for the paper piecing the sun rays and how to successfully piece gentle curves. Have you tried curved piecing?  What is your favorite technique for paper piecing and curves?
