    Ruler Quilting

    Tried a little ruler quilting on Pat Sloan’s “Oh My Stars.” Still need to do the borders.

    You did a great job on your block. I am hoping to learn some ruler work...Are you teaching yourself or is there a particular tutorial that you found helpful?
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Very nice looking. But, we need more details. Was this done on a DSM? How large is your quilt? I'm really interested in ruler work with a DSM but am not sure I can "walk and chew gum".

    You did a great job. I find that some kind of non-skid thing on the back of the ruler makes a difference for me. I use the clear HandiQuilter rough tape for mine, but what have others found useful?

    It was done on a Sweet Sixteen. The quilt is about 40 x 50.

    I use a little slice of shelf liner (the rubbery kind) and some E6000 to make the non-skid pieces for the back of my ruler.
    Really great ruler work here. Keep going!

    Teaching myself with some help from Angela Walters on YouTube. Also one of her books.

    That came out well. I haven't had the nerve to try it yet, but your results are making me consider the "new to me" technique.
    KEEP CALM and CARRY ON!!
