We recently featured quilter Angela Pingel from Cut to Pieces in our My Favorite Quilt series. Angela has a new book out, all about sewing curved blocks. A Quilter’s Mixology (Interweave / F+W) gives you the basics of curved piecing plus tons of projects so you can master curves as you create!

Angela created a video for Sew Mama Sew readers to share some great tips for sewing curved blocks. Check it out, then get your copy of A Quilter’s Mixology for more from Angela!

Hi All! I’m Angela Pingel from Cut to Pieces and I’m excited to share with you a new video (my first one in fact!) on sewing curved blocks. My book, A Quilter’s Mixology just came out and it’s all about sewing with curved blocks. These are a basic staple in any quilter’s arsenal of blocks but a lot of people are afraid of them. I walk you step by step through sewing the blocks using my one pin method, pressing the blocks, trimming the blocks and finally a special type of seam that creates a disappearing seam with two blocks. Using this method you can create any of the blocks in my book and then some! I love making a video version of my instructions (though they are clearly laid out in the book as well) because I know we all learn a bit differently. I tried to take my time with the video giving you a couple of chances to see the techniques and set you up for success. I hope you find it helpful!

And thank you to Sew Mama Sew for having me here today! Another first as well, I think!

    Thank you so much for the tut. It was straight forward and right to the point. I’ve been quilting probably since before you were born. It just goes to show you that you learn something new every day.
