Fundamental Shapes is a multipurpose ruler for free motion quilting straight lines, shallow arcs, and 3/4" diameter circles. Needle alignment tabs make it easy to stitch straight lines up to 8" long without marking. Etched 1/4" guides, a centering line, and 45°/90° angles make this is my go-to for curved crosshatching, piano keys, outlines, and more. Quilt a string of 3/4" pearls, then remove the puzzle piece and switch to quilting a different shape without having to break your thread.
Designed to be used only with a 1/2" diameter RULER QUILTING FOOT (not included) on either domestic or long arm machines. Tell me your sewing machine's make/model so I can make sure you get the right template thickness.
Ruler guided free motion quilting is an exciting technique for sit-down machine quilters. Perfectly straight lines, accurate circles, smooth arcs, minimal marking - what's not to love? I've custom designed my acrylic ruler quilting templates to include all the features that I find most helpful, including different thicknesses to accommodate high or low shank domestic sewing machines. My high shank templates are great on long arm machines, too.
Ever since I started making quilts in 1992, free motion machine quilting has been my favorite part of the process. These days, I teach quilting and one of my specialties is ruler quilting on sit-down/domestic machines. I've designed a series of versatile, multi-purpose ruler quilting templates to help make it your favorite thing, too. Welcome to my online store!
