New Skill - Quilting with Rulers

Even though I've been quilting for over 30 years, there's always something new to learn or ways to improve my skills. I happened to see a post about ruler quilting on one of my social media feeds and looked into it a little to see what it was all about.
 That little foray into ruler quilting led to a class at my local quilting shop and a purchase of a ruler foot for my specific machine and a set of basic rulers to get started.
 I made up a simple table runner from some pretty fabrics and after a little practice on a practice piece, I tried this new technique out.
 It's not perfect, but it looks pretty good for a first attempt on a project.
 I'll need a lot more practice, but I'm watching all the Angela Walters and Amanda Murphy videos to hopefully learn some tips from the experts!
 And ta-da! A finished table runner!

What techniques have you learned recently? Where do you go to learn new things?

  1. I'm new to trying to machine quilt so I am definitely going to have to investigate this method. Thanks for sharing.
