I have always enjoyed working with wedge rulers as there are so many design options. In the late nineties and early twenties I used to teach classes using the 9 degree wedge ruler. Move on to 2012 and I am now updating this class using the Matilda’s Own Dresden Wedge rulers. They come 2 in a pack and are good value. One ruler will give you 20 wedges per circle, while the other will give you 16.
You are not limited to making Dresden Plates alone with these rulers. I have been working on a range of different designs for the workshop I will be conducting in Esperance next week.
As I have been stitching these designs, my mind has been flooded with several more designs, so I will be playing around over the next few days and hopefully get some posted.
Below is a picture of the Spinning Wheel design
Another design is the Fluted Wheel which has to be one of my favourites and so easy and quick to sew. I am going to make a table runner from these samples below.
