I consider myself a fairly seasoned quilter but I've always had something that leaves me frustrated. Is there a trick to doing SID(stitch in the ditch) on curves? My current quilt has huge circles and really needs it. I've tried all my arc rulers and circle templates but nothing fits these curves. Any suggestions?? Thanks a bunch!! Tammy

Keep using your arc templates but realize that you'll need to make minute adjustments as you stitch. Even with an arc that perfectly matches the curve, slight differences in the piecing mean you'll need to go slowly and change the angle of the template quite a bit. But one nice thing is you have two sides you can use so you can avoid having to hold them behind the hopping foot. SIDing curves is a pain!   ;)
