Templates used for quilting come in all shapes and sizes. Typically made of a tough plastic, these guides help speed up the process of measuring and cutting out fabric pieces so they are both accurate and consistent. Most can be used with your cutting tool, so you can line them up with fabrics straight on your cutting mat. To save even more time, you can layer your fabrics to slice out same-sized pieces in minimal strokes. When choosing a template, you should consider its durability—will it hold up to chips and nicks?—but also your skill level, as some templates are designed for advanced quilting designs.
