This is the last week of the May is for Makers campaign and I have loved every minute of it! This has allowed me to put some intention into my pattern purchasing instead of my usual impulsive shopping.
To end the campaign, I decided to go with something that will push me out of my comfort zone: curves! I can't remember when or why I purchased it, but a little while ago, I bought a Quick Curve Ruler from Sew Kind of Wonderful and have yet to use it on anything... What can I say? Curves scare me a little. :-)
I bit the bullet this week with my #mayisformakers purchase and purchase Urban Chained from Sew Kind of Wonderful.
I'm thinking I might have to practice with some of my unloved fabric before cutting into my more precious fat quarters though.
And just for fun, here's a recap of all my purchases this month:
|Week 1: Broken Frames by Cheryl Brickley of Meadow Mist Designs|
|Week 2: Gathered Clutch by Noodlehead|
|Week 3: Tokyo Subway Map by Elizabeth Hartman|
|Week 4: Heading South by Material Girl Quilts|
|Week 5: Urban Chained by Sew Kind of Wonderful|
I was afraid of curves, too and the QCR changed my life! I began with the table runner pattern that comes with the ruler. Now I've made six or more projects and am obsessed! Go for it!ReplyDelete
I have the ruler too and have yet to try it. I think I have a pattern somewhere too...One of these days! I missed seeing you bought the Subway Map pattern - I've always like that quilt!ReplyDelete
