Finally, a day off

It's Sunday, July 22 and I finally have a day off.  I promised myself a full day of doing what I want and not going into the store.  So here I am in my sewing room that my wonderful husband built for me sewing what I want and enjoy being home.

If you are like me you have many projects on the go at one time.  Presently, I have four.  Today I am going to show you one of them because I'm so excited about it. 

I wanted to do another quilt using the Quick Curve Ruler by Sew Kind of Wonderful.  Jenny (of Sew Kind of Wonderful) has lots of patterns to choose from using her ruler, and I have had my eye on Urban Birthday for a while.  I have also had my eye on a fabric line called "Pretty Little Things" by Free Spirit.  This fabric and the Quick Curve Ruler can be found on our website

The first thing to be done was cut 9 inch strips from about eleven fabrics (this pattern is also layer cake friendly).  Then cut again into 9 x 10 inch rectangles.  Then you do the same for your background colour.

So here is what I have so far and today I intend to sew, sew sew ...

If you like what you see here, you can get more information from Jenny's blog.  There is a tutorial on how to use her ruler ....

Here is the link directly to her tutorial


  1. That's going to be beautiful, your fabrics are so pretty and perfect for that pattern!!

  2. I have been wanting to try this ruler!--she really does have cute patterns.
