 It's always fun to try out a tool tool!  I found this handy "Curve Master" machine foot at the Puyuallup sewing show in the spring.  It makes it super easy to do those dreaded curved pieced blocks that everyone loves so much right now!  It has adaptors that make it work for just about any machine you might have in your sewing room.  It worked perfectly without any adapters on my Viking Designer SE.  My project of the week is a great whirly gig block from Kaffee Fassett. 
 505 pieces cut for three different sets of blocks that will give me a finished 96" X 96" finished quilt.  The blocks will be 10" finished, then I will add sashing and a wonderful border.  The fabric collection is  Blossom by Urban Chics. 
I have 24 blocks of the 36 finished and ready for the circular center applique.  This will be a slower part of the process.  Now I need to gather the outside of the circles and pull that in to fit the cardboard template, then  I can press the perfect seam allowance of each circle before it is appliqued!  I think the finished result will be well worth the time!
