Fun Poinsettia's!

 Fun Poinsettia's!


 Isn't this a super fun runner for the Holiday's!  

 We've got a free tutorial to share with you on how to make this simple "Fun Poinsettia" block, using the Quick Curve Ruler.

I made 3 blocks and put them together to make a runner, but I think a whole bunch of these would make a fabulous quilt.  You could do up one for a darling pillow too!


I wanted to make my poinsettia's to match my kitchen.  Helen is making hers in more traditional holiday colors.  They really take on a different look and I love the spinning petals created with this block!



So if you are in need of a fun little holiday treat for yourself or need to make up a last minute gift for someone, than this is a perfect quilt project for you!  Fun, fast and best of all....super easy!!  

We've started a Fun Poinsettia Flickr Group for those of you that want to share your Poinsettia's with us and each other!  We would love to see what you come up with!

Have fun and occasionally we'll check in to see how your "Fun Poinsettia's" are coming along!

Thank you for this pattern. I bought your ruler from connecting threads and was thinking I would wait until after the holidays to use it. But I can make time to make this project.

I wanna do this but I cannot quilt like that.

I went to your flicker group and there are only 3 pictures there? I wanted to see what everyone was doing for the quilting.

Teri Springer said...

Thank you so much for all the sharing and teaching you do. I have several of your patterns and the ruler, all of which I purchased after a demo at our guild. I am having fun making a Christmas table runner with the Urban Abacus pattern, right now. I am sorry you are giving up your longarm business but, good grief, there are only so many hours in a day!!!

I really like the pattern. I tried it out tonight. I needed to add a bit of grey fabric to really square off the grey and blue blocks. I wasn't worried as it will be masked when I do the quilting of the block.

Debbie B said...

Thank you for another wonderful pattern! It's beautiful!!!

Ginny Chung said...

I spent a rainy sunday afternoon sewing and posted my version to the flickr account. They are not perfect but its a nice quick quilt top minus the borders.
