Third Time’s a Charm

This is my third post this week after how many months’ hiatus? I’m not sure how long we can expect this behavior. Nothing is permanent, my friends.

I just wanted to post this nifty picture. The Squiggy ruler makes a great curved crosshatch border, and it’s very simple. Just keep moving the ruler along the horizontal axis of your border by 1/4″ after each pass. You wind up with a very nice arc of cross hatching. The extra cat hair is a bonus.

In other news, Juki is finally making their clear bowl shaped foot for the longarm commercially available. I’m very excited about getting my hands on it. I spoke with the dealer I bought my longarm from, and they said they’d get back to me. If I don’t hear from them by the end of the day tomorrow, I’ll begin hunting online for it. Whenever possible, I prefer to go through a smaller, independent business, but I’m not very patient. I wan to get last year’s Long Time Gone quilt done, and it’s going to be much easier to tackle with a glide foot.

  1. Hi Cate,
    This looks fabulous! I’m not sure if I’m more drawn to the curved crosshatch or the variegated thread. I would love to try this in my next project. ~smile~ Roseanne
