MORE GREAT PICS & IDEAS FOR RULER QUILTING

After 2 recent fully booked classes on Ruler quilting, as well as having our ears to the ground in the quilting world, we know ruler quilting is still of huge interest to many quilters.

Longarm quilters have been doing this for a long time with their big frames. But the popularity of using the same sort of rulers or templates for free motion quilting on regular sewing machines and sit down dedicated quilting machines like our Artistic SD18 quilter, has only been around for a few years.

You need your sewing machine set up for free motion quilting (please do searches in the search box on the opening screen of janomelife) for ruler quilting and Janome Convertible Free Motion foot set. We won’t cover that information again here as there are well over a dozen posts already on janomelife on this topic.

What we do want to share is some wonderful eye candy to inspire you to try your hand at this form of machine quilting and to work towards achieving great results with a relatively short amount of practice!

The quilt was named “Modern Tiles” Notice the curves & lines that Joanne almost certainly used rulers & templates for the quilting. Free Motion pebbles and micro stippling is used as fillers.

The next 2 pics are close ups of Joanne’s quilt.

Are you inspired? We sure hope so! This type of quilting looks much more difficult than it is………it just requires practice and determination to divide the area to be quilted into sections and then fill in the sections with ruler work and free motion techniques.
