I saved this little baby quilt specifically to be my first practice quilt on FloMo. I wanted to do some ruler work and some free motion on it to get used to the feel of the machine. I have to say that FloMo doesn't take much getting used to!
Yesterday I did all of the ruler work and used it to play with all of my rulers!
I stitched some small, medium and large triangles over the quilt and decided to do ruler work in each of them. I'll do free motion fills everywhere else. I love curved cross hatching and DeLoa's Boomerang rulers.
This wavy ruler is fun too.
I did different straight line designs in the very big triangles. I did spiral, cross hatch and parallel lines.
I hadn't used these rulers in a long time and now I kow why. They are designed poorly and don't take into consideration the hopping foot. to get even peaks and valleys the ruler edge actually needs to be shaped like the stitched line.
I'll probably throw all of these out or give them away just so I don't mistakenly use them again.
Love curved cross-hatching!
Wavy cross hatching is cool too!
Curved cross hatching with a smaller curve gives a completely different effect.
I am having a blast! Free-motion today and tomorrow starts sewing weekend with Country School so I'll be back working on my Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects!
