Hi I’m Kelly and I blog at Kelby Sews. May I present to you my LOL Quick Curve Ruler project.
This ruler was so amazingly easy to work with. After two practice curves I had it. Here is the main thing you need to know about this ruler: YOU DON’T HAVE TO PIN OR CLIP CURVES. Hello! Praise the quilting goddess I don’t have to spend a million years pinning and cutting to achieve a pieced curve project. The cutting went lightning fast too. Love it. I can’t wait to try out some of the great pattern’s Jenny created just for her ruler. I especially love the Urban Beads.
This was not at all what I had planned on making, but when I showed my husband my first project with the Quick Curve Ruler he, very diplomatically, ignored what was in front of him and suggested I make an emoticon quilt. DUH! I should have asked him BEFORE I made that other project. Trust me, you don’t want to see the other project, it was hopeless. The problem was that I wasn’t staying true to my style. I love bright, colorful, and fun. Thankfully my hubby (and a few Flickr friends) encouraged me to start fresh.
I really wish I had the time to make a full size quilt because I could just see an entire quilt made from all the different emoticon expressions. How perfect would that be for a teenager or that friend who is always texting? I simply pieced 4 curves with different colored border pieces then appliqued the eyes and eyebrows. This mini measures about 22.5″ square.
