Weekend quilting

Prem and I will be doing curved piecing tomorrow as demonstrated in a video by Alicia Merret on youtube. I tried the method and it works. It is similar to the technique glenda showed us at Eston.
Here is the link to this video:http://youtu.be/HUQ38BOAJMH
Enjoy watching this video, I did.
