Q: What size ruler do you recommend for my machine?
If you are quilting on a longarm (frame system) any size ruler will work well. If you are quilting with a mid-arm, a large sit-down machine, or most sit-down machines with a throat space of 9” or more, the small to mid-size rulers are suggested. Quilters with throat spaces in 7” or 8” should use the smaller rulers due to space restrictions of your machine.
Q: Do I need a special foot on my machine to do ruler or template work?
Yes, to prevent damage to your machine from a ruler accidentally sliding over or under your regular foot, a ruler foot should be used.
