Have you heard about the Ruler of the Month Club? We are on round 4 starting this month (January 2019)! The HQ Ruler of the Month club is a great way to challenge your quilting skills and build ruler work confidence. Each month in the six-month series features a debut acrylic ruler paired with mentorship from your local shop, step-by-step video instruction and design ideas. You get exclusive access to a brand new ruler, and at a discounted price! And you will receive a special club member gift.

You can get involved at your local HQ retailer shop and learn along with fellow quilters, or if you don’t have a nearby retailer you can participate by mail. You can find a participating retailer here. Simply add your zip code and check the box for Ruler of the Month. If you are too far away or cannot visit the shop, simply call one of the retailers closest to you and inquire whether they provide a “by Mail” option. Many (but not all) do.

I am writing about the HQ ROTM4 because it is really special! These rulers are something you have never seen before. You can create amazing, perfect designs with this new technique. Handi Quilter has teamed up with Leonie West to create these new exciting rulers and this round you will get your club gift first thing, since it is a tool you can use along with the rulers.

Here’s a preview of the rulers:

They look a bit strange, but you won’t believe the amazing things you can do with them!  Here’s just one example of a design created with January’s Ruler:

So COOL! and So Easy to do. I wish I could show you more because each design is cooler than the last. But that’s for club members only.

So take my word for it, you do NOT want to miss this ROM Club 4!
