Another idea would be to make the templates nest together. This would allow you to charge less, thereby making them cost effective for the quilter. I.E. circles that have 3, 5 or even 6 nesting in 1 inch increments so you get 3 or 4.

Well, I can see using these puzzle templates to draw around when fussy cutting scenes, photos, large prints...then cut them out with scissors.  Use fusible on the back and put them in blocks or randomly placed on a pieced quilt, use button hole stitch around the raw edge.  Would be cute for elementary kids quilt...school project.  However, the cost for the templates for such a limited type of use may not make it doable.

Here is a version of  "Stitch in the Ditch"  1/4" inset on one side and 1/2" on the other with a 9" ruler. This seems to be popular as I just put it out after she finished it and have already sold a few! Let me know if you have other ideas for different versions of it.

As Always, THANKS!

Dennis

PS: Thanks for those of you "Liking" us on Facebook. Remember there is a prize drawing just for that!

Look like fun to me, but the larger one is too large for my taste.

Duckie, really close to perfect. Love the option of 1/2 inch and 1/4 inch. The only thing I'd do different is put the measurement registrations on both sides.

Hey all,
We got a request for a special design/order of templates that is used to make a quilt that looks like the antique ones selling on eBay for hundreds of dollars. The idea is that the "spoke" parts go together with the same color fabric as the square next to it. The ones I saw look pretty cool. The customer is going to make and photograph a square for me to use as an example since I cannot find one in the public domain. (Unless one of you has one :)) The set is used to make a 7" finished square.

Let me know what you think. Good Luck in the contest and be sure to like us on Facebook for the other item entry.

Have a nice Saturday (or Sunday depending where you are!) Fortunately, it is sunny and warm here.

Dennis

that is really a nice one. I wouldn't have thought to use the tumbler template in that way.

I like it though.  Get rid of the 4 corners and you could make a fabric bowl..... I think?  I've not made one, but have seen them and this looks like the ones I've seen.

QM, I would like making the PP one better. I'm okay with that method, but I know some people would rather use templates.

I agree on paper piecing that one, although a transparent template would be good if you wanted to do fussy cutting on the pattern.  

Alternately, one can get the pattern by drawing an octagon, adding right triangles for the corners and drawing the 4 diagonals.

I guess the only difference is the little center the templates have. Which for me is a good thing, fewer points to mess up! LOL Very nice design Duck.


Marynel, I love how you always say "one can simpy". Nothing like that is ever simple for me. Just tickles me each time cause I know it is me not the math.  lol!

TMQ, If I were doing this with a protractor or compass, it would NOT be simple. I used QuiltPro to create an octagon, then did the rest.
