New Angela Wolf & Martelli Ruler Sets

I am so excited to announce my new ruler set designed by Martelli.  In case you are new to Martelli, they are a family owned business located in Florida.  I have been testing some of their products the last few months and I am so excited to share!!! First off, their cutting system is amazing!  I absolutely LOVE their templates and I had to have my own. Regardless if I am sewing knits, bias trim, jean belt loops, bias binding ~ I choose my 5 top widths that I am always cutting and packaged them into the new Angela Wolf Mini-Ruler Extension Kit

Sticking to the project

Now, why would I use these templates and not a standard quilters ruler?  Of course, I will end up using both, but these templates have a rubber base.  The template holds the fabric in place and makes it easy to cut with your rotary cutter. Catch my Behind the Scenes show showing how I cut my neckline for the Shirley Wrap Top.

Pre-Order Today

The new rulers are in production as we speak.  If you would like to reserve the first batch off the cutting table be sure to pre-order today.  The rulers are made in the USA and will shipped from my studio as soon as they are hot off the press! 

Pre-Order today and get 15% OFF with coupon code: SNOW15

 

Leave a Comment for a Chance to Win a My First Set of Rulers 

If you would like to win a set of rulers click here to officially enter and  get an extra entry if you leave a comment below to let me know what you will cut with your new rulers.  You can also leave a comment on Facebook and Instagram for extra chances to win.  I will draw 1 random winner on Behind the Scenes live Facebook and YouTube show Wednesday, February 23rd at 1:30pm Eastern /10:30am Pacific.  Good luck!

If you have already sewn up the Shirley top or dress be sure to share photos and I will feature you on the show.

Quick Table Runner Instructions

Fabric Requirements:

a. Center fabric: Sew together seven of the quilted blocks
made in the 7 7/8 x 14 in hoop. Five of the blocks will have
the applique design and the two ends will be background fill
only. Stitch the blocks together with a ¼ seam allowance so
that you have 1 long piece approximately 54 in long x 14 in
wide. Trim to approximately 12.5 in wide.
(Alternatively you can cut 1 at 12.5 in X 54 in and embellish
later with HTV, etc.)
b. Border/Back fabric: Cut 1 at 24 in x 54 in

Construction:

a. Sew the center fabric to the border/back fabric on both
sides, right sides together to make a long tube. Trim the
ends so that everything is the same length.
b. Turn right sides out and press, keeping the border sections
evenly matched on both sides of the center panel.
c. Fold fabric tube in half, right sides together and stitch
together on each end.
d. Turn corners out to reveal a finished triangle shape at each
end.
e. If not using quilt blocks for the center panel, embellish as
desired.

1 + 2 =

Instructions

1) With the ScanNCut, choose the Christmas tree, pattern AR-I013, and change the Height to
6” (keeping it proportional so the Width will be 5.39”, which is fine).
2) Apply Brother Iron-On Fabric applique Contact Sheet to the wrong side of your chosen
fabrics. You may choose the same fabric for the tree and trunk or choose different fabrics. It’s
totally up to your imagination!
3) Lay the prepared fabric RIGHT SIDE DOWN on the Fabric Mat (the adhesive side will be up)
and cut out the tree and trunk using the fabric blade. Set these pieces aside for now.
4) In the 10 5/8” hoop, hoop the tearaway stabilizer, batting and your background fabric. Slide
the hoop into the machine and go to My Design Center. Choose the stamps/shapes key and
choose a square shape. Select “Size” and proportionally change the square to 10.25”. Touch
“ok”.
5) Go to the Region Properties menu and touch the last design. Then press “select”. This will
open a new menu to select different fill stitches. Choose the pattern you’d like to use on your
background (I chose pattern 034). Touch “ok”. Keep the color as red. Touch “ok”. Select the fill
bucket and then touch inside the square on the screen. Your design should now appear on the
screen.
6) Touch the Line Properties menu and choose the option to not stitch then touch “ok.
7) Touch the fill bucket then touch the outside line of the square then select “next”. Turn the
outline off if it is turned on. Change the size to 200%. Change to a single line of stitching
instead of a triple line.
8) Touch “Set” then “OK” in the pop-up. Touch “Embroidery”.
9) Select your thread and stitch the design. I chose a gold metallic thread as that color is found
in my border fabric, plus it adds another layer of sparkle.
10) When the stitching is completed, remove the stitched fabric from the hoop and trim to 10”
square.
11) Finding the center of the stitched fabric, place your cut tree and trunk pieces on the
background and carefully press them down to secure them to the background. Make sure to
follow your adhesive manufacturers instructions for fusing and iron temperatures.
12) Now you can embellish your tree and trunk however you like. I chose to do a blanket stitch
around the tree and trunk, added decorative stitching to represent garland (stitch 3-07) and
added some sparkly rhinestones but feel free to decorate your tree however you wish.
13) Now you want to add your borders. Start with the left and right sides and sew the short
pieces to the sides using a ¼” seam and press the seams toward the borders. Sew the long
pieces to the top and bottom using a ¼” seam and press so that the seams are toward the
borders.
13a) Choose the 10 5/8” square hoop and hoop your project using tearaway stabilizer
centering your design as best you can.
14) Touch the Home key and go to your main menu. Touch “Embroidery”. Touch the pocket
icon. If you’ve loaded the design into your memory then touch the sewing machine icon. If you
have the design loaded onto a USB stick, insert the stick into your machine and press the USB
icon. Choose the b pocket. Touch the globe and base design and press “Set”. Then touch
“Embroidery”.
15) Touch the icon that looks like a camera with fabric behind it and touch “Scan”. This will
scan your hoop for placement of the design.
16) Once you have the picture of what’s in your hoop on your screen, touch “Layout” then
press “Rotate”. This will open a menu where you have rotational tools at the top of the menu
and arrows to move your design at the bottom of the menu. Use these tools to move your
design where you want it making sure the satin stitching on the globe base will not stitch over
the seam where you pieced the bottom border. Set the bottom of your base just above that
seam.
17) Once you are satisfied with the placement of your globe and base you are ready to start
stitching. Touch “Layout” to close that menu and you should see a preview window with the
steps to the design just underneath it.
18) Run step one and this will stitch a placement stitch for your vinyl. Once the stitching is
done, place your vinyl square over the circle you just stitched. Make sure the vinyl covers the
entire circle. Double check the top to make sure the vinyl will be caught in the stitching
otherwise your embellishments will fall out from the top. Once you’ve placed your vinyl down,
tape it down to secure it making sure the tape won’t get caught in the stitching.
19) Run step two which will stitch over the vinyl securing it to your project. Once this step is
complete, remove the tape and trim around the globe close to the stitching being careful not
to cut the stitching.
20) Fill the globe with whatever embellishments you choose. I chose some sequins and stars.
Please note: Less is more. If you over fill the globe, you will lose the design. You only need a
small teaspoon of material to make it look great. You are wanting the effect of snow, not a
blizzard.
21) Shake the globe so all the embellishments are toward the top of the globe.
22) Place your globe base applique material just under the globe. Run step 3 to stitch it down
then trim close to the stitching.
23) Run step 4 to satin stitch around the globe base.
24) Now it’s time to quilt on the borders. Use whatever method or technique you choose. I
chose to use the Quilt Sashing technique that is built-in to the Luminaire. I also added some
free-motion stitching to the border as well.
25) Bind your wall-hanging with the fabric of your choice and you are done

      14. Save in memory as a separate step

Bring each step over to Embroidery and save in Memory
