In Which I Try My Best to Actually Follow a Pattern

The baby quilt tour continues...

My good friend Linda Warren is an amazing pattern designer. Her designs look very complicated, but are actually quite easy to construct. Using her enviable math skills Linda has designed a new ruler that makes piecing "circles" a breeze. And, they come out accurately. And, you don't tear your hair out while working on them. I was lucky enough to test the new ruler for her.  I followed one of Linda's patterns (and made a few modifications, because following a pattern *exactly* as written goes against every fiber in my being), and made this little quilt, which I think turned out great. The quilt now belongs to a soon-to-be-born little boy.

You can see the new ruler in action in October when Linda will be demonstrating it at A Notion to Quilt during the Massachusetts Quilt Shop Hop.
