This is the first of some tutorials I want to post to go with the Classic Curves Ruler. This will give you an idea how it works and provide some up-close, photo instructions to accompany your ruler. These instructions are included with the Ruler when you purchase one, too. The CCRuler has slots that allow you to cut ten sizes of your favorite curved piecing shapes.

How About a Picnic This Summer?

Summer has officially arrived in our house. The kids are out of school, we've been on our bikes and they have gotten out the water balloons. Another exciting arrival: the brand new Picnic quilt pattern! This is the second full pattern available to accompany the Classic Curves Ruler. Picnic introduces a new shape for the CCR, and one of my all time favorites: the orange peel. I don't know why I love this block so much, but I think they are really fun to make and experiment with layouts and additions. I have two other patterns using this shape: Whimsy...

Announcing My Biggest Project Ever!

It's finally here! The much anticipated big project I have been working on for several months: The Classic Curves Ruler. You know I love curved piecing in quilting and I have a drawer overflowing with templates to prove it. Last year I had an idea to make a tool that would simplify the cutting  for curved piecing. I wanted a tool that would allow me to throw out all those templates and not make any more! The Classic Curves Ruler is my first product release that is not a quilt pattern, and I couldn't be happier to share it with...
