The Master Trainer is the essential tool for doing the Tracing exercises in Free-Motion Mastery in a Month. Use it to learn patterns, develop muscle memory, and coordinate your hands together in parallel motion -- all before you go to the sewing machine to quilt!
Buy the Long size if you will be quilting on large domestic machine, a sit-down longarm or a frame-mounted longarm.
The Master Trainer is actually four tools in one. In addition to using it for the muscle-memory building tracing exercises, use it for:
- Joining Strips & Binding: Use the guide lines to cut strips & binding for assembling your practice blocks “quilt-as-you-go” style into a completed quilt.
- All-Purpose Ruler: Measure anything with the ruler on the straight edge.
- Quilting Ruler: Use different sides to quilt a variety of shapes. The straight edge does straight lines, the C-curve end does small curved grids and block outlines, the S-curve end does wavy lines and the bumpy bottom does clamshells, circles, rick-rack and more. Instructions are in the book and the video class. The ruler is 1/4" thick, which is standard for most ruler work feet.
NOTE: The trainer is clear plastic -- it has been photographed with the white paper insert inside the wrapping in order to show the lines.
