I didn't have the same ruler, and actually the ruler I had was an Olfa shaped like a trapezoid: one end straight with the other at an angle. I used the 4" line I thought mine looked different. Also, I didn't have the contrast in the blue strips I would have liked in the pile scraps which is what I used. This was my practice one. I practiced straight lines around the border with decorative stitching on the edge. I stitched in the ditch around the darker braid edge, and practiced free motion pebbles to fill in the light. But I had already done the binding before I decided to do this, so with the variety of quilting stitches it came out wavy. I used it on the TV table in the grandchildren's bonus room. I'll try to post a pic. Now that I have learned all these lessons I will cut strips from some of my yardage or buy a new jelly roll just for a quilt with braids.
