Ruler Work Basics is designed to give you the knowledge to start using rulers and upgrade your free motion quilting abilities. We will do a variety of blocks and shapes to help gain the confidence needed to quilt your next quilt with precision and accuracy. Sara will also explain how to pick a ruler work design for your project.
