Testing Curve Master Foot...

Last week at the show I bought this new tool... the lady that designed it was here from the States doing a demo on it. It looked so easy to use, I've always want to do a Drunkards Path quilt, so I thought I would give this a go...

Here are my little test pieces...I must say, I'm very impressed with it...no pinning, no marking, no clipping seams...it can also be used to sew straight 1/4 inch seams perfectly....great!
I even tried it on a couple of apple cores....just think, if I do another apple core quilt, how easy it would be. It comes with different size detachable shanks so that it could be used on most sewing machines...you can read a bit more about it here..
Happy sewing....♥

  7. Wow,I bought one of those some years ago and never took it out of the package. I wonder where the heck I put it? Well, sounds like you've inspired me to clean my sewing room. Karmen

  9. I saw that foot demo'd last year and I took her card so I could remember to go back to the booth and yet, I completely forgot!!
    I just found the card this weekend while I was looking through some books and then today you post the review. What a coincidence!

  10. Terrific curves. I watched that demo last year and again this year but was too afraid to buy one. Fear of failure strikes deep!

  11. Thanks for the test report, Julia. I have read about it in an Australian suppliers newsletter and wondered how good it would be. It's not cheap, so I haven't been game to buy it. I'll put it on my wish list now. :)

  12. It is a great help for sewing curves. My friends are also happy with it. I had one but it would not fit on my Bernina. No matter what we tried it just would not work. All other Bernina owners were happy with it so I am still puzzled why my machine did not accept it. Anyway I sold it in the end and bought a Bernina foot that works almost the same.

  15. For a rank beginner, I do things the hard way.. I did a Drunkards Path block in my patchwork class last year - hand stitched. Didn't know there was any other way to do it!
    Julia, you might be able to help me - my Singer Hushmatic is nearly 50 years old and only does straight and zig zag stitches, which I'm happy with. When I used it for my little quilt, the fabric puckered in places, and someone told me I should have used a quilting foot on my machine. Is my old Singer too old to take these special attachments?

  16. I bought one of those gadgets a few years ago and didn't seem to get it to work properly at all. Now I have seen what a good job you have done it might be time to reaquaint myself with it and have another go.

  18. Hi Julia,
