Rulerwork Quilting

Quilting with templates minimizes the need to rotate your quilt under a domestic machine which cuts down on time and effort. You will quilt uniform designs with smooth lines and it will also help you develop your free motion skills. The stitching direction is determined by the movement of your hands. Quilting in several directions ensures a squarer finished piece. So bring your machine, drop your feed dogs and let's have some fun!! (Make sure your machine is clean and oiled before class.)

Supply List/Homework:

**Ruler Foot ** (see below)

Good Measure Jubilee Set of Templates (either low shank or high/longarm thickness)**

Jubilee Panel
Practice Quilt sandwich

50 wt cotton thread-White,Black,Gray
Seam Ripper
2 Full Bobbins to match backing
80/12 Topstitch needles
Water Soluble Marker

Quilting Gloves
Free Motion Glider

Students will bring their own machine with manual for this class, and must be very familiar with using that machine beforehand.  You must be able to adjust thread tension, set up for free motion quilting, and have had some recent practice with free motion quilting on the machine before taking this class. You will also need a table top extension table or maybe boxes that are the same height as your machine so you have a flat surface to work on.

**The type of ruler foot determines the template thickness you can use, so it is very important to know which type of foot works with your machine - ie low shank or high shank (NOT an ordinary embroidery foot.) I recommend contacting a machine dealer with your make/model of machine and they can help you purchase the right ruler foot.**

**To determine if your machine requires a low or high ruler foot, measure from the center of the screw hole to the needle bed of your machine in foot down position.  Low shank is 1/2 inch from the needle bed and a High shank is about 1 inch from the needle bed. Again, your machine dealer can help clarify what you have. Typically, any machine with a ruler foot can use a high shank/longarm ruler.  HOWEVER, some machines don't have clearance behind the foot and would require low shank templates.**

HOMEWORK:  Make a "quilt sandwich" with your panel and also bring a moderate size practice "quilt sandwich" (using scrap fabrics).
