I like to quilt using a smaller ruler most of the time, but I have learned that there are times that a longer ruler works better.
However, there are a few tricks to using this longer ruler!!
Let me back up……
I have finally decided how to quilt the “woodpile” quilt top that I presented last week. You guys had fantastic ideas and I decided that I would turn the three small triangles into one BIG triangle…..
I still have NO idea what I am going to do after I finish all of these triangles, but that is another story.
BUT, as I was happily quilting away, I found myself feeling hungry and wishing for a hamburger. Then I realized that I was quilting the “Whataburger” Hamburger chain logo…..
Yes, everytime we visit Texas, there is at least ONE Whataburger photo!!
Okay…back on track now.
I did a short video to give a few tips for using these longer rulers……
Do you have long rulers that you have found helpful? Please let me know which ones they were!!
