Advanced Ruler Work - Feathers

Suzi Dillinger is returning in the New Year with a fun new class working with rulers – Feathers!

Every quilter loves feathers on a quilt, but is intimidated by them!  Continue your ruler education with an easy to use feather ruler set (9 different feather sizes).  You will learn to do straight or curved stems, a circular wreath, and triangle motifs.  The project will be sampler style on plain solid fabric - no pre-class piecing!

Ruler Work parts 1 and 2 are a prerequisite for this class.


  • Ruler foot for your machine
  • Gina Perkes feather ruler “Rose” (the set of 3 rulers is the best, but the medium size is acceptable for class) ~ Available for purchase from The Sewing Machine Shop
  • Light colored solid fabric for top 30” square
  • Backing – 1 yard
  • Batting cut to approximately the same size as backing (leave a generous border)
  • Spray baste the quilt sandwich before class.
  • Thread in a color that blends with your fabric. (recommend a fine weight thread)
  • Aurifil, Sew Fine, or Bottom line are all good choices
  • Supreme Slider
  • Blue washout marking a pencil
  • Paper scissors, stapler, and (optional) staple puller
  • Lead pencil and a good art eraser
  • Implement to trace an 8 1/2” circle (if you have a ruler, etc. – otherwise you will borrow mine)
  • Quilting gloves
  • Small scissors, seam ripper, general sewing supplies
  • Extended table surface
  • Pillow for chair
  • Sewing machine in good working order

Requirements: A minimum of 3 students are required for this class to be held.
