Rulerwork is a quilting technique using thick acrylic quilting rulers to create exact, repeatable designs. Quilting rulers are used with a foot designed for rulerwork, as a guide for a line, a curve or a specific design. These techniques are not new to the world of quilting, most especially longarm quilting. Longarmers have been using rulerwork techniques for years. Now that we have a ruler foot for BERNINA domestic sewing machines, everyone is able to employ rulerwork techniques. Over the next nine months, we will explore many rulerwork techniques. Each month we will construct a 9 patch block with 2 borders. We will then quilt the block with the ruler technique presented that month. At the end of nine months, you will have the choice of constructing 9 20inch pillows or putting the quilted blocks together for a 60" x 60" quilt. Bring your sewing machine, rulers, and 9 patch blocks each month. Or, you may rent a table model Longarm for only $10 each class!
