Amanda Murphy Every Angle Ruler Workshop - February 21, 2024, Sun Prairie

This first Amanda Murphy Ruler & Template workshop will feature Amanda’s Good Measure ruler called “The Every Angle”.  Cindy will teach you how to use this ruler and Amanda’s book to quilt smooth lines and create uniform designs. She plans to have additional workshops each trimester as students learn to use rulers to make feathers, circles, curves, waves and many more designs.  Using the rulers and ruler foot provides the stability to keep the stitching line more controlled in your quilting.   What a great way to add another strategy for quilting your quilts.  Rulerwork Quilting Idea Book by Amanda Murphy provides over 50 outline designs to use with her fantastic rulers

Skill Level: Beginner
Skill Details:
Materials Included: Supply List
Requirements: Supply List: 1. Sewing machine in good working order, and it is a good idea to bring along the instruction manual for your machine. You need to have a basic knowledge of how to operate your machine, namely threading it, winding the bobbin, and how to drop the feed dogs. Don?t forget to bring the machine?s foot pedal and power cord. (It is easy to forget them at home.) 2. Ruler Foot specific for your machine, made to use with rulers and templates. 3. The free arm extension bed of your machine needs to be as big as possible. The large plexiglass extension tables are a good investment if you are going to do a lot of machine quilting. If you currently have one, bring it. 4. Set of three Every Angle Straight Edge Ruler by Amanda Murphy and any other rulers like these 5. Rulerwork Quilting Idea Book by Amanda Murphy 6. Quilting Needle for your machine (New, Sharp needle, Schmetz, Microtex, or those called Machine Quilting needles. The size of the needle depends on the thread being used. For 50 wt. cotton use quilting needle #75/11 or #80/12. 7. Small scissors for clipping threads 8. White or Light colored Cotton thread and matching bobbin thread (50 wt. is a good choice) but you can quilt with any type of thread. Light thread on light fabric doesn?t show every little wobble, but if you want to easily see your stitching, use a light or medium color thread. Avoid dark color thread. In class we will discuss the appropriate threads and needles to use in your quilting. For your tablerunner, you may want to use a variegated thread that you have purchased and haven?t tried it out yet. The colors do not need to be a perfect match. On a wholecloth runner, you want the quilting to be more visible. 9. An acrylic 6?x 12? Ruler for drawing straight lines and angles. If you have them, also bring a 6? or 6 ?? square ruler, and a small ruler for measuring ?? or ?? x 6? 10. Fabric markers: Water-soluble blue fabric marker, white chalk pencil for dark fabric, and/or a Frixion pen (available at Mill House) Always test the marker on your fabric first. 11. A few sheets of paper for notetaking and pen or pencil. 12. Rotary Cutter and cutting mat for cutting out your tablerunner if you don?t have it cut already. 13. Quilters? Gloves for gripping the fabric (Machingers Quilting Gloves are great and available at the shop.) 14. If you have a Supreme Slider, bring it to class. It is not required but it helps the quilt glide on the bed of your machine. Many of these supplies are available at the shop. Be sure to ask the staff if you need any help. I am very excited about the possibilities for quilting designs that these templates/rulers offer. I can?t wait to share it with you. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me by phone: 608-572-1830 or e-mail Cindy Fenster January 2023
