Curved piecing scares people. Many quilters see it fussy and difficult, and fake it or even avoid it altogether. Yet like many techniques it’s not nearly as difficult as it appears, and Angela Pingel offers an introduction to curved piecing via one simple block—Drunkard’s Path. The block itself is made up of units that are a simple quarter circle in a square. These units can be put together in various patterns that look absolutely different in every combination. Drunkard’s Path can create a sinuous staggering line like its namesake, or curved motifs that form teardrops, arabesques, flowers, and other discrete shapes. The book starts with the basics of curved piecing and then Angela offers up a variety of patterns. Many are full-size quilts, but there are some smaller patterns as well, such as baby quilts, pillows, and a table runner. Some offer a significant challenge in a non-daunting size, some are large projects that look much harder than they actually are, making for achievable bragging rights. Some quilts may contain a lot of straight piecing with curved accents, while others make intensive use of curves to really hone the quilter’s skills. The curved templates range in size from large “training wheel” versions to rather small—demanding more precision and control on the part of the quilter.A pattern insert or template pages will provide all the template pieces needed.

I am very happy with my purchase-I got the bundle. So glad I did because if you just get the eBook you don't get the templates! The price was exceptional and quality of the book is too! I have just finished my first block and it turned out perfect--just watch that quarter inch seam allowance and make it consistent!
