Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
As every quilter knows, it is much more difficult to piece together curved shapes than traditional straight-edged squares, triangles, and rectangles. When she began quilting, Pignatelli, originally a fine artist, wanted to create the flowing, curved lines that had come to her so easily as a painter but found it almost impossible when using traditional methods. After much experimentation, she came up with a method to create curves using freezer paper for templates and then blind-stitching fabric patches to a stabilizer foundation. Here she explains her method in full, using nine illustrative step-by-step patterns as learning tools. Once the curved-piecing technique is mastered, she introduces the reader to padded and sculptured applique and free-motion quilting using multiple threads. Recommended for academic textile collections and large public libraries. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

    Great Book

    I was a little intimidated when I thumbed through this book, I must admitt. Once I got started, though I found the technique is incredible easy even for someone who has never quilted before. The projects come together fast and easy. There is even a section to teach you how to make your own patterns. The directions are clear and easy to understand.
