This class was GREAT for Beginning Ruler Quilters. Debby had helpful tips for each design how to hold the ruler, how to mark your quilt so your design stitches where you want it, and which direction might be best for quilting on a domestic machine. As always, Debby is very pleasant to listen to, and you can always speed things up if your browser will let you increase the speed of the playback.
