Machine Quilting with Rulers
with Anita Chaisty

This is a beginner class to learn about using rulers to quilt on your home machine.  Quilting with rulers allows you to make straight lines without a walking foot, less turning of your quilt, and gives you another set of options for your quilting.  We will work on a sample piece and you can bring blocks or scraps that you would like to practice on.  If you already own some quilting rulers, please bring them to play with.  This is a technique class not a project class so be prepared to explore a new experience.

A straight quilting ruler is required for class.  The cost of the ruler, Creative Grids 'Slim', for class is $19.  If you wish, you can bring a straight ruler with you.  I recommend smaller rulers because they are easier to handle.  You will also need a ruler foot for your machinethis will not be available for purchase in class.  There are resources listed in your supply list.  I will bring my own rulers so that you can sample different types of rulers.  So come and have fun learning about quilting rulers.

April 25
