Another Ruler Work Border Design

I can’t stop playing with this stuff!  This design couples curves and straight line quilting in the same border swag design.  It starts out as a basic arched swag border design with a scant 1/4 inch channel.  I used my PTD 12 arc ruler for this.  The next step is to add the straight line channels and I used the PTD straight lie ruler for that.  There is a 1/4 inch channel, then a 1/2 inch channel, then another 1/4 inch channel.  In this next shot, you can see the framework in one arched swag and the beginning of the fill-in work on the other:
You can see that I swapped thread colors as I moved to a new zone.  That’s not necessary but I am a thread lover so it adds to the fun of stitching this stuff out.  In this next shot, you can see that more fill-in work is done:
…and then the final fill-in is added and I used my original thread color for the final section:
(Sorry about the colors changing.  The final shot is the “real color.”)

    Hi Patsy– I haven’t taken the time to thank you for the wonderful class you led in Michigan. It was a fantastic day. I have shared my accomplishments from the class with many of my quilting friends and they are really impressed. I can’t believe what I sewed that day either. All turned out fantastic thanks to your excellent teaching. Please let me know if you will be in Michigan again as I would like to learn more. Robbi Imhoff
