A New Spin on Curved Piecing

Quilts with curved piecing just scream at me to make them, so when I saw A New Spin on Curved Piecing by Joyce Lawrence Cambron at the library, I had to bring it home. There are some gorgeous patterns in this book!

The patterns don't use the type of curved piecing that I know how to do. Instead, the author has developed a technique using freezer paper and glue. I haven't tried it myself yet, but some of these projects are so gorgeous I might have to. Those round centers on the projects pictured above -- they're pieced into the backgrounds. I can't tell you how much I love that!

There are seven projects in the book, including a pretty scalloped placemat that serves as a practice lesson. It's the kind of book I'd buy just so I could learn the technique, thinking of the purchase price as kind of a class fee.
