I finally made time to play with a new ruler from Jenny at Sew Kind of Wonderful. I used it to make the curved 9 patche blocks and surrounding area. After many choices I made pin wheel blocks to connect the curved petal blocks.
The instructions were very well written and I believe Jenny will post new patterns on her blog. She is a awesome long arm quilter as well.
This ruler opens up many possibilites. I'll be using it for something scrappy real soon.
