Ruler Work Wintercourse!!!!

Won’t you join me online for a ruler work winter course this January?!  I don’t know about you, but I am a “winter-hater.”  I’ve tried to talk myself into liking winter many times over the years, but there’s no getting around it, it’s a totally awful time of year for me.  The best way to get through it is to keep busy with as many things as possible that are fun, and let’s face it, ruler work is fun!  I’m going to have a mini-ruler work course on my blog for the month of January.  Join me every Monday and Friday for a post about some topic in ruler work and we’ll get started on January 1!  I’ll be teaching this from the standpoint of a sit-down push-through quilter, but the info will be useful even if you’re working on a frame system.  Spread the word to all your friends and meet back here at the blog for some useful FREE information about ruler work quilting!  (I mean come on…”wintercourse” rhymes with “intercourse,” so it can only be  a good time!)


Did I forget to mention that this is FREEEEEE??!!!

  2. Sandy Says:

    This sounds like fun! 🙂 Is there a supply list?

  3. Suzy Webster Says:

    My ruler foot and I are not well acquainted…I guess we better fix that LOL

  4. Karin Says:

    Sounds like fun…I’ll be there. Have been practicing more lately and am getting better. This will be a nice extension.

  5. Diane Evans Says:

    I’ll be there! Are there specific rulers that we should have to help us on our way?


  6. Peggy Carstens Says:

    Great idea!

  7. Louann Holmes Says:

    Looking forward to it.

  8. Susan Says:

    I have a quilt that I started practicing ruler work on it. I will love the chance to finish it with your help! Thank you.

  9. Robbi Imhoff Says:

    This sounds great Patsy. Can’t wait for your first post.

  10. Kathy Steigleder Says:

    Oh wow, this is great! I too have been practicing with rulers, can’t wait to join in. Will you post what rulers we’ll be using sometime this month?

  11. Pat Says:

    I’m with you, I hate winters, but probably from a different reason. I shared a bedroom with my younger sister growing up, and every winter froze my behind off. She LOVED winter and always slept with the window wide open in winter. Brrrrr. Her kids report she still does it.

  12. Linda E in AZ Says:

  15. Hettie Pringle Says:

    It will be magical (or hell hot) summer in Central South Africa, so I’d definitely be doing this, just to be indoors at the aircon!

    Thanks for doing this!

  16. Nancy Oberholtzer Says:

    I would love this class, count me in

  17. Harlene Krans Says:

    I’m so excited. I just discovered your site and blog. I just ordered your suspension system and starter ruler pack and ready to go. I’ll surely be here for the wintercourse.

    BTW I also grew up east of Cleveland, Oh (Ashtabula). and lived many, many years in Medina. I’m now a Florida resident.

  18. Linda Lord Says:

  19. Linda Lord Says:

    Happy New Year!
    I have been searching for the Winter Course January 2018 ruler work lessons that were to start today. I can’t seem to find it. Could you possibly point me in the right direction. I am using an iPad not sure if that is the problem. Thanks for doing this, I am not a fan of winter either.
