A friend brought over a lovely 30's Sampler top and asked,
"Can you do this? It is full of stretched bias edges..."
I studied it, petted it, and sketched it.
And then... I stitched it!

recommends a terrific longarm ruler:

It is easy on your hands with the pressure spread out.
I second that recommendation!
