FMQ

Free-motion quilting is something that I still find very difficult. I can FMQ small things, but anything larger than a place mat is beyond me. I  have made sandwich blocks for practice, and I try to practice at least 3 days out of the week. Lori Kennedy at Inbox Jaunt, provides great FMQ tutorials on her blog. Recently, I started viewing tutorials on how to use FMQ rulers.
Today, I visited the Austin Sewing and Quilt Shop. I purchased my Juki sewing machine at this shop, so I went to ask about the FM ruler foot for the Juki. The shop will be having lessons on using the ruler foot in January. I do not know enough about the effectiveness of using a ruler for quilting. Before I go through the expense involved in using a ruler for FMQ, I was wondering if anyone could share their thoughts and experience.
I spent the morning watching Hallmark Christmas movies and painting more seasonal rocks.
