  • I have really enjoyed this series. I did notice that the Area 11 video is not complete. It stops at the beginning of the second part of the last motif. Hope this will be fixed and made available.
    I had also hoped that the other rulers in the Bernina set would be demonstrated. Hope that this in the works for further tutorials. I love the way Amanda explains and demonstrates the techniques.

  • I am using the Westalee 4″ arc ruler for lessons 11 and 12, but can’t figure out how to make the full circle for lesson 13. The biggest circle template I have is 2″ and it’s an inside circle, not outside like you are using Amanda. Can you help me? Is there a different ruler I can use?

    • Unfortunately the 4” arc doesn’t work like a full 4” circle would, so you might have to significantly modify the design if you want to use that ruler. Or make up another design. That being said, I know Westalee makes a 4” circle tool. I think it is part of their Simple Circles line.

      • Hi Amanda, Well, I finally did figure out how to use the 4″ arc to make the complete circles. I just made an extra mark on each line at the 2″ place and then flipped the arc over carefully lining it up. Worked just fine this way. I really enjoyed making this sampler. I look forward to more projects that you share here. Thanks!!

    • Wanted to say that an inside circle versus an outside circle doesn’t really matter as long as it quilts a circle that is 4”. Of course, you might have to align it a bit differently if it was an inside circle but it will still have 90 degree markings, etc. The arc makes a great curve, but doesn’t have these markings.

  • I just got a Bernina Ruler Foot and set of rulers. I just finished you 4 part sew along for ruler work. Thanks so much. It was much easier watching the videos as I went along. Vickie

  • Hi Amanda,
    I have a new-to-me Bernina Q20 sit-down quilter and have been trying to learn ruler work and free motion quilting. This series has been wonderful and I have enjoyed trying all the quilting ideas. Thank you for this!

  • Hi! Amanda,

    So…… can I avoid (or what am I doing wrong) my initial thought is I’m putting too much pressure between the ruler and foot. …..I have a Bernina 820 and the ruler foot…I’ve not used it much because have found more than once that as I raise the pressure foot to remove the quilt or change the bobbin etc, that the foot actually falls off. And yes, I hate to say it, this has happened while stitching, which freaked me out as I think I’ve killed my machine, though it recovered itself. This hasn’t happened for any other foot. Even when sewing bags and stitching over lots of layers. I’m thinking of going to your ruler work class in the PNW at Quality Sewing and vacuum but would hate to hurt one of the beautiful machines they let use use in class, if it is something in my technique.
