I was definitely the gadget girl during this show. And for what ever reason… curves really spoke to me. I could easily called this post… Going round in Circles.
I finally purchased a ‘Curve Master Foot’ from Just Curves after watching the creator Sandra Chandler do the demo at the show. If it is as easy as it looks… it will open a whole new world of quilting for me. I’ve done some easy wavy curves where the blocks don’t have to match up – but nothing that required any accuracy. Apparently, secure in my soon to be curve sewing talents, I also picked up the Just Curves small Drunkard’s Path Template set (I love Drunkard’s Path quilts). That purchase was followed by a bottle template from One-Patch Quilts – one of Pat Yamin's Come Quilt With Me templates. By the way – Pat is a lovely lady and I’ve always enjoyed chatting with her when I’ve seen her at the Nashua show in years past – so I was happy to see her here. I finally found the Perfect Circles by Karen Kay Buckley (now I can finish that machine appliqué I’ve been working on – like that was the only thing holding me up… ha!) and I picked up an OLFA Circle cutter. Since that didn’t quite seem like enough circle making capabilities for any sane person… I also picked up a ruler for drawing circles… because the compass I have only opens so far.
Also pictured above are the tools that came with the Curve Master… a roller and a pair of tweezers. I picked up a small clip on LED light (clipped to the Curve Master Package) and (just in case it takes me a few tries to become an expert) a surgical seam ripper that you can change the blades on. Knowing me and knives that should be good for a trip to an emergency room at some point in the future… it has been awhile since I’ve needed stitches for some self inflected wound… LOL
Part 3 later… yeah I was that bad!
