Quick Curve Ruler

After seeing some great quilts around, added to my love of a "gadget", I bought myself a Quick Curve Ruler. I've been having a play with a layer cake and a pattern called Urban Birthday, and these are a few of the blocks layed out. (does anyone else have to take a picture of their layout in case little people suddenly run through the middle??!)
And here they are sewn up......
It probably needs a border of some sort but I will contemplate that for a while. The curves were quite easy to sew and the squaring up of the blocks help it all come together, though I must say that getting the lines to meet up between the blocks was quite a challenge.(for me, anyway..maybe for the less slapdash personality it would have been fine!) But the block I really want to try with my new ruler is here. I think that looks amazing! Hope you're having a good week!


  1. I always photograph my layout - children, the dog, a gentle breeze, all sorts of things can happen! That's a really interesting block, and it looks good put together with the white background.

  2. Wow, I am amazed by your quilt! It looks so impressive with all those curved seams. It has come together beautifully.

  3. Amazing effect from using that ruler!
