Ruler Work Can be Intimidating
Ruler work is what can make any quilt look spectacular, but getting started with a quilting ruler can be a little scary. This is especially true if you are new to the world of quilting. If you want to use a ruler while quilting with your sewing machine, you have to have a few tips in mind.
Extended Base is Key
Having an extended base mounted to your quilting machine is the key to using your quilting ruler without experiencing any issues. This gives you a space where the quilt can support the ruler without making contact with the needle. Our quilting rulers are even specially designed to reduce the amount of slipping. This makes straight and perfect lines when quilting more attainable.
Only Press the Ruler Down Gently
When you are pressing down the quilting ruler it is important that you do not apply too much pressure. The amount of pressure that you need to place on the ruler is just enough to ensure a piece of paper can’t be moved. You can test out the amount of pressure that you need to use by placing a piece of paper under your quilting ruler and getting a feel for it. This will give you a good idea of how much pressure needs to placed on the ruler when you are quilting.
