Chic Country Quilt

Chic Country ~ a Quick Curve Ruler pattern by Sew Kind of Wonderful...


This was my first time using the Quick Curve Ruler. I know there are probably some easier designs to start with, but I didn't think about that and chose the one with all the points to match!


And as hard as I tried - some points matched and others didn't. There is even a disclaimer in the pattern that states: "We have taken a very complicated traditional pattern and simplified the cutting/piecing, but when working with bias each block will have some variation with the pieced points." Yes, there are definitely some variations!



But once it was all together and you look at it from a distance - it looks pretty good! I couldn't be happier with the colors and fabrics in Little Ruby by Bonnie and Camille.


I considered circular quilting, but ended up with straight lines spaced 3/4" apart hoping to smoosh it all down flat.


And it worked!

  1. It looks fantastic to me, I don't see any mis-matched points from here. I'm glad to hear about another quilter's experience with this pattern because I made note of it the first time I saw it. I have the ruler but found it rather difficult and tricky with the little project I made to try it out and the end result did not lie flat. I think I need a bit more practice, and should just tackle another quilt with it, having extra fabric on hand in case any of the blocks are rejects.

  8. Beautiful arrangement of the fabric in the top; especially the red as it keeps your eye moving across the quilt top.

  15. really so beautiful! And the quilting works so well on it. I have a "circular" quilting I've been struggling trying to figure out how to quilt, I may totally do straight lines now. :)

  26. It's amazing. Everything looks perfectly matched to me. I have the ruler but have not picked a pattern yet to use with it.

  27. It looks gorgeous, and I can't see any mismatched or cut off points. That's very encouraging. How far off were your points from the spots on the ruler they were suppose to meet when squaring up? I've cut up a heaping pile of fabric to make one for my daughter, and I'm having a terrible time trimming up my blocks. I fear no two points will be even close to meeting where they should! Any advice you can share would be greatly appreciated!

  28. I love this! I've had the ruler for awhile now (don't even remember what prompted me to buy it), but this quilt inspired me to get the pattern. Not sure when I'll start it, but I have this post saved as a favorite for when I do!
