Introduction to Ruler Work on a Domestic Sewing Machine with Leonie Fraser Using your Westalee Rulers Friday 31 January 2020
31/01/2020 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm$70
Date: Friday, 31 January, 2020.
Time: 9:30 setup for a 10:00am start until 2:00pm
Focus: Machine quilting
If you have never quilted before, this is a way for you to begin with a useful project you can accomplish and show off – then move onto a table runner you have made or a quilt if you wish. We will make a sample block and a quilted runner and Leonie will show you how to make your block and runner into a quilted folder with pockets, designed by Leonie West to hold your rulers. At the end of this session you will be able to confidently quilt items such as table runners or cushion covers.
This is an introductory course. A separate course will look at quilting larger items such as blocks, or a quilt top that you have already pieced. You will need to have the Westalee foot and 12” Arc Ruler as a minimum for this course, but will achieve more variation in your work if you have the Westalee Template Sampler set.
Level of skill required for this workshop: Beginners learning to use rulers for quilting. Some machine sewing experience is an advantage.
This workshop will develop the following skills:
- Setting up and safely using a domestic sewing machine for ruler work quilting
- Choosing and preparing material for quilting
- Using a straight line and a curved line ruler
- Positioning and using a template for quilting
A materials list will be provided at time of registration.
10:00 am - 2:00 pm
