Our very own Nancy Walters will teach you how to use the popular Westalee Rulers on a domestic sewing machine. This is a class for those who have not used a ruler foot and rulers to quilt on their domestic sewing machine. Nancy will show you what quilting supplies are helpful for ruler work and will teach you the basics of quilting straight lines.
In this first class you will learn the proper set up of your machine for ruler work, how to fix tension problems, learn what all the markings on your ruler mean, how to pull threads to the top when you start and finish, and how to bury your threads. You will be learning the grid block on
10" x 10" quilt sandwiches, with a finished quilt block size of 6" x 6".
Your first quilt sandwich will help you become comfortable moving your arc ruler against the stationary ruler foot while moving your fabric and arc ruler together. You second quilt sandwich will be provided for you with the markings on it to practice the grid block with your 12" arc template without breaking thread. You will then learn how to mark the third quilt sandwich and quilt the final grid block.
Once you have perfected the straight lines, you will be ready to join Nancy in future classes!
