Ruler Work Quilting Class

Take your free-motion skills to a higher level as you practice and learn how to use  straight and curved rulers to create unique quilting designs.  Students must have some free-motion quilting experience prior to class.  The first class will be devoted to straight-line quilting and the second class devoted to creating curved and circular designs. 

Supply List:

·   (4)– 20” x 20” muslin fabric pieces for top

·   (4)– 20” x 20” warm and natural batting pieces or thin batting

·   (4 )– 20” x 20” muslin fabric pieces  for backing  Have at least 2 muslin, batting, and backing for each day’s class.  Also, any light-colored solid fabric will work if you don’t have muslin.

·   50-wt or 40-wt. thread plus 1 or 2 wound bobbins

·   Quilting or top-stitch needle,  size 12 or 14

·   6” x 12” or  6” x 24” ruler for drawing lines

·   Basting spray, opt.

·   Frixion or disappearing or washable marking pen

·   Machingers gloves

·   Tweezers

·   Sewing machine with free-motion ruler foot for low or high shank sewing machine; and extension table

·   Supreme Slider or teflon sheet attached to the sewing machine bed

·   1 straight line and 1 or 2 curved machine free-motion quilting rulers; if you are buying these, my favorite straight line ruler is Sid by Angela Waters and Creative Grids with second favorite the 12” long x 2” wide Sew Biz Marion ruler. 

·   The Westalee Design by Sew Steady template sampler set of 6  rulers is a good combo set for curved designs; but it doesn’t have a straight ruler in the set.  Some rulers that have a 1/16” hole cut out in the ruler come with a thumb  tack which allows you to pivot the starting point to make a circular-style design.   Make sure you bring this for the second class if your ruler comes with it. 

Special instructions:  Do not layer fabrics and batting prior to class.  The first class will be devoted to straight-line ruler quilting and the second class will explore curved-line ruler quilting.
