Urban Flower Garden - a Quick Curve Ruler Quilt

Have you tried the Quick Curve Ruler by Sew Kind of Wonderful? It's pretty awesome. An easy curve that doesn't require pinning to sew (bonus!) and has lots of wonderful patterns available. I'm pretty floored by all the wonderful shapes and designs that can be created with this one template. This is my second quilt created with this ruler and one of their patterns.  The first was a baby quilt you can see here.

The pattern is called Urban Candy. I called this quilt Urban Flower Garden because I quilted graffiti style flowers into all the double loops and lattice cross hatching in the single loops.

It was a fun way to learn and practice new flower motifs. I totally enjoyed it. Here's a quick video I shot just after I took it off the frame.

I used my Michael Miller Clay as background cuz I love a good grey modern quilt. The other fabrics are just pulled from my stash - a couple of solids, a few batiks, and a pink grunge which beat out the options of black and grey for the binding.

The quilt is on the small side - 58x81.  So it will live on a couch back instead of a bed. But I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. I've got another QCR pattern in my studio that is completely different. Can't wait to tackle that one!

P.S. As always - props to my rarely seen quilt holders. In this case, my oldest son.
