I bought the May/June issue of Fons and Porter's Love of Quilting magazine recently because I saw a quilt with curved seams that I thought looked interesting. The magazine mentioned a "simple curves" ruler that could be used instead of the template in the magazine. I decided to keep an eye out for the ruler when I found myself in a quilt store. If you read my last post, you know that I went shopping and purchased a roll of batting for my next "few" quilting projects last week. As I was looking around the store, I noticed the ruler hanging on the wall next to the other rulers...they only had one left and I bought it! (ignore the pins in the picture...this is the back of my project after I pin basted it before quilting...)
Last night, I cut into some black and white fabrics, sewed some strips together and cut out some curvy pieces for a pillow which will be a grade 8 grad gift for one of my nieces.
The leftovers look a bit odd, but I will find some way to use them.
I have just started to quilt the pillow top but here is a picture after pin basting but before quilting.
