I am a tool person and so is my husband, so he would let me buy anything that was a tool. He is a machine repairman, and he knows that the right tool can make a huge difference. I made my first quilt with a homemade cardboard template. We have come a long way since then.
I did a quick check on the template inspired quilts I am piecing. I have taken the double wedding ring out of the box again and I have several of these parts I need to make.
I have been cutting 2 1/2 in tumbler blocks again. They are just cute.
work has stopped on oriental pinwheels
I have all the blocks ready for scrappy twinkle
and I have not decided on fabric choices for drops of jupiter.
I think I am not a template sewer, but just a quick check around my room, and I found all these quilts started or using templates. And I am sure there are more I just didn't see.
benefit - I am not interested in buying anymore templates as long as I am doing this challenge.
