Use Templates to Make Quilts in Love of Quilting

Mar/Apr 2002 issue

Fons & Porter's

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.

Here a Chick

Page 19 Not applicable for templates

Wild Irish Rose Page 22 Not applicable for templates. Perfect strip technique quilt.

Mitered Borders Page 25 Please take a look at our 8" x 24" My Favorite Mitering Ruler

Jack in the Box Page 26 Set B; optional Set D, Diagonal Set Triangle Ruler

Fons & Porter'sWe typically cut actual-size pieces, with little or no throw-away, so we would cut Jack in the Box like this:


Piece B = #25, Set D
Piece A = #12, Set B



Unequal Nine Patch block

Page 26 Set B; optional Set D, Diagonal Set Triangle Ruler

A = #12, Set B
B = #25, Set D
C = #8, Set B
Use the Diagonal Set Triangle Ruler for the corners and setting triangles.

Omnigrid #96 cutting Page 29

The concept of this ruler is similar to our templates. Eliminate the dog ears easily with our exact-size templates and their specially engineered corners.

Crown of Thorns Page 31 Set B

Cut strips the same width for our templates but use Set B #12 to cut the squares and #13 to cut the triangles from the strips. Before cutting strips, put fabrics for triangles that will be sewn together right sides together. That way, the cut pieces will automatically be ready for chain piecing.

Devil of a Daisy Page 33 Drunkard's Path and optional Set D

What a great way to combine patchwork and applique. To make rotary cutting easier, our Drunkard's Path templates are just a little different. Find out how.

Field of Poppies Page 38 Not applicable for templates

Rosebuds Page 42 Set A

A - #6
B = #2
C = 6 7/8" square cut diagonally once.
Use Template #2 to blunt the corners.
