Ruler Work on a Domestic Sewing Machine – The Sampler Quilt with Leonie Fraser
Times: 10am to 2.30pm (9.30am setup)
Focus: Ruler work Quilting
Develop your ruler quilting skills by completing a series of blocks that will use the quilt as you go method to complete a beautiful quilt.At the end of this course you will be able to confidently quilt your own tops with a variety of patterns. We will look at techniques, threads, material, needles and accessories. You can start quilting with this course, or follow up from the one-day introduction to expand your ruler quilting repertoire.
Using rulers can open up a world of possibilities in your quilting life and saves money in not paying for commercial quilting on one quilt!
Level of skill required for this workshop: Suitable for all levels of experience with quilting and beginners with free-motion and ruler work quilting.
A few notes about buying your material to use for this quilt!
- It may seem that you are buying a lot of material all at once, but you will be purchasing all the material you will need for the project before you start sewing – fabric for the top, backing and batting for a whole 60” x 60” quilt.
- This project makes a quilt that can be totally reversible, so you can use different colours for the top and the back to accentuate this feature.
- Canberra Sewing stocks an excellent range of colours in homespun materials which is very suitable for the project. I will be in the shop during the machine set-up time to assist if you want to purchase your fabric on the first day of the class.
- There are many types of batting on the market (wool, cotton, bamboo and blends) and all serve different purposes. Purchase a batting you prefer and can afford, avoiding full polyester battings. To show the patterns in my quilting, I have used Matilda’s Own wool/ poly which is also available at the shop.
A materials list will be provided on registration. A ruler work foot is required for this class.
