Use Templates to Make Quilts in Love of Quilting

This is the conversion information for the patchwork quilts in this month's issue that have patterns the same size as one of our templates. All of our templates are identified by number or letter. Numbers in the diagrams refer to a specific template. Follow the instructions in the magazine, substituting the following information where it applies.

Bunny Hop Page 22 My Favorite Squaring Up Ruler or 8" x 24" Mitering Ruler and Set B

Cut 6 1/2" strips. Measure with either ruler. After sewing, measure 4 1/2" with Set B, Template #8.

1930s Flower Basket Page 30 Set A

This is based on making 1 1/4" squares and half-square triangle pairs with an equal frame. I would use Set A Templates #5 and #6 to make 1 1/2" squares and triangles. Then reduce the frame to a scant 1/2" all around. The block should be just right to finish at 11 1/4".

Set A, Set B and 3" x 18" My Favorite Ruler

Our 3" x 18" ruler will come in handy for measuring some of the smaller pieces.

We can help you make the 9" and 12" blocks. (Note: Template Set C expands the versatility of Template Set A with additional shapes. Sets B and D also complement each other. This is why templates are needed from 2 sets/block size.)
