add a dash of lime

Remember when I told you about receiving a new ruler from America? Well this is what I made:


The ruler is from Jenny at Sew Kinda Wonderful.She has several different patterns you can make using the ruler. The ruler is a very cunning tool. First you use it to cut fabric, then after sewing a block it becomes a straighten up and trim tool. Very clever! The curves are not too difficult to sew once you get the idea. How Jenny thought this all out I will never know – my head hurts just thinking about it! Jenny has excellent videos on her site to help you through the process.

The pattern I have used is Urban Pods. I love the way the blocks flip over half way down the quilt and create that row of curved diamond shapes.


The curved border is just a little add on of mine. A nice opportunity to add some piano key stitching.


Some modern quilting:


Don’t you just love the texture?


Next up for me will be the Urban Birthday quilt. I have the fabric already.

Thanks Jenny for sharing your creativity with us. As you can see I love my quilt so much it has become my new banner!

Thanks for popping by


  1. Beautiful all the way around. I love the colors, and your quilting totally takes it over the top.

  2. I love it Linda - so fresh and modern - the great curved edge finishes it beautifully. You are rapidly converting me to long arm quilting.........

  3. Wow - that's some quilt with all those curves, and your quilting makes it even more wonderful.

  4. Beautiful quilt and the quilting adds so much texture! I like your scalloped edges in white. Woohoo! Don't you just love to celebrate when you've finished something you already know will be a favorite.
