"Curve It Up" Quiltalong

"Curve It Up" Quiltalong Block 1
I have a new quilty toy. 

I have also joined the  Curve It Up Quiltalong on the Sew Kind of Wonderful Blog. 

On Pinterest I saw the Urban Nine Patch Quilt that Jenny Pedigo made and it is sew gorgeous.  I started reading her blog and found many lovely quilts and patterns.  Last Friday, I found the post that had her Quick Curve Ruler on sale with free shipping and just could not resist.  I want to make an urban nine patch quilt.  My ruler arrived today very well packaged and it also included a free table runner pattern.  I sew happy!  :)

For this quiltalong my main focus fabrics are from a "Serenade" layer cake from Kate Spain.  I will be using a light gray background fabric and will pull other stash fabrics, as needed.

I watched all of Jenny's how-to videos for her ruler and followed the instructions in her block tutorial on her blog exactly and my block worked up perfectly.

I like sewing curves and found these very easy.

The ruler is used to cut the fabric and then to also square the blocks.

I am sew looking forward to the next block.

Thanks, Jenny!
