Playing with the Quick Curve Ruler

I’ve had this ruler for at least five years. I finally decided it was time to play with it a bit.

Here are my cut pieces. Cutting was easy.

Sewing the curves takes a little practice.

Yikes!

They look better after pressing!

After pressing, you use the ruler again to square up the blocks. Then it’s time to play.

Have a great day!

    I need to use mine, too. Made a pillow and then put it away.

    They look great. Can’t wait to see what they turn into.

    Thanks for the inspiration to finally use this ruler–I too have had this just sitting here with a quilt kit to work on—maybe soon!

    Hi Katy! Didn’t you find it amazing that you didn’t need to clip the curves for the fabric to lay flat? Very nice block! ~smile~ Roseanne

  5. I’ve looked at that ruler and passed it by a few times now. This is not helping – LOL. What fun blocks! I could make a bigger version of my Mod Peels (or you could!). Good thing I have no time for shopping today. Haha! Can’t wait to see what you create, Katy!

    I’ve been thinking of getting one of these too. Sewkindofwonderful has a bunch of new patterns out that are intriguing. Sewing curves, that are smooth, takes a lot of practice, you seem to have it down pat. Lucky!

    I have this ruler too. Only used it once to make a table runner. Your curves look very neat. There must be lots of different ways to use the ruler to create unusual looking blocks. I wonder what would happen if a block were cut in half across the centre – time to explore our inner modern quilter? 😀
