    Jewel quilt ruler work

    The LQS in my home town has been having a monthly ruler class using Westalee rulers. Our first project was Janet Collins Sampler quilt and we are now working on the Jewel quilt by Angela Attwood. Last month we worked on the center square and this month we are working on panel 1 and 6" corner squares. I completed the final panel yesterday. When finished they will be joined by sashing, I used a lilac fabric on the back and am using Glide thread (Warm Gray) for top and bottom. First time I have used Glide thread and I like the sheen that it has, not sure how it would work for piecing but like it for quilting. It shows up on "jewel" blocks and blends into the gray panels. I haven't decided yet on color of sashing; I have enough of the purple from center square but I am leaning towards using black. Learning so much from this quilt in using my rulers.

    Fantastic ruler work. I would love to take a class but we have no LQS here & our little Sewing Lounge has not offered one yet.

    Awesome! The quilting part of the process is always my downfall but I think the ruler techniques could work for me. Thanks for sharing.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Is this the Ruler of the Month class at Quilting Mayhem? If so, I should take it, too. You're doing a great job. What machine are you using?

    Yes, this is the Ruler of the Month class. We meet the last Friday of the month. We started with playing with different rulers and then worked on Janet Collins sampler quilt. This quilt is easier to work with since you are working on blocks/panels and then connecting with sashing like a QAYG. I am using my Pfaff Performance 5.0 for this quilt but I have a Pfaff Select 3 that I also use. Come join us, we're a small group and get lots of good instruction from Debbie.

    Thanks for the information and the invite! I can't make it in June, but will check my calendar and plan to join in at some point.

    Love your ruler work. You are so lucky to have a class in your area. By me, our quilt shops all seem to be closing and of course, that means no fun classes. Enjoy your luck!

    This is so pretty! Out of curiosity, what is the process to attach the quilted pieces together? Or are they separate samplers?

    You've benefited well from the ruler class you took. Your quilting looks neat and polished.
