Quilt Right in the Ditch with the Ditcher Ruler!

Stitching in the ditch is challenging to master, especially with free motion quilting. Now you can quilt perfectly in the ditch, Echo Ditch, and stitch nicely spaced straight lines using the Ditcher Ruler!

The Ditcher Ruler is available in two thicknesses: 1/8-inch for home machines and 1/4-inch for longarms. Not sure which to get? Click Here to contact us for help.

Note: Some home machines like Bernina and Janome are designed to work with the thicker 1/4-inch rulers. If you've purchased rulers in the past, simply measure the thickness to know which works for you.

The Ditcher quilting ruler is specifically designed to help you quilt right in the ditch, travel stitch, and echo ditch. It includes three slots to help you maintain precise control over your quilt so you can control your lines and space them beautifully on your quilts!

How to Quilt in the Ditch with the Ditcher Ruler

Ruler foot quilting is a new way to free motion quilt using rulers or templates to guide the design. Simply position your ruler on your quilt, press it against a ruler quilting foot and gently steer both the quilt and the ruler through your machine.

Be sure to add something grippy to the back of the rulers like True Grips so they don't slip as you guide the quilt and the ruler through the machine.
