Gift Ideas for that Special Quilter in Your Life
Quilters Love Perfect Patchwork Templates!
From Marti Michell Perfect Patchwork Templates are actual size templates that include 1/4" seam allowances. They are laser cut from 1/8" thick acrylic with corners that are engineered to make pieces fit perfectly and reduce bulk. Designed for rotary cutting, they can also be traced around for scissor cutting.
• No pinning or guessing required • No more "dog ears" ensnared by the throat plate • No shadowing through light fabrics • No going back after sewing to trim excess bulk – it's trimmed away at the same time the pieces are cut. • The thick acrylic templates mean you can rotary-cut multiple layers of fabric at one time.
Start with Strips
No matter which shape your are cutting, it is most common to first cut a strip that is the same width as one dimension of the template, then use the template to create the desired shape. Much more information can be found in 8342 | Encyclopedia of Patchwork Blocks, Volume 1 >
They are PERFECT for:
• Rotary cutters–Cut multiple layers at one time • Shapes and sizes–Specific-size 1/8-inch thick acrylic pieces. No guessing which line to use on a ruler • 1/4-inch seam allowances already added • Laser cut accuracy on every piece • Corners–Not just blunt but revolutionary double blunt corners engineered for perfect alignment • Permanent identification system • Companion tools for strip cutting and piecing techniques.

A popular teacher, Marti travels extensively, having now taught in 49 states and 26 countries. Look through your library of quilting books and you’ll surely fine on of Marti’s books. At last count, nearly 1.75 million books authored by Marti have been sold. Likewise you undoubtedly have fabric, patterns, or tools that she has designed in your collected sewing materials. Furthermore, Marti’s influence in the quilting industry is enormous. Marti is the recipient of two prestigious quilt industry “lifetime achievement” awards, The Silver Star (2004) and the Michael Kile Award (1991).
I have been using these templates for years and love them. I just finished four 14” Mariner Compass quilts and decided I need more than just the few sets I had. Your templates are AWESOME and make my quilting experiences very enjoyable. I have mainly been quilting only hexagon and octagon patterns (up until the mariner compass), but as you can probably tell by my order, have decided to branch out and expand my experience. I’m a cut and piece quilter and don’t enjoy paper piecing (I don’t really enjoy applique either unless I can piece first), so your templates are absolutely perfect.
Again, thank you so much for your wonderful products and the myriad of ideas you’ve given me.
