Chic Kisses Mini Quilt
In November I had the opportunity to test the Chic Kisses pattern for Sew Kind of Wonderful. This pattern uses the Quick Curve Ruler, which I had been curious about but hadn’t used. I’ve sewn a few curves with success and wanted to give it a try. I ordered the ruler and ended up choosing fabrics in a traditional Christmas color scheme.
Having never used the Quick Curve Ruler before, I worried that I’d mess things up because this is a more complicated pattern. To my relief I found it easy to follow and my first four blocks came together quickly and painlessly. I stopped at four blocks to make one ring and decided on a mini quilt.
The quilting Jenny does on her quilts amazes me. I could stare at it for hours. I had her work in mind as I quilted this little thing. It was good practice for me – full of mistakes – and I tried something new.
This quilt pattern is really amazing. I’ve got a bundle of fabrics I’m going to use to make a big Chic Kisses quilt. I just need to decide on solids. If you’re considering the QCR or any of the Sew Kind of Wonderful patterns, I recommend them! It’s a lot of fun!
My chic kisses mini hung in the living room during the holiday season and I enjoyed seeing it there. It was great to have the chance to test the pattern and learn a new technique. Today it’s all packed away and the year ends tonight. It’s been a good year and we’ve been very blessed, but I’m excited for a new year and all it will hold.
