Quilting is a time-honored craft passed down through the generations. Using fabric, thread, and basic quilting tools you can create countless designs from traditional to modern, simple to complex. Like all crafts, quilting is easier with the right tools. In addition to stocking up on quilting pins, needles, and similar quilting notions, make sure you have the right tools for cutting your fabric. Cutting templates are a tremendous help to quilters. These acrylic quilting tools come in a variety of shapes for popular quilting patterns—such as squares, triangles, hexagons, circles, and wedding rings—and are marked with lines and measurements to ensure your cut pieces will fit together properly. Rotary blades and cutters roll right along the edge of the template for a clean cut.
