Last week during my weekly Live Chat, I helped troubleshoot some common frustrations when machine quilting with rulers, announced some brand new rulers as well as provided a free downloadable resource. If you missed it, here’s a recap with all the info you need.
Watch the Live Chat
In addition to helping you troubleshoot common frustrations such as skipped stitches and wobbly lines, I also addressed viewer questions. The questions were great and it was a lot of fun to “chat” with everyone about them. For instance, we talked about what kind of rulers a new quilter should start with as well as what to do when the stitching in the ditch doesn’t look so good.
To help ensure that you are successful on your machine quilting with rulers journey, I put together a downloadable pdf that has the common frustrations and suggestions I gave during the chat. All for free! Click here to download it.
Introducing my New Low Shank Rulers
One common frustration of machine quilted with rulers is not having the right ruler for your machine. If you have a low shank sewing machine, you might know what I am talking about. Using a ruler that is too high can run into the shank and not let you make beautiful designs. That’s why I have teamed up with Creative Grids to remake my 3 most popular machine quilting rulers compatible with low shank machines.
Shelly, Squiggy and Taj all have the same amazing features as my other machine quilting rulers, just in a thinner profile making them perfectly compatible with a low shank sewing machine.
I’ve put together a short video showing them in action:
They are available to preorder now! Plus you can get downloadable quilting diagrams that will show you how to make the designs featured in the video!
Join Me For Another Live Chat
I hope you are enjoying the live chats as much as I am! Since I am not traveling right now (thanks a lot corona!), it’s so nice to get to do a little teaching…….It really is my passion.
Next week’s live chat will be all about the basics of machine quilting with rulers with tips and suggestions for how to get started on a sewing machine and a longarm. I hope you will join me!
If you have any questions that you’d like me to answer in the live chat, leave it in the comments and I will do my best to answer them on Thursday. Until then, Happy Quilting!
