Learn how to use specialized quilting rulers to create accurate, repeatable designs. Create straight lines, curved lines, scallops, waves, and specific designs while free-motion quilting with the use of these rulers. Students will practice various exercises with a ruler foot and rulers on a domestic machine. If you have your own ruler foot, rulers, and extension table, please bring to class.
RULER FOOT – A free-motion foot, where all edges of the foot are ¼” from the needle. The thick outside edge of the foot, called the ‘fence’ keeps the ruler from sliding under or over the foot. The BERNINA Ruler Foot #96 is available for BERNINA Q Series and the BERNINA Adjustable Ruler Foot #72 is available for BERNINA domestic sewing machines.
QUILTING RULERS – Acrylic templates that are 3/8 to 1/4 inch thick and are meant to be held against a ruler foot to create a specific shape.
