How to Sew Curved Quilt Pieces

Curved Quilt Blocks have a reputation for being difficult. But I find that if you follow all the steps it works out pretty well. Curved blocks are mostly known for being used in the Drunkard's Path Quilt. 

Today, I am going to share how to sew together curved quilting pieces.  I shared how to make the templates for these pieces in my previous blog post.
