Has anyone done the Spicy Spiral Tablerunner? LQS is offering it as a class in a few weeks, and I really like the way it looks. I think it'd make a really cute Christmas gift.

The thing is, it requires a 9 degree wedge ruler, and they are an additional $29 on top of the class fee and pattern.

If you've made one of these, have you been able to use the ruler for anything else? I recently purchased the Wing Clipper and the Tucker Trimmer for the Back to Nature quilt I'm doing, so have recently invested a significant amount in rulers. If I can use them for more projects (so far, LOVE the Wing Clipper, haven't yet used the Tucker Trimmer), I don't mind - but I don't want to end up with one I'll never use again.

Hi, check on ebay. I recently got my 9 degree wedge ruler off of there for about half that including shipping. It was a set of 3 wedge rulers. I haven't done the spiral tablerunner but I am working on a circular bargello wall hanging for my son. They are cool to do with the wedge rulers. Also check on amazon too if you don't see what you want on ebay.
Thanks,
Sherryl

I love the 9degree wedge ruler it is so much fun. I've made spiral quilts, table toppers, butterfly quilts, and butterfly wall hangings. I think it would be worth your time and money. I also took a class, but I think you could probably learn it yourself, there is a book out I think it is called quilts without corners, it is a good book, and explains very well.

You can do all kinds of different things with the ruler, I used it to make a bargello type quilt, by turning the ruler 180 degrees, and sewing them into a straight stratta. It turned out really neat.

The wedge ruler you need for the spicy spiral table runner is the long one. Not the one that comes in the 3-pack.

I made the table runner, and just yesterday I bought fabrics to make a Christmas one.

The ruler is expensive but I borrowed one from a friend. I was surprized how much I loved making the runner. I've made a few and I need to give the ruler back sometime. If I ever find one cheap, i'll buy it for my self.

Check out my blogpost where I made my first one.

I think I bought that set of 3 a few years back a quilt show. It was amazing how it goes together.

I haven't made anything using the rulers. :oops: :cry:

Thank you!

Since you've made it - and also might like one of your own if the price is right - would you take a look at this and see if you think it will work? It's much less expensive than the one that is advertised specifically for Spicy Spiral.

Either way, your comments and picture have pushed me over the edge. I'm definitely signing up for the class. The sample they had up was done in non-traditional Christmas fabrics.

If you click on this link, then scroll down, you'll see the class sample. The picture is kind of small, but if you click on it you'll get a larger picture. http://www.ivythimble.com/classes/8_2010class.htm

I made many Christmas tree skirts and getting ready to do the table runner so I have used it many times so yes it was worth the investment in my book.

This one is $12, but sadly they don't ship overseas.
