I am machine quilting on a long arm my 3rd. quilt It is a jacobs ladder I made, the top is beautiful so I have been told. My oldest daughter has claimed it already.(maybe because her long time boyfriends name is jacob) My problem is my quilting skills are not all that good yet. So I have decided to take out all my stitches, I know what is involved because I did this years ago on my sisters Christmas quilt someone else(professional)quilted. But I am not one bit happy with my s.i.d. quilting.I do not have a ruler to go with the long arm yet can someone advise me on what kind to buy, needs to be simple to use.
