Has anyone used the Curve Master quilting foot? It looks as if it would be a great tool!

I have that foot, never took it out of its plastic box. Hmm maybe I should give it a try and see what happens.

May I ask how much this "must have" treasure costs? :bg: I admit that I'm a real sucker for presser feet that are supposed to make your quilting life much more simple and easier. However, with my Pfaff 2044 I've had to work at curbing my wants as the feet for the little beauty are $20 and up (more up than anything else). DH bought me the new 1/4 inch foot and the free motion foot for our anniversary along with a trip to Hancock's-Paducah and a new Olfa ergonomic 45 mm rotary cutter and 45mm and 60 mm blades. Now, the only thing I need to talk him into is a new mat for my Alto Quiltcut.

Haven't tried it yet, but it's first on my wish list. Reasonable price, too. 29.99? I think that was it. My girlfriend has one, but she hasn't tried it yet either.

Bayside Quilting has them for $29. I understand that they are great for maintaining a scant 1/4" seam, and also sewing curved seams without having to pin. I made a Wheel of Fortune (also has other names) wall hanging and I was so full of pinholes. If I weaken and buy this foot and it works as they say, the wall hanging may turn into a quilt. :up:

Saw the CurveMaster demo on The Quilting Channel. Looks great! but a little pricey for me, so I experimented with a couple of the feet I have for my old Viking. I found an old plastic foot, no idea what it's for, but it's pretty short in the front. Following the instructions for the CurveMaster and holding the top fabric up and feeding it in, I managed to make a pretty good Drunkard's Path square! Didn't have to pin it either.
Don't worry about the world coming to an end today. It's already tomorrow in Australia.
