Bee Challenge Reveal


Every once in a while, my quilt bee decides we need a challenge. How about we use the Quick Curve Ruler to make something? My quilt wasn’t much of a reveal because I started making it at one of our retreats, but I like the way it turned out and I had fun using the ruler to make the blocks. 


Sew Kind of Wonderful also makes a special ruler for use on a longarm quilting machine and I used it to stitch in the ditch and echo pretty accurately. 


Andra loved the Quick Curve Ruler so much she did two! I always love her fabric choices. 


Lucky me, I got to longarm quilt this top.


Love the texture on the back. 


Who could resist this cute pattern using the small QCR? Not Andra who loves Halloween! She has seasonal decorations, even dishes, for the scary holiday, not to mention numerous quilts. Hey Andra, how many pumpkin quilts do you have?


Sadly, I have no pumpkin quilts. But I did have fun quilting Andra’s tops.


I couldn’t resist adding a little jack-o-lantern.


Susie decided to go Modern. This quilt is going to look great in her house with the gray and pops of hot pink. She gets so busy quilting for her customers, her own tops are at the bottom of the stack. Check out Quilts on Wawaset


I love a challenge with One Rule. 1. Make something using the Quick Curve Ruler. Michele made this elegant bag and of course, we all wanted it. The Sometimes We Do Quilt Bee does not lack in creativity. 


Joan made a table runner. Even the back is beautiful but darn, I didn’t get a picture. That little red star just makes me smile.


Great minds think alike, Karen couldn’t resist the pumpkins either. She also made a quilt using the larger QCR, but didn’t bring it. I’m in love with the lime green binding. 


Look at Karen’s quilting! It’s hard to believe she’s only had her longarm machine for a few months.


Peggy told us she was making a mug rug. Hah! I’m hoping we’re all invited to tea.  I was betting on pumpkins or Christmas trees because Peggy and her husband Don, own Don’s Tree Farm, the best-ever place to get mums, pumpkins, Christmas trees– all kinds of seasonal fun. Hey Peggy, how many Christmas tree quilts do you have?

Ginger’s quilt has a Modern look to match her brand new kitchen. She was hostess so we could all see how gorgeous everything turned out. Oh, she also served us apple crisp to die for. Must be the new oven–delicious.


Want to see Jane’s quilt? You might have to go to her website because I might have been gobbeling the apple crisp…

We had such a blast at our Quick Curve Ruler Challenge reveal. We’re already planning a challenge for next year. It could have something to do with Kaffe Fasset fabrics. That would be colorful and fun. I’m in!
