Working with curves in quilts opens the door to a world of immense beauty, excitement, and grace. Quiltmaker Judy B. Dales teaches you her methods for creating free-form curved designs. Step-by-step instructions take you from the design stage through making the master pattern and templates, demonstrating that curves need not be complex or difficult to be effective. Special techniques showyou how to use registration and intersection marks to ensure perfectly flat pieced tops. Learn to create contrasts using the color, value, and texture of your fabrics. Includes 5 projects ranging from intermediate skill level to advanced. Photographs of over 50 finished quilts provide creative inspiration.
