Basics of Ruler Quilting



People all over the world have taken this class via Craftsy online with Amy, now you can take it in person from Amy herself. Learn how to use rulers to guide your free motion quilting for smooth curves and straight lines.  You don’t have to be an expert with free motion, just be comfortable with the basics of setting your machine up for free motion, moving the quilt. Let the rulers be your guide to simple, yet effective quilting designs.
