If you already have a couple of quilting rulers,templates and other tools don’t you think it’s time to make them a case. Here’s the solution! Let’s get into the details. With this “Stitching with friends” pattern you can make a perfect ruler case for your tools. Let’s see what it’s like.
About the “Stitching with friends” ruler case
Here you can find what we can keep in it. The measurements and materials to make it.
What’s the rule case like?
The ruler case has two large pockets. The right side is divided into two parts. The division on the right side can be done as you need it. In addition the pot on the left side is another pocket.
The rules case is 27 cm wide and 36 cm high (10 1/2″ x 14″). The closure is with two multicolored strips. The flaps close with magnet.
What do we keep in the “Stitching with friends” rule case?
The Rules case is designed to store various quilting accessories.
In the left pocket we can store:
- an 8″x11″ cutting mat
In the right pocket we can store:
- a quilting ruler of 6″x12″
- other smaller rules
TIPP: Keep all the small things in the pot pocket.
Materials we use for ruler case
The dark fabrics we use are Japanese fabrics. It certainly looks very nice to use dark fabrics as a background. Not only does it stand out but it also brings to life the other colors. For the applique and for hexagons we use a mixture of styles of:
- romantic fabrics,
- country and
- Japanese ones.
The important thing is that the tones always have thesame strength. However, in this variety of colors we use it would not stick, for example, the pastel colored fabrics. Nor sticks the fabrics with very strong and squeaky colors.
TIPP: Before you start pile up the scraps you want to use and check if they stick to each other.

- The front is an image made with apliqué. In most cases, we apply it with Apliquick. Since with the Apliquick method we can make small pieces as in this image.
We have a video that introdice you the appliqué technique with Apliquick in case you don’t know it.
- The back is with hexagons. In the pattern we explain step by step how to make hexagons, you will also find a template that you only have to print and cut. You don’t have to draw so many hexagons. If you like hexagons you can see the rest of our patterns that include them.
