Hooping it!

What better way to start summer than a sew-along with friends?  When Nicole and Thelma asked me to join them in making a quilt using the Quick Curve Ruler, I quickly signed on!  I've had the QCR for quite some time, but this was the final motivation I needed to get started.  I choose to make the Metro Hoops pattern and started pulling fabric.

I started with the Iris palette of Violet Craft's Waterfront Park collection, and added in some additional fabrics from my stash.

I made a test block (with scrap fabrics!  These are not my corners!)

Start your engines, girls!  I'm ready to go.  Please stop in at Cupcakes 'n Daisies and Sister's Choice Quilts to see what Thelma and Nicole are planning!


  1. Perfect voice of fabrics ! Looking forward to watching your progress on this quilt :-D

  2. Now I think I like your pattern better than the one I chose! Your block is very cool.
