Metro Waves - Ta-Da!


Yes, I turned this pile of curved pieces of fabric...



...into this quilt top.  (It is hanging a little wonkily from the clips on the rod but I assure you, it looks better in person.)  It is 36" by 50".  I still need a name.

 
How about a close-up?  After a better pressing and, of course, quilting, the vertical seams will not be as apparent.  It will become a baby quilt, to be held in reserve until needed.  I still need to trim the top and bottom straight.  Is that something I should do before or after quilting?


I used the Quick Curve Ruler from Sew Kind of Wonderful to cut the pieces for this quilt top.  And a combination of the Metro Wave pattern, Jenny's instructional videos, and my own creativity to get it all together.   I have some cut curves left over.  I am thinking of turning them into a pillow sham.
 
Sewing the curves is really not difficult.  This ruler has opened up a whole new world of curved piecing to me.  What will be next?

This is beautiful!!! I love how much you can do with the ruler and how easy it makes curved piecing:-)

It looks beautiful! Some baby girl is very lucky to receive it. I'd probably wait til after quilting to square it up, but I'm no expert or even experienced.
