Blog Hop Day 9! ...and the Curve it Up Challenge QAL

It's day 9 of our Blog Hop.  I hope you have all had fun following the Blog Hop and the many ways you can use the Quick Curve Ruler.  

Today we have two blogs for you to visit! The first one is Melissa@msmidge I've been following her Metro Twist progress on Instagram.  I love how her quilt turned out!


Her fabric selection is lovely and I love the background fabric she chose to go with!  Go over to Melissa's post to see more pictures of her beautiful quilt!

Lucy@lucymade did up a beautiful Metro Medallion block!


Love the colors she chose!!
She has a really good post today on how she made this block up, go check it out!

Now for the Curve it Up Challenge QAL!

If you are planning on participating in our QAL, remember to add our QAL button to your blog or website!

*Here are some details you need to know about the QAL:


*The QAL starts this coming Tuesday, September 2nd and will go for 6 weeks, ending on Friday, October 10th.

*We will check in with you weekly and will have some fun Giveaway's throughout!

*We will end with a linky party for everyone to show off their quilts!

Now for the Challenge part of it!

We are giving you 3 options to choose from:

Option 1  Using all the Curve it Up blocks, simply create your own design!!  That's what Helen did for our Quilt Sample:
 You can see how she mixed all her blocks up.  Many of the Curve it Up blocks have 4 parts.  You can easily separate those blocks and use them to fill in other spaces.  Mathematically it will work!!
 
 Option 2  Using only one or two blocks create your own design.  Here are 3 samples showing how fun it can be to come up with your own design.
 This is the Curve it Up Log Cabin block. 1 part of the block, repeated, then set on point.

 This quilt uses 4 Curve it Up Star blocks and the Curve it Up Curvy Geese blocks for the border.

This quilt uses 6 Curve it Up Dresdens and one of the Curve it Up Sashings to create a border on the top and bottom of the quilt.

Option 3  Anything go's!!  Basically if your mind can think it then this is the option for you!!

Are you getting excited yet??  We are!!  I (Jenny) will be making my own Curve it Up Challenge quilt right along side of you all and sharing my progress as we go along.  If you have any question, let us know.

Tomorrow is the last day of the Blog Hop....great giveaway....and a linky party here on our blog for you to show off your own Quick Curve Ruler Quilts!!

Happy Blog Hopping!

Great post, especially since this is a pattern I'm considering for a baby quilt I need to make. I missed the deadline for the special on the pattern for the quilt along. :(

So if you don't have your own blog or website you can't be a part of the QAL? And when you say anything goes do you mean anything we can come up with using the QCR not necessarily in the Curve It Up Pattern or anything using those specific blocks from Curve It Up? Sorry I'm new to blogging and QAL's and such.

You do not need a blog or website to participate:-)
The QAL is specific to the Curve It Up pattern because those are the samples we will be making and sharing. You are always welcome to make anything with the Quick Curve Ruler and share it with us or post it to our Flicker group! Helen and Jenny

Ive been trying to contact you so I can get my copy of the Curve it up Pattern. I've emailed several times (4 or 5) and have private messaged you. I haven't heard anything back. Am I just out the 18$ I paid? Can/Will you help?

I truly apologize for my curt sounding comment. Please feel free to delete it if you are able. I'm sorry for your loss and apologize for my impatience.

Helen/Jenny any chance there is a possible color list for the color layout Helen did on this post? I would love to copy similar colors
