Last week, I finally got down to trying the Quick Curve Ruler by Jenny Pedigo at Sew Kind of Wonderful that I purchased several months ago. I wanted to make the Metro Waves quilt and thought I could just cut out the pieces and start sewing.
From 1/2 yd, I cut out 2 strips 8 1/2" wide in each of 9 colors of Kona Solids. I LOVE Kona Solids! Then I subcut each strip into 2 1/2" curved pieces and set out to sew them together.

After watching her video on cutting and sewing, I quickly realized that her pattern must have more parts than just these curved pieces! So I ordered the pattern.

Her pattern is so well explained and has great illustrations both for cutting and sewing. BUT... I had already cut out all the fabric! What to do??

I decided to wing it and sew what I had cut and forget trying to fix my mistake. It took a lot of pinning! I'm not as brave nor as skilled as Jenny is to sew these curves without pinning. AND I didn't want to have to trim these later either so I tried to be as precise as I could.

Jenny sewed her Metro Waves strips all facing the same direction which is beautiful! I wanted the strips to be waving! I have the side borders (another beautiful Kona Solid in Indigo) to add then it'll be ready for Lolah! Have you met Lolah? You will soon!

I chose this Robert Kaufman Fusions for the backing. It's luscious!

This little quilt will measure 48"X64"... a great lap quilt!

Now time to get back to the sewing room!

  2. Great to see that you've started a blog! I love Jenny's ruler and your quilt is fantastic. Looking forward to seeing how your going to quilt it!
