Cathy Persson Workshop

Bluffton Library, 120 Palmetto Way, Bluffton

10:00 am to 4:00 pm

Quilting with Rulers

The Workshop starts with sewing with straight and curved rulers on a nine patch sample. Next you will practice marking blocks and borders to create a more intricate design.

Finally, you will be designing a quilt pattern for large blocks/whole cloth/mandalas, including marking and ruler selection.

Cathy will demo other style rulers. Members can bring any rulers they may want to play with.

You will need a few sandwiches of fabric, batting, backing, basted together. Use light color fabrics and bring contrasting threads, so you can see your quilting.

Two nine patch sandwiches, using 6” solid pieced blocks or use an 18” block with a nine patch of 6” blocks stitched on it (use matching thread). Plus one 12” to 18” sandwich of a mandala or solid fabric. Hand dyes work great for this style.  Cathy will have hand dyed solids and dyed mandalas available for purchase.

You will need a Ruler Foot for your machine. Check with your dealer or get one from Nancy’s Notions. Bernina owners, newer machines have a Bernina ruler foot option, but older models need a low shank ruler foot and a Bernina adapter, available at Nancy’s Notion.

If you have rulers, great. If you don’t, Cathy is working on getting a straight and a curve ruler set for the course.  One Straight and one curved ruler will give you plenty of options for the class.

More info on rulers will be available next month.
