A New Ruler and the Awesome Results!


wpid-20150823_175846.jpgWhile camping almost 2 weekends ago now, Luanne and I ventured in to Beaver Dam to Nancy’s Notions. While the 3 yards of plain white cotton that I bought was not the most exciting…..(but necessary I am sure)  I did come across a very happy and fun purchase!

Creative Grids Corner to Corner Curve Strip Ruler


Always intrigued by a gadget, ruler, template, this had to come back to the campsite with us! In short order we had each picked out our design and fabrics that we wanted to use. For this quilt, we dug into our Collaboration Quilt Boxes and chose the desired fabrics.

Each of the designs take different amounts of the A and B cuts, so we first figured how many of each we needed from our different fabrics. Then we made our cuts and were off and running.

Here is the first one I made:wpid-20150823_175112.jpg

And because I had so much fun with it, I made another one using another design:wpid-20150823_175106-1.jpg

Please note the beautiful blue hand dyed fabric used! Luanne did that!

And perhaps Luanne will thrown in a picture of hers as well!

The directions are pretty clear, but here is a great Corner to Corner Curve Strip Ruler tutorial found on Youtube on how the cutting and piecing magic should happen.

Looking for something new? Give it a try!

Enjoy the Labor Day Weekend!
