Ruling The Quilt

A friend intrigued me with the Ruler Foot for the domestic sewing machine.  This led me to watch a couple of classes on BluPrint (aka Craftsy) since I got a year of unlimited for Christmas.  I watched Angela Walters' class on "Point to Point" quilting and one by Amy Johnson.

This pretty much convinced me that "Yes, I do do that!"  so I found a good deal on a foot that came with an arc ruler.
It arrived today and I just had to play with it.  There was an interesting design on the package that I wanted to try.
I had a quilt sandwich ready to practice on - a large orphan block would work just fine. Maybe I can make something with the quilted fabric later.
I'm not sure how well you can see those curves, but the are better than I could do with free motion quilting.
Here is the back.
 That fabric is a bit too busy.... but  you can probably see the quilting lines better.

And the ruler foot and ruler are here.
I am thinking I will have a lot of fun with these new toys.
 It is a new year, and there are lots of surprises so stay tuned!

New toys are such fun - and your curves look GREAT!! Santa brought me a set for Christmas and I played with them a little - but now I need to watch those videos again and play some more - ;))

Your quilting looks really nice, Gene. The latest update to my Janome included a ruler foot. I'll need to sign up for classes at the local dealer if I attempt that method. How is it holding the ruler in place and moving your fabric at the same time?

Your arcs are fabulous.

Great quilting. You can make a tote bag with your quilted fabric.
