Let's Conquer Ruler Quilting Together!

For each ruler we will make three different designs. Visit each week to learn how to create designs on a home machine or a long arm. We start the challenge with beginner-friendly designs that will also help confident beginners warm up for the challenge.

WEEK 1 - Straight Ruler

A straight ruler is our introduction to ruler quilting. Learn basic ruler quilting techniques with a straight ruler that increase your quilting skills. These skills help us quickly finish more quilts. 

WEEK 2 - Circle Ruler

Curve stitching designs on the surface can be challenging to stitch with a walking foot and on a home machine. Acrylic ruler quilting circles is a new and easier experience. Learn some circle techniques and have fun stitching in the Essential Ruler Quilting Challenge.

WEEK 3 - Curve Ruler

During week three we continue stitching curved rulerwork designs. Learn techniques using different segments of the ruler. The designs are useful for art and bed quilts. 

WEEK 4 - Squiggle Ruler

Some quilt projects, like totes and zippered pouches look fantastic with dense curvy designs. The Squiggle ruler is a solution to easily stitch beautiful designs on small quilt projects. The same ruler has two curvy designs. One side for long loose curves and another side with tight dense curves.
