Quilting with Rulers Online Course

Made by Melanie

I am excited to announce that I am going to be recording an Online Course to help quilters with Machine Quilting with Rulers! If you want an in depth look at how to quilt your quilt, how to use a walking foot, how to free motion quilt and how the heck do you use rulers for quilting – then this course will be for you!

This course will include:

*4 weeks of video training content

* Downloadable PDFs with links to get your notions and tools to get started

* My recommendations on the what to buy/borrow for more inspiration

*You’ll get a free pattern made just for this course for a wall hanging as your Quilting with rulers sampler!

* You will get access to my Facebook Group where I will open it as soon as the course launches.

I want to bring quilters together and I want us to finish those quilts!

After years of sewing and quilting I have found a passion for ruler work and I want to share that passion with you! When I started, I didn’t know where to start, I went onto YouTube and found some videos but none that delivered exactly what I needed. This course will address the struggles of free motion ruler quilting along with the joys of fast quilting with templates. In our Facebook Group, we’ll share about our machines and feet we need, along with show and tell of finished Quilting with Rulers Samplers!

Here are some samples of my finished Quilts where I used rulers:

With your fabric is easiest to start by cutting strips.

Cut all pieces to 3″ strips and then use your 1.5″ hexagon paper to cut. Use an “add a quarter” ruler to make cutting easy!

Then – we glue! Make sure if you’re doing a Grandmother’s Flower Garden you choose 1 fabric to be the center of each flower. I am using yellow. I’m also using a layer cake for the petals.

once you have all your hexes glue basted it’s time to start prepping your flowers. I chose to keep all my colors the same so each flower is the same color. when putting them together I kept them in their color order cuz as you can see the orange and the salmon are pretty close in color. If I was doing this in a dark area I might get confused and mix them up.

Now it’s time to start stitching. First you’re going to sew two pedals together and then another two and then another two. This way you should have three sets of two petals and then your one center pedal

Then things get a little difficult when you start sewing them all together You’re going to have to fold some hexies in order to get perfect stitches.
