Fun with Rulers



Join us for a fun and informative ruler work class. We will use a circular quilting ruler to construct a center flower. Bring a pillowtop sandwich to class and learn to stitch out the quilting design. Instructions for finishing the block into an 18” square pillow will be discussed. The pillow construction will need to be completed on your own.


Skill Level: Beginner
Skill Details: Working knowledge of performing ruler work on your machine is recommended (i.e. having the proper ruler foot, knowing the shank type of your machine, and having the appropriate rulers).
Requirements: TWO Pillowtop sandwiches: Each sandwich consists of three square (22?x22?) pieces (one fabric piece for the pillow top, one fabric piece for the pillow top back, and one batting piece). Each sandwich should be adhered together in a quilt sandwich prior to class. Adhesive spray will not be allowed to be used in class. One sandwich will be used for practice. The other sandwich will be used for the pillowtop project. Thread for quilting: Either a complimentary or contrasting color to your pillowtop fabric. Quilting Ruler: One circular quilting ruler. A 3" - 4" circle is best. The ruler should be longarm (6 mm), high shank (4.5 mm), or low shank (3 mm) thickness depending on your machine. Pattern: None. Feet: A proper ruler foot and a regular sewing foot for your machine. Marking Ruler: 8-point 12 ?? Crosshair Ruler and a straight ruler. Marking Tool: A water or air soluble marking pen. Needle: A size 80/12 or 90/14 topstitch or jeans needle is suggested. Pillow back: One additional 18 ?? by 10? rectangular piece of fabric and one 18 ?? by 13? rectangular piece of fabric will be needed to construct the envelope-type pillow back into a finished pillow. This will not be needed for class. Sewing machine with a ruler foot and a regular sewing foot required for class.
Instructor Bio: Theresa is a staff member at Roberts Sewing Center. She is currently working on the sales floor and in the machine service center. Her grandmother was accomplished at needlepoint and her mother was a seamstress. She was inspired to start quilting about 8 years ago when her sister asked her about some of her grandmother?s UFOs. After quilting her grandmother?s Garland of Roses hand-appliqued quilt, she was hooked on quilting. She is forever learning more about the craft and developing her skills.
