Following the Rules

My precious gift stash of Katie Jumprope from the darling Robyn at  Coffee and Cotton has been transformed into this darling runner for my kitchen Island.  I used quilting it as a time to learn more about Ruler work on my Handi Quilter. 

At first I was frustrated beyond belief.. how did anyone ever do this???  But them I remembered the hint from one of the Internet longarm shows.. it talked about making the back of the ruler sticky.. so I used some 505 embroidery adhesive and a whole new world was opened  up to me!  While by no means am I great at ruler work given that I have only done it one time so far ( example above).. but i can see how as a long arm skill it will be one that I will want to develop for certain situations! 


  1. I remember the early days with ruler work. I HATED it, desperately. And then, at some point I just remember not loathing it so much, and finding that the ruler work opens a lot of possibilities and does help to make the seams lay flatter. Practice! Can't wait to see your runner-


Thanks for taking the time to comment, I love to hear from you!
