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!
