Meet Elvira, your new favorite curvy ruler!

She not only looks beautiful, she’s quite handy when quilting wavy lines or continuous curve lines. Elvira can quilt multiple arcs in multiple directions without rotating your quilt (or working from the back of your foot)!

Use her for:

  • Quilting continuous curve blocks (2” squares are her specialty!)
  • Adding a series of curves along a row of blocks
  • Quilting all sides of a square, no matter what foot you use!

Meet Chevy, a machine quilting ruler from Creative Grids®, and designed by Angela Walters. Chevy is a little pointy, a little curvy, and very versatile. With both a straight side and a curvy side, there are so many ways that this tool can help you improve your quilting!

Use the straight side for:

  • Stitching in the ditch and echoing
  • Turning the corner without rotating the ruler
  • Echo two sides of a block easily without marking the pivot point
  • Adding chevron designs all over a quilt, or as a border
  • Crosshatching is now a breeze!

Use the curvy side for:

  • Adding a subtle, curvy line
  • Stitching offset, rounded rectangles by changing direction
  • Creating a modern, all over wavy design
  • Fun quilt motifs for blocks
  • Segmenting borders

This gal is the complete package! She even convinced me that I could machine quilt – and I actually can with her tools. Why don’t you give it a try???
