This block was made with the quick curve ruler from Jenny @ Sew Kind of Wonderful. She has designed the ruler and also many patterns to go along with them- more like sew kind of clever! Check out her blog too, she has lots of neat tutorials and free patterns. She just completed a Double Wedding Ring that I can't wait to try.
You can do so many configurations with this easy light/dark block. I went with the one on the right. I made it scrappy because, frankly, I wasn't sure I would be able to make the curved seam. It looks very intimidating. I purchased the ruler over a year ago and never did anything with it.
Anyway, I dug through my scraps because I didn't want to mess up any "good" fabric. Then once it turned out OK, I didn't want to toss any good curvy blocks, so I used them all. I think it turned out really nice.
Here are some close-ups of the quilting. I just backed it with flannel and didn't use batting and quilted about 1/2 inch from the seams.
It looks like window panes on the back.
I love this red binding- came from Wal-mart on clearance- and also got it in pink, cheddar and lime.
Thanks for stopping by!
