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.

Butterfly Garden Page 66 Various templates

If you own any of our Peaky and Spike templates, you can lay them on the patterns on page 68 and mark a new cutting line with quarter-inch tape. Set C, pieces #16 and #17 = 3 inch Peaky and Spike units Set D, pieces #22 and #23 = 4 inch units Set R, pieces #96 and #97 = 5 inch units You can lay them on the patterns on page 68 and mark a new cutting line with quarter-inch tape. If you would like a slightly larger quilt, we recommend making 6 inch pinwheel or ÒflowerÓ blocks and using our Dresden Plate template set to make a butterfly as shown in the package.

Mitered Borders Page 74 My Favorite Mitering Ruler

If you love mitered borders, you'll love our two From Marti Michell Mitering Rulers. The small one for small projects is 4 inches wide (Product #8018) and the large one is 8 inches by 24 inches (Product #8002). The laser-cut hole at the perfect starting and stopping points makes all the difference, and we think youÕll like our unique instructions for how to arrange your quilt for easy sewingÑincluded with the ruler, of course!
