Today we will finish our curves adventure with a tutorial by Emily Cier which she calls, "Curved Piecing Tutorial: The I-have-way-too-many-quilts-to-make-and-too-many-deadlines-and-have-no-time-to-pin-because-I-need-these-done-yesterday Method"

Emily from Carolina Patchworks is the brilliant designer behind the Groove quilt and is literally a curve master after sewing a TON of curves for her quilts. I want to thank Emily for taking the time to prepare this tutorial for us Groovy Quilters. Before you head over to Carolina Patchworks, we have a groovy giveaway!
