Earlier this spring I was the lucky winner of these Quick Curve Ruler blocks from Jenny Pedigo at Sew Kind of Wonderful. Thirty happy and perfectly pieced nine inch blocks!
Jenny made the blocks then decided she didn't want them, that was my lucky day. I thought it would be fun if I added some blocks pieced by me to the blocks pieced by Jenny.
I thought maybe the same block, only in reverse fabric order, would be a nice change of pace. But after I made my block I decided I didn't like my idea.
Then I thought maybe just some plain blocks in-between the pieced blocks would be nice, I didn't like that idea either.
So then I thought I would just sew them together, and I liked this setting,
but decided I liked this one better.
Then I decided some sashing, the same width as the curved pieced blocks, would add just the right touch. A friend suggested the cornerstones for the circle intersections only, which was a great idea, I think it creates a new block, made up of 4 curved blocks.
And now it's done, and I love it!
This is Lifetime Quilt Number 137
I've named it Roundabout
It finished at 65" x 65"
The fabric is Treasures and Tidbits by Piece O'Cake Designs.
It has approximately 245 pieces.
Jenny made these blocks from a layer cake. She's going to be adding the instructions to piece these blocks to her blog in July as a freebie! So pick out a layer cake and get ready to piece your own Roundabout. I"ll be sure to let you know when Jenny has posted the block directions.
