Playing with Sidekick Ruler

Wednesday, July 9th, 2014

Fabrics and Friends Quilt Shoppe of Roanoke, IN recently received their shipment of Jaybird Quilts Sidekick Ruler and several patterns featuring the ruler. Julie Herman, the designer, has once again produced a ruler for accurate cutting and piecing. The two patterns I used are both very well written, easy to understand, and make for quick cutting and accurate piecing. The ruler gives you 3 shapes that can be cut into 4 different sizes. And it can be used as a companion ruler with Julie’s popular Hex N More Ruler.

I’m taking Creative Quilting with Your Walking Foot Craftsy Class with Jacquie Gering. The Giggles quilt above is the second quilt I have finished with her walking foot techniques. Fun class! And I’m so happy to have a completed project!

First Finish in 2014

Here is my first completed quilt for the new year. Toes In the Sand Pattern by Jaybird Quilts¬†using the Hex N More Ruler. Love Julie’s ruler. Julie’s patterns are very well written with clear and easy to follow directions and diagrams. I was very happy that all the points in the blocks matched up so perfectly. The Hex N More Ruler is designed ¬†including four shapes, each with four sizes, all in one ruler. The shapes are triangles, hexagons, half hexagons, and diamonds.

I used all Batiks for this quilt.

Close up of a few blocks.

I love the Moda Batik for the back, and also the All-In-One Flange Binding made with left overs from the pieced blocks.

This quilt is being offered as a Block of the Month at Fabrics and Friends Quilt Shop in Roanoke, IN.
