Creating with the Wedge Ruler--Leslie Kiger

Leslie Kiger, one of PBQ's many talented members, demonstrated the use of Marilyn Doheny's 9-degree wedge rulers. In the background is Leslie's quilt "Butterfly Bliss," her original design. Leslie sewed strip sets of color into units and then cut wedges from these sets to form her flowers and butterflies. The objects were hand appliqued to the pieced background.
On Wednesday, May 27, Gulf States Quilting Association Circuit Teacher Marilyn Rose, from Jackson, will hold a workshop for Pine Belt Quilters with hands-on teaching of how to use striped fabric and the wedge rulers to create original designs.
