The last week or two I've been working with these beautiful Oakshott cottons. This commission piece uses the Lakes collection, the Ruby Reds collection and the two greys in the Scandinavian collection.
I wanted short sections of straight line quilting. To achieve this, I used my new BERNINA 72 foot for ruler work. It is similar to the darning foot but the ring surrounding the needle is high enough to slide next to a thick ruler. I have used rulers before when I had my longarm machine so I was familiar with the process. Using the rulers on the domestic machine is different but by the time I finished the quilt I had it mastered! I know I'll be doing more ruler work on my domestic machine in the future.
