THE CURVES HAVE IT!

I am talking about curves made with the Quick Curve Ruler
or in this project...The Mini QCR1

I selected some of my hoarded Flea Market Fancy
with Cotton and Steel to make a table runner
I can use any season!



I worked on it last winter while staying in 
  Ocean Isle Beach, NC..with this view...
I am lucky it was ever sewn! 


Alas..I regress...Back to the project!

Sew Kinda Wonderful has a way of writing
patterns using diagrams that make using her rulers
easy and sewing the curves is a piece of cake!
Just pay close attentions to what registration lines
you are to use!


They trim up easily using ruler guides as well
and away ya go!



It's like a fun puzzle laying out the pieces
for the tree blocks.


one at a time..


 Sew them up and its ready to quilt!


I used an off white for the binding.


The backing is FMF with some Carolyn Friedlander
inserted to make it just the right size and reversible.



And luv it on my dining room table! 



What's your favorite project with CURVES?

  2. Great table runner. I have a QCR and love it. I have a little help though I have the sewing machine foot for sewing curves so no pinning.
