Rules 101 – Patsy Thompson Workshop

May 18 @ 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

This hands-on class will teach you the basics of ruler-guided free motion quilting using your home sewing machine.

Some of the things included will be:

  • Straight line ruler work and curved ruler work
  • Creating a variety of ruler-based border framework designs
  • Filling in our ruler-based framework designs with free motion quilted designs
  • How to audition your ruler work designs on paper before taking them to fabric
  • Create block and border designs using ruler work
  • Ruler work border designs created with basic arc rulers

This class is designed for the quilter who knows the basics of ruler work on a home sewing machine and is ready to explore more challenging designs using ruler work. This class will bolster your ruler work skills, your free motion quilting skills, and your design skills. Rulers will be loaned out to use during class so you do not need to spend a lot of money to “try out” the technique of ruler work.

**NOTE: You must have a true ruler foot and an extension table for your machine to participate in this class. If your machine manufacturer does not yet offer a ruler foot, please seek the assistance of your dealer ahead of class so a foot can be ordered for you

If you already own arc rulers, you’ll be able to transfer all these skills to your own set of arc rulers.

Please join us!
