Geometric piecing is so much fun! Get this pattern over at The Splendid Sampler. Don’t forget the patterns won’t be available to download forever. So, if you haven’t downloaded them yet, you better get busy. The details are over on their website as to availability, so go check it out!

I decided on lots of straight line quilting and find it is so much easier to use the ruler foot as a guide while stitching. No need to mark the lines when I do it this way. I use small discs cut from template plastic around the foot for different distances from the needle. I didn’t take any photos using them on this particular block, but you can see the discs in use here.

Here’s how I quilted Traveler using my ruler presser foot:

  • Marked and stitched the flower petals in the center square as a focal point.
  • Stitched in the ditch around the center square.
  • Stitched straight lines using the foot only as a measuring guide in the blue squares.
  • Stitched straight lines using the foot with the small disc as a measuring guide in the green sections.
  • Stitched the border design like the other blocks.
