Quick Curve Ruler tutorial


Have you heard of the Quick Curve Ruler?  It’s a pretty fun tool that makes cutting and sewing curves a breeze.  No really! 

Quick Curve Ruler tutorial

I recently wrote a tutorial about the Quick Curve Ruler for the Fabric Mill’s Blog – you can find it here.

The tutorial gives you an idea of how the curves are cut (you can use a regular sized rotary cutter!) and pieced (no special presser foot needed!). 

I’ve heard from several people that they own the ruler but have been afraid to try it.  Well, my friends, it’s time!  My advice to you, is to just get the ruler out and make a couple of test blocks.  Don’t be afraid!

The pattern I made is called “Urban Runner” and it is included with the ruler.  The pattern is actually written on the back and inside of the ruler’s label.  Making a table runner is a great way to get the hang of the ruler – consider it a warm-up.  By the time I finished the runner I felt like I was confident enough to tackle any of the many other patterns that are written for the QCR (Quick Curve Ruler) and there’s so many!!  There are even some free ones available here

Go and check out the tutorial, and you can also find very helpful videos here.  Let me know if you have questions about the ruler, or the tutorial.  Now go and break out that ruler and give it a try!
