Metro Hoops Pattern By Sew Kind Of Wonderful

I had the wonderful opportunity to test a pattern for Jenny@ Sew Kind Of Wonderful. She & Helen invented the Quick Curve Ruler(QCR) and they have many amazing modern patterns using the QCR.

Here is my Metro Hoops quilt. It was really fun to make. In the last year or so I have used few patterns but I had to always make them simplified for piecing. But with Jenny & Helen's Metro hoops pattern I didn't have to modify a single thing. Everything was so well thought out and piecing was so much more fun. Also there were few squares up to allow room for errors. So, this works for any one from beginner to advanced quilter.

Here is the picture of the block itself:

Here are couple of pictures of the Quilt top. Saturday after my daughter's piano recital I quickly went out to get few pictures of the quilt top.

I know I have been blogging a lot lately but have been sewing a lot between Metro Hoops Quilt and "Quilts for Boston".

The quilt turned out to be more low-volume when it comes to the Hoops. I am hoping to make it pop by using right FMQ. Hmmm Decisions Decisions....

Happy Quilting!

  1. Just lovely. I bought that ruler over a year ago and have yet to use it. I might just have to dig in sometime soon and use it.
