Westalee Rulers can help to transform your Free Motion Quilting by enabling you to undertake free motion quilting in a controlled way on your domestic sewing machine.  Using the rulers will help you to stitch a large range of beautiful patterns and designs to complement your quilts.

I know that using a new product can be a bit intimidating, so this class is designed to help you get the most from your Westalee Rulers by providing plenty of hands on advice, guidance, and encouragement. 

 

The class will cover the following basic elements and you will make at least two sample blocks to showcase the skills learnt on the day:

 

  • Attaching foot correctly, adjusting height, set up machine for FMQ

  • Discuss threads, needles, and tension

  • How to hold and use the standard ruler

  • Using ruler markings and general fabric marking techniques

  • Make sample blocks – one using straight line cross hatching the other using curved cross hatching

  • Provide information about additional rulers
     

Specific Requirements:

  • Appropriate foot set and extension table for your machine

  • A minimum of 2 quilt sandwiches approximately 12’’ square for general practice work.  Calico or similar is fine

  • A minimum of 2 quilt sandwiches approximately 10’’ square for sample blocks – I suggest good quality plain cotton fabric

  • Good quality thread

 

Optional extras

  • Quilt gloves such as Machingers

  • Slider or Glider for your machine
