Quilting Perfect Curves and Straight Lines with Rulers – Quilting Nightshade

I wanted to do something special with Nightshade, our latest Stashin’ with Stephanie fat quarter quilt pattern that features lots of squares.

One of my go-to ways to make the quilt piecing stand out is to quilt the background with a different texture than the fat quarter fabrics.

For Nightshade I chose to quilt curves within the fat quarter fabrics, and straight lines in the background. I love the texture the combo makes.

This is an abbreviated version of our full tutorial where I cover how to use circle rulers to create perfect curves, figure out a path where you have minimal thread breaks, and use straight rulers to create perfectly straight lines and follow the markings on the rulers to create consistent spacing.

You can watch the entire, commercial-free version where we skip all the YouTube ads and Stashin’ with Stephanie promo on our new Quilt Addicts Anonymous Academy. You can also watch bonus content, like the raw, real-time footage of me quilting so you can see exactly how I made my way across the entire quilt.
