One of the things my husband and I tried when we moved from Texas to Ohio was curling. Yes – the Olympic sport where you push large granite rocks down a sheet of ice. It turns out we really enjoy it and ended up joining a club here in Cleveland! We’ve just started our second season. As I do with anything I get excited about, I made a foundation paper piecing pattern.
I knew I wanted to make a skirt to wear while curling. I started these blocks in the middle of last curling season, but only barely got my skirt finished in time to wear to our end-of-season dinner.
I modeled the fit after a skirt I usually wear curling, and I’ve worn this one to several games already this year and it’s great for me to curl in. As a bonus, it’s a good conversation starter at bonspiels! I also made a pillow with these patterns to raffle off at one of our bonspiels last season, which I think was a big hit.
This pattern is now available in my craftsy shop in 12″ and 6″ sizes, but if you are also a curler I’m happy to send you the pattern in exchange for trading club pins! Email me at email@example.com.
