I saw the Quick Curve ruler at a quilt show a few years ago when it was brand new. I almost bought it, but then worried that it was a "one quilt ruler", the kind that looks really neat until you figure out that every quilt you make with it looks the same. The samples in the booth were all pretty similar, so I passed. However, there are now oodles of pretty patterns that prove the ruler can be used in many different ways. Check out Sew Kind of Wonderful for eye candy.
This block is one of their free patterns. Except for the trimming on my first unit (which eventually resulted in that seam that doesn't even come close to matching), I didn't have any trouble with the directions and everything came together smoothly. I did press my seams differently in a few spots and will continue experimenting with that to get as many seams to nest as possible. I really, really like it when seams nest!
Now, returning to the list, I will go enjoy some quiet hand quilting. Only two sides of the outermost border left to finish. If I can avoid more distractions like tonight's, I might have the kaleidoscope quilt quilted and bound in the next couple of weeks.
