Barbara made this beautiful Kim Diehl runner, it’s called Hen House Star and she used Kim’s fabrics, too.
Barbara wanted wool batting, so I used Hobbs Wool. I also used a 30 tex Perma Core A&E thread, my most favorite yellow cream...Dyed Natural.
I knew I wanted to quilt an orange peel in the center part, so I used my 4” Circle2 machine quilting circle ruler, to quilt them. The design of the ruler makes it easy to rotate around the hopping foot to get to the next spot.
They are available in clear and green 1/4” high quality acrylic, and come in a set of 6. Ranging in size 2” to 13”. They can be found here: https://www.quiltingit.com/shop?category=Rulers
I’ve been asked a few times lately the difference between the clear and green sets of rulers??? Everything is the same, except the color. So, it’s really a matter of preference. The green are a better option to see the ruler lines on lighter fabrics. If you’re used to using clear, great!! I actually use both.
I also used an 8” Edge ruler, from Linda at thequiltedpineapple.com, to quilt the lines in the star. I freehand quilted circles and feathers in the background parts along the border.
I have some fun quilts coming up!! So excited to show you.
If you’ve baught a set of my Circle2 (Circle Squared) rulers, I’d love to share some pictures or feedback. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with “ruler feedback” in the subject line. I’d love to share pictures of your quilting, of course you’ll get credit. I’ve already seen some work that Sue Daurio has done with her set. Thank you sooo much!!
Happy Quilting, - Leisha
