Ohhh baby ... curve it up

There are so many awesome projects or blocks that I see in my quilting circles, through blogs and flickr.
I am in constant awe of how cool these people are!

Melissa of Sew Bittersweet Designs is one on my many muses.

She posted this block waaaaay back in August.

I immediately went to the tutorial over at Sew Kind of Wonderful and ohh-ed and awww-ed.

It was only a matter of time really. 

It took me a whole 2 days before I broke down and bought the ruler from Jenny. 

This awesome Quick Curved Ruler was instantly shipped and arrived at my doorstep.

Totally worth it! 

This is my first block


Strip Quilting Curved foundation block

Seriously this is my FIRST block!

Go check out Jenny's videos for sewing these curves.

And there is a flickr group of uber talented ladies that use this ruler found here.

I put this block in my foundation stripper row . . .
