Quilting with Rulers: Video of Double S Ruler

I am so happy to finally post this video! It's been sitting on Youtube, unpublished for several weeks because I had sold out of the ruler I show here and it was out of stock with my distributor. I think it's one of my best videos so far, shot in almost one take!


I love the elegant look that this double S curve ruler gives to a triangular space. It's a little fiddly to work with so I share some tips for getting better results. It is a full 1/4 inch thick ruler, so you have to be careful to avoid using it behind the foot of some low-shank machines.

I used it in the four corners of my ruler work sampler quilt, which I've shown a few peeks here and there, but I'll show all four corners in my next post. Each corner is done slightly differently, but because they're each done with the same 'frame' and then feathered the same way, the difference is fairly subtle.

The ruler is now available at the shop again, Ronda's Double S Ruler. It makes such beautiful curved crosshatching in triangles.

  3. Amy Thanks so much for sharing your talents. I am in awe of the magic you make with FMQ. I continue to struggle with pulling a large size quilt along and keeping my eye on the path I am going on. Lots to think about. Thanks again. Love watching your videos.
