My New Toy & May's OMG

Joy! Joy! Joy!

I bought myself an exciting new toy.
Amy of Amy's Quilting Adventures has been telling us not to use our cutting rulers for ruler work.  
Sunny told me about the Line Tamer Ruler .  

I found this different brand one at my local quilt shop.   
I love how my motion quilting foot fits inside and I can easily use it to make straight lines. (Although honestly mine will ever so often get a little wiggle!)  I just need more practice.

It's just the right size - both in length - as it fits in my domestic machine throat.
  And the width is just right. Easy to hold.   
The ruler markings help keep it lined up without any fuss. 
I have all the foundation quilting done (all the stitch in the ditch).

My May OMG is to do the gold stars. 
Here's the quilt on my dinning room table - it's a poor quality picture as the morning sunlight was streaming in.

I can't wait to start! See you all over at Elm Street Quilts.

Happy Sewing, 


  1. We all love 'new' tools-glad you found something new to play with--have fun--

  2. That sounds like a wonderful tool. The gold and black star quilt is going to be beautiful.


  3. Yeh! great work on the quilting.
    I've never used rulers to quilt, maybe I should try one!

  4. Ruler work sounds fun. Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and good luck with your project.

  5. Ah this looks like an excellent new toy. I love how the stars in your quilt stand out - a lovely colour choice x
