Curves, Curves, and More Curves

The three sisters of Sew Kind of Wonderful are simply amazing! Their latest book, due to arrive next month, features 16 projects – and I want to make them all!

Just look at the variety of projects – all based on the same curved block. The book includes detailed instructions showing how to cut, sew, and press the blocks to create perfection! Just check these out:

Every project uses the mini curve tool:

They even have a long arming tool so you can recreate their exquisite machine quilting! This would be a great class!

Sew Kind of Wonderful – Always a Class Act

I love the gals from Sew Kind of Wonderful!  They represent the best of our industry – and if you have ever met them, they ARE as kind, honest, and gracious as they seem.  In this day and age, it is refreshing to experience true class.  I got to see their booth at Market and it was simply darling!  Their new patterns are absolutely amazing.

Who would have thought that their Quick Curve Ruler and the Mini Quick Curve Ruler could produce such charming patterns?

Urbanalogie features the mini as well and would make a great series of classes.  All of the featured blocks can be combined to make the stunning cover quilt or can stand alone.

Their patterns are the perfect introduction to curves.  They are so gentle that your students won’t even realize they are sewing curves until they see the stunning results!

And it all began with this simple tool…

A New Talent Crosses Generations

It isn’t often that I am totally enamored by a new designer – but that is the case with Jenny Pedigo of Sew Kind of Wonderful!  Her quilts encompass all of the features showcased in this age of the “Modern Quilt” – large prints, solid colors, undefined blocks, movement, and larger pieces.  But the traditionalist in me is drawn to them because there is some “oomph” to these projects!  They are constructed with a new curved ruler which creates symmetrical curves – which fulfills my need for balance – and is a learning opportunity!  AND, my 24 year old daughter loves them as much as I do.

Item #SKW100  Retail $22.00
