Today I spent some time playing with my new quilting ruler/templates. Here is what I came up with using the Wave ruler. I cut two pieces of fabric (sorry they are both yellow, one should have been darker for contrast,duh) with one straight edge and one wavy edge. Then I machined them together. The first photo shows how I sewed the straight edge of one piece to the top piece, using one straight line of stitching sewn on the other (wrong) side.
The second photo shows how I used zig zag, then blanket stitch to join the same fabrics, but by sewing on the wavy edge of the top fabric.
Then I cut two more pieces and sewed them together on the straight edge. I just wanted to see what I could do, that gives me ideas of what I might achieve using better coloured fabric and various stitching.
Then I played with my Scalloped edge ruler.
I'm glad I stayed to watch Robyn, the demonstrator, as this was a bit more tricky. I made a scalloped edge using different fabrics the way she showed. It makes a lovely edge and I think I might use this for a cushion. I took a photo of the cushions she had made, and I'll post one here.
So this is my scalloped edge.
