You should not do this technique if you do not have the appropriate foot and rulers. If the ruler happen to slide under the foot and hit the needle, it can brake your machine and you wont be happy!
That being said I used my inappropriate ruler and my inappropriate foot to quilt on my domestic sewing machine....I am such a rebel :)
I suck at doing straight lines when doing free motion quilting. Since my present project had many of those, to many changes if direction to use my walking foot, I decided to try the ruler technique ( you can see here a class about this technique Quilting with rulers on home machine )
Or read the teacher's blog right here Amy's free motion Quilting
I am very happy with the results, my line look great (my circles are not that hot :) but this quilt will probably be a VERY good practice)
- Fall colours ....still ripping the pebbles I FMQ on it.....it is taking forever!!!
- The dancer. Quilting right now.
