When I first saw the quick curve ruler and all the amazing patterns that the ladies from Sew Kind of Wonderful came up with, I was smitten. I even went so far as to purchase a pattern, the ruler and even fabric to make Urban Windows. Then life got in the way and I forgot all about it. After sitting for more than a year, I put it on my 3rd quarter FAL list in 2014 as my kick in the butt to stop procrastinating. I actually started and finished it all within the quarter.
I was surprised at how quickly the blocks came together. I’m used to working with much smaller pieces of fabric that take forever to form a single block….this was a nice change. After all the blocks are finished you have to square them up which leaves you with a pretty pile of trimmings.
Once I had all the blocks finished I put them up on my design wall to find a layout that I liked.
Adding the sashing made the blocks shine even more.
It had a lot of fun quilting it. I custom quilted each “window” with a different design and then I used a funky triple wave in the sashing. I like all the texture that the quilting added.

Love the fabric!! This is the first time I have seen another quilter use Hello Gorgeous besides for market promotion. Great pattern for the fabric.
