The Craft of Quilt Templates
How to make templates
Templates are patterns so to speak, only with templates you cut the
materials you need from strong fabrics. Otherwise, if you were making
patterns you would cut the templates from ordinary paper.
At what time you create templates, you are making your quilt making
process easier. The surface patterns will flow consistently as well.
You can use your created templates and trace along your patterns,
instead of pinning graphing paper to your quilt material. You can
purchase ready-made templates, however if you create your own you will
save money. You can purchase transparent plastics at craft stores, or
stores that carry supplies, such as craft, paper, pencils, etc. If you
choose plastic, you will need to individually, trace your patterns. You
will need allowance for your seams. After you create your patterns, cut
your templates. The plastic templates are ideal for making larger
Straight grains make up woven textiles. The grain lines run comparably
along the edges of the non-fraying edges in the materials. Across the
“straight grain,” is another line known as the “cross grain.” Crafters
use the term to define the lines, such as “Fabric on the grain.” You
will need to eliminate the edges, by cutting it off.
The non-frayed edges are makes up the areas that have not been cut, especially around the label and the snug woven areas.

copies and play with the patterns until you achieve your desired mark.
Once you achieve your patterns add numbers and/or letters to mark your
pattern. This will help you remember where each template goes. Next,
you will cut your pattern parts out, using common scissors. Cut the
outside areas only at the edges. You will need to create one template
per piece to add to your quilt.
Next, trace your patterns, tracing the parts onto your plastic and/or
paper. Space the parts once inch in all directions, and away from the
other. Use a measuring device, such as a ruler to draw ¼-inch line at
the outer outline. On your templates, create a dot. You want the dots
to meet two seams per count. The dots are important to mark your
Next, use your direction of textile thread lines (Grain line) and
convey the arrows you have created from your model parts and relocate
it to your template. You have made basic templates; however, there is a
variety to choose from.

In addition to the basic templates, you can make window templates. The
templates are ideal for those want to pierce by hand. You can also make
