In Part 1 a few weeks back (17th June 2015), we spoke about using long arm rulers to guide our free motioning on quilts to create straight lines, grids and more. Pictured above are 2 of the rulers I have found very helpful in guiding me to make lovely circles, curves, scallops and so on. Here are some pics of my “play time”:

No perfect yet......still learning & playing.....but getting there slow but sure!

And then I got creative trying to make a skyline to match our SKYLINE range of sewing machines......YES, you can use these rulers on the Skyline machines!
