The past couple days, I’ve been immersed in ruler work on the long arm. I bought the ruler base a month ago, as well as a couple rulers to use with it. Yesterday, I broke down and bought ruler work dvd’s (I’ll do a review once I’ve viewed them all.).
This quilt was made by my friend DeDe (my son’s godmother). It’s for her niece’s wedding, and it matches the invitation. How clever is she? I’ve never been a fan of black, white, & red quilts, until this one. I am in love with it. I even bought a new lamp that happens to match it. I get to enjoy it until Monday when DeDe is back in town. Yea, me!
I cc’d (sorry, but I have no idea what CC stands for) the medium and light squares and stippled the medium rectangles. I left the red alone, and stitched in the ditch around the damask squares. For those of you who long arm, how do you keep your arcs even? I marked the center, but I think in the future, I’ll also make a mark as to how far the arc should be at it’s zenith. (Please forgive my poor terminology, but I don’t know all the correct jargon yet.) I did not use a curved ruler, so I pretty much free-handed the arcs– going up until I hit the center mark, and then going down to the other corner. The next time I do this, maybe I’ll make another mark an inch or so out so that I’ll know how far to go. Man, I’m starting to confuse myself.
