Free Motion - Ruler Work



In our second class in the free motion series, we start using rulers as templates. You'll embark on a journey to precision and creativity. This specialized workshop is perfect for quilters looking to elevate their skills and achieve intricate, professional designs. You'll learn how to leverage quilting rulers as guides for stitching straight lines, curves, and complex patterns with precision. We'll cover ruler selection, proper positioning, and stitching techniques to ensure your quilting is both accurate and visually stunning. Whether you're a seasoned quilter or a newcomer, this class will equip you with the knowledge and hands-on practice to produce quilts that boast meticulous and captivating designs. Join us to unlock the potential of ruler-guided quilting and add a touch of sophistication to your projects.

Students must come with some experience with free motion sewing. 

Things you will need for this class:
  • Sewing machine in good working order (if need be, you may borrow one of ours in class, but it is best to learn on your own machine)
  • Brand new needle 
  • Ruler quilting foot (this is different from a regular free motion foot)
  • Vibrant coloured thread for quilting, so you can see your beautiful stitching (I like quilting with King Tut)
  • Extension table (necessary to have a flat surface for the rulers to rest against)
  • Fabric will be provided
  • Optional:
    • Free motion gloves or grippers
    • Sew Slip or similar non-stick mat
