A foundation paper pieced pattern designed by Carolyn Friedlander. When I designed the Ruby Ruler™, I wanted to try the concept of designing with scrappy fabrics grouped into light and dark value categories on many different quilts that were not originally designed that way, quilts designed by other designers I admire. This one was perfect because Carolyn’s fabric choices on the original version were beautifully quiet and not heavily patterned. I was hoping this would turn out the way I saw it in my mind and it did. Made me smile every day when I walked into my studio.
