This quilt pattern was drafted by me following tutorial on Sew Kind of Wonderful “Curved Nine Patch”.
I have adjusted block making steps to my way to increase productivity. Nine patch blocks were made using strip piecing, cut in to blocks, press, and chain piecing technique.
I decided to give lots of negative space in between curved nine patches so quilting line will pop.
This is one of the sketches.
I have written down cutting instructions on the notebook.
Sewn and pressed block on the left. Trimmed at 8 inches size squared block on the right.
Two-Colour Quilts have very sweet spot in my heart. I love how stitching of hand quilt pops on the solid color surface.
This image inspired me to combine Sew Kind of Wonderful Ruler use and simple vintage quilt block revival.
If you are interested in knowing what book I found those pictures, here’s the cover. I found this book at the used book store.
Here is my quick sketch. I don’t have solid red in my stash currently. I need to either shop solid red or make this in another color combination.
I use Fiskars Rotary Cutter and Cutting Mat. It’s interesting to find out one mat leaves lots of marks while the another mat leaves almost no track using the same rotary cutter.
You have no idea how excited I was the moment I found a hand quilt thread that is on wooden spool!
1000 yards is now offered for $7.95 on the website I put a link above.
Robert Kaufman Fabrics’s website carries variety of patterns. It is easy to direct and their extensive selection satisfies me. Since I’m having trouble putting hyper link, I will copy the entire address below. It will direct you to the page I mentioned above.
For guys, I would go for a design like this.
