'QUICK CURVE' LAP QUILT


After seeing the fun designs by Jenny at Sew Kind of Wonderful that she creates with her Quick Curve ruler, I knew I just had to purchase one (besides...I love gadgets!). The ruler comes with instructions for a table runner, however, I wanted to play around with the blocks I made and came up with this...I turned what was to be a table runner into a lap quilt.  I used Thimbleberries Christmas fabric I purchased on clearance at one of my LQS...of course, not knowing what I was going to create with it, needed to order some more of the gold fabric online to use for backing...and can't wait for it to arrive so I can finish this project. The ruler was fun and very easy to use (thanks to the great instructions included, as well as video tutorials on Jenny's site). If you want to try adding curved blocks to your projects, this is definitely the way to go!!! Thank you Jenny for designing this great 'gadget'!!!
