Playing with the QCR mini
Our weather has been pretty crazy with the ice and cold and warmth the last few days. I decided to work at playing with the Quick Curve Ruler mini that I have. I wanted to make some plain drunkards path blocks and then play with layout. I decided a pillow was a great way to accomplish something. I chose colors that would work in my living room and set out to play.
I came up with many layouts but our guild is going to focus on circles and curves as we start our new year so I went with this layout.
I was not able to achieve a perfect circle with the mini ruler but I like the sort of organic feel this layout has. I added uneven logs around the edges to keep that feel.
I am going to try something similar with the regular size ruler to help with a demo I will be giving soon. The Quick Curve Ruler by SewKindofWonderful is a really easy tool to use if you want to try your hand at curve sewing. The slope of the curve make it an easy sew with no pins required. Normally I don't buy many specialty rulers but I love these as I was able to build up my confidence in curve sewing. This has helped me tremendously when I do improv curve piecing. This is not a paid ad...I just love the rulers. If you have one sitting around and have yet to try it...please give it a go. Let me know if you do.
Here are some of my other pieces using the rulers:
