The Groovy Oval has a 1/2" center channel to let you free motion quilt straight lines without veering off track. Or stitch full ovals, shallow arcs, and swags by guiding your ruler foot around the outer edge of the template. Etched 1/4" and 1/2" guides, centering lines, and 30°/45°/60°/90° angles make this a very user-friendly ruler. The removable centering guide even does double duty as a 1/4" seam marker for piecing half square triangles.
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!
