Quilting Rules!

ALFONSINA URIBURU will be making her U.S. debut April – May 2017.

A BERNINA ambassador in Europe, Alfonsina has presented classes in Spain, France and Portugal on ALL brands of sewing machines.
She’s designed and developed her own line of unique quilting rulers and ruler feet, and uses these during her presentations.

She is available to present hands-on or lecture/demo classes (full or half-day) for novice quilters as well
as professional long arm quilters. Students will learn to make different designs with free motion quilting, combining it with ruler work and will create a sampler in little sandwich pieces of fabric.

As an alternative students can make a a Machine cover or work with the Bernina ruler work panel.

Warning: This is not “another free motion quilting class”

Domestic machine quilting is about practice but also understanding of the fillers designs and their distribution in the space.

Skills featured:

How to use rulers for decorative quilting

Explore many design options with rulers for blocks, sashing and borders.

Easier stitch in the ditch, without turning your quilt around in your machine.

This class is based on techniques and not a specific project. I give “as you go” techniques for finishing a sampler design.

In this class we will focus on applying fillers designs and decorative quilting rulers as an allover pattern. Also featuring how to deal with tension problems or stitch length

*Beginner /intermediate quilters.

Bernina panel for ruler work

Since Rulers became more than a tool, designers such as Amanda Murphy discovered the possibilities of ruler work, and she has created a Panel to play around designs with rulers. Totally easy and fun way to explore new skills.

I have my own way to use the rulers on this beautiful panel for quilting with all the rulers and I can show you how easy and fun it can be.

After the 3 hours class you'll get this panel ready to use.

Machine Cover (Hands on)

This is more than an excuse for using all the rulers and having fun with designs like curved crosshatching or waves design.

I explain how to optimize your machine for better results and free motion basics for allover quilting. The machine cover is to be finished and pieced at home with very easy instructions.

Material for a sandwich with a yard of solid fabric folded in a half and batting. (40” x 20”). Same color coordinated polyester thread. And all quilting supplies like gloves, supreme slider, and the ruler kit. A stubble pencil is needed for marking.

Beginners to advanced, all people have fun at this class.
