Recently a friend invited me to try out the new Mini Quick Curve Ruler, and this table runner is my version of the basic pattern. Here's what I like about the ruler: accuracy and interesting shapes. Here's what I didn't like: it's very difficult to get a quarter inch seam allowance on the outer edge of the shapes. My friend had the same problem, so for once it's not me being precision-challenged.
It's a happy accident that the bowl goes nicely atop the runner. All the clothesline bowls I made as gifts were well received, and I'm pretty sure I'm not done with exploring them.
