Now that you’ve fallen for curved piecing with your Classic Curves Ruler, I have a brand new quilt you are going to love! Indigo is the newest design for the CCRuler and I couldn’t be happier to show you these beautiful quilts.
If you have a pack of 10″ squares (“layer cake”) you have been saving for the perfect quilt, you have found it! Indigo is ideal for 10″ squares to show off those favorite prints, but the classic design would look amazing in any type of fabric. I would love to see one in batiks or 30’s reproductions (-:
I made the sample on the cover with prints from Art Gallery Fabrics, with the focus and initial inspiration coming from the new “Soulful” collection by Maureen Cracknell. These pretty prints look great with BariJ’s Sage collection from last year, so I added some of those, plus others, too. You know I can’t resist using as many pretty fabrics as possible! Quilting by Darby Myers of Quilted Squid, thread from Aurifil and batting is Hobbs Heirloom cotton blend.
The original, smaller version of Indigo in blue and white was actually one of the very first quilts I made when I was developing the Classic Curves Ruler. I wanted to try a variety of sizes, so these curves are just 4 1/2″, but totally do-able and totally adorable! The Blue and White version was made almost entirely with one Layer Cake (42 10″ squares) from Moda Fabrics. I like the tone-on-tone look of this one.
I hope you’ll give Indigo a try! I think you’ll enjoy playing with color, print, and value to make this design all your own.
