To Ruler or Not To Ruler That is the Question
A blogger friend decided to sell off some of her rulers, and I raised my hand. Nanette from Chopin – A Passionate Quilter sent me two circular rulers, and I had plans. Big plans. Will the desire to ruler actually work? That is the question, and when you get a new toy you want to use it!
Wish On a Ruler
I have wanted a circular ruler for a Baptist Fan quilting pattern, and Nanette’s set of increasing sizes are perfect. Not necessarily for Cind-erella but rather a someday-soon type of project. Perhaps the 3″ side of the ruler would assist with a perfect looking orange peel design? Alas, no. The curvature of the ruler is too wide – the stitching would touch the opposite side of the half-square triangle.
Better Than a Ruler?
I poked around on Pinterest, looking for a video to show me some swirly flowers like a daisy. The swirl quilting pattern is in my wheelhouse and it wouldn’t be too difficult to add some daisy petals around it. Throw in a few leaves and boom – done.
The quilting of Cind-erella has begun! A quilting pattern too dense will make it too stiff for a sweet baby girl, so I’m trying to keep it loose.
