Stunning Straight Edge-No handle

Watch Tutorial


High Shank free motion quilting Ruler. Stunning straight edge! I have modified the ruler to better work for all of your marking and quilting needs! the ruler is 9" long by 2" wide and 1/4 inch thick I love this ruler because it makes it easy to follow quilting lines and designs with its tint that glows with little light.. making it easy to follow the marking guides on light AND dark fabrics.


#10 Curved Ruler

The quilted Pineapple #10 is 10" wide. This ruler is fantastic for for blocks and varying border designs, and is incredibly helpful in stitching circles and curves with ease. great base for marking larger feather motifs and getting those feather spines and border swags stitched with ease! Ruler is thick and can be used on Domestic or Lonagarm Machines.

Ruler is 1/4" thick and can be used on Domestic or Lonagarm Machines. Rulers have the same degree curve along the top and bottom; what this means for you when quilting, is that you can easily switch directions while quilting without having to switch hands for holding. The etched 1/4" registration marks won't wear off like printed on lines can features a green tinted acrylic which allows for better sight of ruler and registration markings on all colors of fabric, where as white lines may get lost when trying to see and line up registration marks on white and light fabrics) So many wonderful features you'll wonder why you didn't invest in these rulers sooner!
