I bought a new free-motion foot for my Juki sewing machine. I use my Juki all the time for free motion stitching, when I'm home. My Juki is a domestic straight stitch machine.
This new foot will let me use straight and curved rulers as a guide when free motion stitching. I borrowed my friend Lee's new rulers for a little practice. I think I'm going to really like this for a bit of a change. I enjoyed the circle template more than I thought I would...actually, I loved it.
I have some straight and curved rulers on order with Diane at Country Crafts. I'm making a few table runners to practice on when the rulers come in.
Notice the long straight lines that form a star in my sample. I've used the ruler as a guide and stitched free motion. And look at the perfect circles. All this was done with the feed dogs down. In between using rulers, I just free motioned like normal to fill in the spaces. No changing feet.
I've bound my practice sample.. I'm sure some cat somewhere would love to lay on this.
