Learn Ruler Quilting on a Home Sewing Machine! from Quilted Joy

Quilting with rulers is the easiest way to really spectacular quilting. The ruler gives you the stability you need to create beautiful designs within blocks, borders, and sashing. But learning how to use the ruler properly can be a little daunting. That’s why I’m so excited to share that this spring I’ll be teaching a ruler quilting class for domestic home machine quilters and sit down longarm quilters!

Quilting with Rulers! Learn to finish your quilts on your home sewing machine from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

Finishing your quilts on your home sewing machine with beautiful results is absolutely possible with rulers! We’ve already done a video on using rulers on your longarm to create beautiful, precise straight lines, now we’re showing you how to get started on your domestic sewing machine.

I love rulerwork quilting because it makes me look better than I am. When you use them, your ruler foot is always in contact with the side of the ruler, which means you can get perfectly precise straight lines and curves every time.

In this video I show you the tools you ...

Dennielle's Yankee Diary - fresh off the frame from Sue Daurio's Quilting Adventures

Sigh.....big Sigh Christmas shenanigans are done!!  Loved every minute with my crazy family.  Individually they a bundle of energy each, get them in one room and it all grows exponentially!  It was a wonderful day.  I was able to sneak down to the long arm and get a few stitches in before everyone got here.  Pulled off this beauty from the frame.

This is Dennielle's Yankee Diary, you can find her on Facebook at Louanna Mary Quilt Design and on Instagram Denniele Bohannon.  The pattern is Barbara Brackman Yankee Liberty - it was a block of the month in ...

Vintage Sewing … from Quilting and More...

… is the name of this little quilted piece. Obviously, that came from what’s printed on one of the panels, but it also refers to the age of all of the pictured objects. The panels and dotted setting fabrics are all linen, from l’Atelier d’Isabelle, and I found them at the Houston show last month. […]

Marking a quilt - Becky's quilt from Sue Daurio's Quilting Adventures

I hope everyone had a safe, relaxing Thanksgiving break filled all the things that make you grateful.  I spent a little time in Indiana with daughter number one.  We chilled, did a puzzle, cooked, watched some football and just enjoyed the little time we had together, very grateful.   I normally like to share finishes for the week but well, Becky's quilt is gonna take a bit of time! It's a big one and takes up the entire frame.  So I thought I'd share what I have completed and show how I mark my quilt and things that ...

Two down! from Quilting and More...

I’ve just finished my little embroidered quilt, and it’s hanging happily on the wall for the rest of the fall season. It’s only about 18.25″ x 18.25″, so it fits almost anywhere. I’m so glad I decided on purple as the accent fabric; I think it brightens up the overall theme.         […]

Fresh off the Frame - Sandra's Quilt from Sue Daurio's Quilting Adventures

I've quilted a number of quilts for Sandra and loved every one.  She likes loose quilting on her quilts, she wants them nice and soft!  If you've seen my quilting, you now I like a lot of thread!!  But I exercised considerable restraint on this quilt (the struggle's real).  LOL quilting half as much took me twice as long!!

I wish I could applique like this.  I so love applique but I have the patience of a three year old and my hand work looks like a three year old did it!!!

I didn't stitch on ...

Apples and cheesecake from Quilting and More...

I belong to an online community of people who are fans of Apple technology. It’s fun group and, even better, no one ever has a mean word to say to anyone else. In fact, I can’t recall a mean word being said about other brands, either, when someone is comparing such-and-such a feature. The person […]

In the Shadow of the Plus in Modern Patchwork from MMM Quilts

I can finally write about my quilt which is in the current issue of Modern Patchwork! You can get your copy now in major stores and bookstores, or click the link in the sidebar to purchase online.



It started with my fifth design, back on February 10, that I drew in the second #30quiltdesignschallenge2018 I hosted on Instagram this past spring. The design got a ton of interest and likes, and I knew it was a good'un, so I removed it from Instagram. I played with it a bit and came up with the shadowed plus signs floating on ...

Challenge Quilt from The Quilt Yarn

Continuing on my challenge quilt for the local HQ group run by Heather Hopkins

Am running behind and will have to do another 6 of those including filling in the background with some pebble work...

Pays to pay attention...promptly put my big pebbles in the wrong spot when starting off. Aren't they the worst thing to unpick!

This will look great when all finished. Undecided whether to put something in the sashing, will depend on how much time I have got left. This is supposed to be finished for the November meeting. I should really put some simple ...

Disappointment from Quilting and More...

That’s the name of my latest quilt, because I had a “vision” of what I wanted to do, but I kept changing my mind. So the final product isn’t anything like what I’d originally intended, and I’m a bit disappointed. Oh well — live and learn. This is a small quilt, approximately 24″ x 24″. […]

Beothuk Star from MMM Quilts

This little quilt was more than a little demanding with her quilting. What I thought I could knock out by Sunday/Monday at the latest ended up taking me until Thursday evening! She is so worth it though. Let me present Beothuk Star. I hope you'll grab a java and read her story. I loved every moment of creating this quilt. She is #4 on my Q3 FAL List of ten items.

Amy's Quilting Juggling Act from Free Motion Quilting Adventures

Hard on the heels of teaching at the Janome Education Summit, I've been dabbling in quite a few quilty projects, though only a few or them involved quilting with rulers or ruler work. Click on the above link to read about the summit and links from other fabulous participants.


Janome passed along some photos from the event, so I thought I'd share them with you too. The Summit was my biggest class yet in teaching free motion quilting with rulers. Thank goodness we all had the same machine (Janome 9400), ruler foot and the Janome Ruler Work Kit ...

Debating from Quilting and More...

I’ve been working very slowly on the quilting for La Vie Est Belle, and I’m almost finished with the New York Beauty blocks. But once that’s done, I’m still puzzled as to what I’m going to do around the little stars in the spaces between the NYB blocks. <sigh> I’ve mocked up at least a […]
