Are you looking for an easy quilt pattern that gives your patchwork a
professional look? I have come across a great system that lets you
create your quilt easily and the finished quilt not only matches but
usually exceeds your expectations.
What makes this Perfect Patchwork 4-Inch Template Set B, Basic Square Set, Package of Seven
so fantastic and easy to use is their corner concept. Each corner is cut on the angle which means cutting pieces that match perfectly – no pinning or guessing required, and no more 'dog ears' or chunky areas in your quilt. The thick acrylic templates mean you can rotary-cut multiple layers of fabric at one time. (I recommend cutting up to six layers at a time). Combined with perfectly-sewn 1/4" (6mm) seams, you’ll be making more quilts, more easily and more quickly!
For me the benefits are:
Economical fabric use
Cut multiple layers of fabric at one time
No pinning necessary as the templates have double blunt corners for perfect alignment
1/8-inch thick, clearly marked acrylic pieces, no guessing which line to use on a ruler
1/4-inch seam allowances already added
Straight of the grain marked
See your project develop before you sew and adjust colorways if necessary
Easy to follow steps
Can be reused again and again to create different quilts

I have met several quilters who have bought some of these templates and not known how to use them. Watching Marti's video demonstrations solves all the frustration that can happen. I took a course showing how to use them and was in love immediately. What a difference a bit more information can make!

There is just one main applique block remaining to finish and that is 'Painting the roses red'. The pattern writing is coming along nicely and hopefully it will be ready some time in September for all…
Another four blocks have been created in EQ7 for the Alice in Wonderland quilt... All the fine details will be added in the pattern and you can choose whether you want to stitch them in or do as I did…
