    Ruler work - Quilt as you go quilt!

Size:  222.3 KBHere is the rulerwork Quilt as you go quilt, which I started in October and finished in March 2019. Instructor Pam from mysassynotions, is a fabulous Instructor, giving us hints and guidance through the process. I didn't realise when I signed up I would be making a quilt, so just used fabrics from my scraps, however it turned out ok. I loved doing ruler work, and will be doing more of this on my quilts. It was not a very expensive course being $35 for the 7 months of learning a new technique.

    Nice job! I haven't tried ruler work. I would say that was money well spent for your class.

    Great work! It is encouraging to see that ruler work can be applied to QAYG.

    That looks beautiful! I bought some rulers but haven't used them yet. You've encouraged me and I thank you!

    Very nice. Was this done on a domestic machine? Or a mid arm? Or long arm? The reason I ask is that I have an HQSS Sit Down machine, for which I have purchased several rulers. I am finding it hard to hold ruler snug against the needle while moving fabric. I have heard that ruler work is much easier with a long arm machine. You did a great job, especially for your first stab at a new technique. Kudos to you.

    Wow! Those quilting samples look fantastic. You learned a lot from this course. I think you got your money's worth. I look forward to seeing how you incorporate these techniques into a new quilt.

    I'm starting a ruler QAYG class this month and hope mine will be as nice as yours. I did Janet Collins sampler quilt and it was difficult to work on whole quilt and am really looking forward to doing blocks and then putting together as I think I will have more control. Beautiful job and great colors.

    Looks beautiful, Donna. I do like your colour choice. Is that the first ruler work you have ever done? I do love Pam's classes. She really does walk you through the steps.

    Yes, this was my first try at ruler works. I looked forward to each class, and had lots of time to practice, also once you take the class you can download the lesson and the tips and techniques, and that way you can refer to the downloads whenever you want. I did all the ruler work on my Bernina.

    Great job. I'm very impressed.I love your color choices. I've of course seen ruler work demonstrated at several quilt shows, I've often said "someday", but after your thread and seeing your work I'm inspired. Thank you for sharing.

    It turned out great! I've thought about using a QAYG technique with blocks that have been quilted using ruler work. Yours is very inspiring. What rulers were you using?

    Thanks for your nice comment, and to answer your question, I found a sampler package of the original Westalee rulers, I don't remember how much they cost, but I do believe there were 6 rulers and they weren't too expensive. If you contact Pam at my sassy notions.com - I know she would be happy to help you.
